I've been rethinking my fitting choice and am wondering whether I should go with Koolance instead of Bitspower. Instead of rotaries I was thinking about going with quick disconnects on all of the waterblocks since the cost will be quite similar in the end. I'd put VL3N-MG threaded male fittings on nearly all of the blocks (cpu, ram, mobo, top and bottom gpu) which would make maintenance much easier, especially reseating blocks.
I'll be able to use this to get angles
Getting a bracket like this will also allow me to expand the loop outside of the case into a DD radbox holding 3 more gtx560s.
(only I'd piece it together so I could use compression fittings)
Any thoughts on this? I know they will restrict flow by a little, but will I need to add 2x more D5s over the 2 that I already have in order to counteract their restriction? It's also a shame that koolance has all of their fittings in black EXCEPT the quick disconnects. Oh well, chrome will still look good in this build. It will make my life easier as well since I can go with all koolance blocks instead of having to piece together all black blocks from different manufacturers since I refuse to buy EK.Edited by fat_italian_stallion - 6/20/11 at 7:50am
