Which compression help

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'll be going with green primochill tubing and i'm trying to debate on which compressions to get, the xspc black chrome or the ek black compressions. Which one do you guys think will look better?
XSPC Black Chrome Compression Fittings
EK Compression Fittings

Why ek black? I'd rather get bp or enzo blacks than ek at this point.

The xspc actually look great and work decent especially for the price. Having built rigs using bp, enzo, and xspc compressions they each have their plus and minus points. However since xspc are 4 bucks at jab-tech, I'd probably build all future rigs with the xspc fittings.

If I had to choose between them I'd go with the EK ones but My personal choice would be These ones.

The xspc's are different then other compression fittings. They have no stop or back to them. I had a problem where I tried to screw the cap off the hose and the whole fitting comes out because there is nothing to grab but the hose when you unscrew.

Kind of hard to explain but if I could do it again I would probably get something else.

Bitspower are too fat for my likes. Why the ek ones over the xspc ones?
Lights out, I won't be taking my loop apart a whole lot, I'm going to have a drain loop in it.

I figured you were gonna say that And I personally chose ek over xspc because this time ek seems to have a better built quality product than xspc.

I see, I honestly really like the looks of the xspc compressions but I dont know how they'll jive in my loop, but at the same time I think black is overdone. I like the ek ones because they aren't overly fat and the logo is nicely done.


Edit: stop doing that lights out I got to say in photos the chrome looks nice to but I haven't seen them in use yet, can you get some photos for me?
