Do the Fesser compression fittings work for your Zalman tubing?

I'm looking for a Thermalright bolt-thru kit

Then again, I've never bought anything from EK. I seriously don't understand why they get so much praise. They release worse quality, uglier, and worse performing components than pretty much anyone else, but charge more for them. I guess it's true what they say - charge more than is reasonable for something, and people will assume it is actually superior.

Lets see.....Their quality has been iffy in the past, but they are pretty much on top right now.

Their blocks being uglier is complete opinion. However, they make some of the nicest looking blocks on the market if you are trying to display your coolant, i.e. Mayhems Pastel.

And in terms of performance, they are actually extremely good in areas, and not that bad in others. Here is a link to Stren's Titan waterblock round-up: Here

As you can see, in terms of GPU core temperature, all of the blocks vary by only 2-3 degrees C, And it pretty much is the same at high flow rates. However, in terms of VARM temperatures on cards, EK's blocks pretty much annihilate the competition by a large margin.

And to end it off, EK generally is one of the cheapest options. So I don't know where you get this statement.

Yeah, I sound like an EK fanboy, but who cares. I like dealing with facts, and right now, EK does have some of the best blocks on the market.

I hate fanboys/fangirls. You ruin the friendlyshilling atmosphere of OCN./s
