Default Watercooling - which tubing

I bought a eheim 1048 waterpomp.
The in- and outlets are ID-8mm/OD-10mm

I would like to buy some Koolance blocks.

CPU: Koolance CPU-300-H06 (ID-6mm , OD-10mm)
CPU: Koolance CPU-300-V10 (ID-10mm , OD-13mm)

GPU: Koolance CHC-A09

Which diameter of tubing is the best for my pomp ?
Which diameter of CPU block should I take ?
Do I have to use some parts to change the diameter?

Please help me out.

i wouldn't recommend the koolance blocks they really suck

wich fittings to use: well the most performant fitting is 1/2" ( 12 mm ID )

and always take the same diameter for your whole setup ( example: if you take 1/2" for your block, take 1/2" for your rad and 1/2" for the pump )

So what do you suggest me ?
I've got an AMD XP 2800+ and a Hercules Radeon 9800Pro to cool.

Which blocks do you suggest?
(Perhaps also a link to some shops.)

Do I have to change the fittings of my Eheim 1048 pomp or can I find some blocks and tubing for the actual diameter? (ID-8mm, OD-10mm)

i still use the same fitting on top but i changed the inlet fitting to 1/2" ( you can find them i a local HW shop or where they sell sanitair )

i can recommend the dangerden TDX and the intimidator series, swiffie blocks are alsow pretty descent

for shops, try loveno, and tweakstore

edit: oh and for the gfx take a maze 4 gp or alsow a swiftech block

Well, I got all my block from it.....I have the white water block, and thier VGA block on my 9700pro. It cools very well, but it work best with high flow pumps. Mine is like 370gph. I have all 1/2 fittings and I used clearflex great, dont waste money on vinyl tubing spend the extra like 20 bucks on the clearflex. Hope that helps.....
