Compression fittings look good but barbs with a good worm clamp will almost never leak.

I haven't gone water yet, but I was going to get barbs because I am using a closed case with no window. I figure it aint worth 3x the price for a fancy plug that I won't see. I just want to install it and forget it for 6months before changing my liquid out. For a windowed case, compressions all the way.

Seriously. No idea why people like compression fittings. You can get clamps with designs in them, color coordinate etc... and of course they're rock solid at preventing leaks.

+1 for going against the trend

+1 for barbs

Have you ever seen comp fittings used in your car?
In your plumbing?
Anywhere?

no

Because they were originally designed for use with industrial low pressure pneumatic systems using pliable plastic tubing, not water filled hoses with elastic rebound.

Every barter/traded/bought-for-pennies-on-craigslist-system I have rescued has been a victim of compression fittings leaking or letting go.

Do yourself a favor, Matte black barbs with black reusable nylon clamps or black zip ties. Worm drive clamps will cut hose just as easily as clamp it.

i like barbs cause i have trouble tightening compression fittings frown.gif

but I have a few on my CPU block. They look nice and you dont really have to worry about clamps!
