If you are looking for a regular 45 degree rotary fitting, you may want to check this one out (assuming you are using 1/2" ID 3/4" OD tubing):

Thanks, do those turn at all once they are plugged into something? I'd hate for them to face the wrong direction once I tighten them down. I use 7/16" x 5/8 over 1/2" barbs. When using compression fittings can the same sizes be used or does it have to match exact to the tubing being used. I like the 1/2" barbs with my tubing for the tight irremovable fit.

For the rotary connector, I'm not sure if you can still rotate them once them are in place. However, for the rotary compression/barb fittings, once you tighten them down, they can be turned in the direction of your choice.

For compression fittings, the ID and OD of the tubing must match or else it won't work - either the collar won't fit or it won't provide a secure clamp. So if you are using 7/16" ID and 5/8" OD tubing, you must find compression fittings that match those sizes such as this one:

Since you are a barb guy, they do make rotary barbs as well, but I couldn't find the 1/2" one on the Sidewinder website. You may need to call Gary and ask him directly if he has any in stock, since I hear the website's stock listing isn't updated that quickly. Microcenter did have one set the last time I checked, but it looks like they are out of stock now in the Paterson location :

Apparently, I'm still asleep. Here's one of the rotary barbs from Bitspower:

There are Enzotech's as well if you don't mind mixing fittings.

The ones at Micro Center were out of stock because I ordered them..lol I received an email stating Pick Up Order Cancelled on it though since they were out of stock even before the listing on their website. This is after they emailed me Pick Up Order Ready.

Oh snap!

Sadly, Microcenter isn't very good with their watercooling selection. I went to the store about a month ago because the website had this fantastic deal for cheap 3/8" compression fittings - something like $0.59 a piece! I did the online order to pick up at the Paterson store, along with other miscellaneous parts, and lo and behold, those compressions really were not in stock according to the final pick up order.

I still went to pick up the other items anyway, and one guy did help me try and look for something comparable, since he seemed to be the only one who knew anything about watercooling during that shift. Unfortunately, their selection (and he even admitted it too) is not what it once used to be and the online inventory is not always kept up to date in real-time.

I guess I understand that they just don't really make money at all on the enthusiast parts, and actually they tend to lose more over time by offering those clearance discounts on parts that most of their customer base have no understanding about.

Ran into a problem.




I need that fitting to be able to turn over the top of the fan. I was looking at the following but I'm not sure if it would work..

Actually I think a simpler solution would just be to put the fans on the bottom side of the radiator. Tired of flipping this case around!
