With 7/16 hose and 1/2 barbs you won't have any issues other than getting the hose on the barbs.

Yea, that's why I just want to go with the compression fittings right off the bat. I know the kit comes with the barb ends and I'll still use those but only on the connections to and from the reservoir and to and from the radiator. The CPU Block and the Motherboard in/outs I want to use compression fittings with bends. Sucks tho, these 90 and 45 degree ones are like 15-20 bucks a piece!

I have 10 of those same fittings that Xander linked, just a bigger size. They have been fantastic for 8 months now.

I also recommend them based on price too.

I just got a XSPC Raystorm block and when I install the screws the part B tighten part doesn't tighten on two screws. What can I do?

Do you mean this "part B tighten part"?

Raystorm cpu block

If so what's the problem? Are they just jammed so tight to the top knob you can't budge them? If so, unscrew the post from the backplate and use two sets of pliers to turn them apart, using rags or something similar between the knurled knobs and the pliers jaws to help keep from damaging them.

Or are you talking about something else?

Yes that part B when I try to tighten it down It doesn't get tight. So, I don't have equal pressure on one side. It's almost like the threads are not right.

Assuming it's new might want to contact whatever retailer you bought it from to explain the issue and see if they can send you new posts or if you need to RMA it.

edit: I'm assuming that the 'part b' knob is the only thing turning but it never tightens down? If that's the case it sounds like the post is probably stripped. If the whole post is turning then it may be the backplate that's stripped &/or the lower threads on the post.

I emailed XSPC. I guess I will email Frozen CPU too. I does have a very deep scratch on the copper block also.

Yeah you should always try the retailer first, especially if it's still within the 30 day return window (a lot longer than that in the EU). XSPC support should be your last resort. I like a lot of their products but their support can be hit & miss. Several times now I have been unable to ever even get a reply from them.

edit: FCPU, on the other hand, has easily been the best customer service I've ever dealt with. Call their number during their working hours for the best service as emails can take a lot longer, especially if they need more info and then you have to back & forth. Their # & hrs are listed at the top of every page.

Yep, Just the knurled knobs never tighten down.

It's funny that an XSPC Replacement Mounting Hardware kit is for sale on frozen cpu for $4.99.
