Default Hydro X tube bending tools

Hey all, first time poster.

I'm in the process of my first water build. After seeing the Paul's Hardware build in the 280X I decided to emulate it with a few minor differences.

I just ordered fittings and tubing but I still need the tools for bending.

I went with the 12mm Corsair tubing and I'm curious what the internal diameter is and where I should get a silicone tube for it?

I appreciate any help. I'll be sure to post progress pictures.

It is 10mm inner diameter. You can find the silicone bit in all sorts of places, i got mine at microcenter.

I bought this one at my local retailer in Australia (so probably not much use to you), but they do seem to be pretty freely available - try your local store.

For acrylic tubing it's the best to go with fine toothed hand saw. Then a silicone rod made for 10mm ID tubing, tube reamer and a heat gun.

A fine and quick guide.

Thanks for the input guys. I've been watching videos non stop about bending. I ordered double the tubing so I can afford to learn.
