post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Am about to build my first water cooling system I have seen so many guides online and video tutorials on water cooling and am pretty confident know. So before I begin I done a list of things I need I understand everything has to be compatible with each other like the size of the fittings berbs the tube

drop the liquid coolant and go distilled water + silver coil or any biocide. A coil is cheaper and reusable, plus distilled water is cheaper.

I kinda like what you have going,are you sure that is 5/8 OD tubing? One thing with rotary fittings, if any force pushes down or up or to the side o a rotary fitting,they can leak.
