Best fittings?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was thinking about buying some 90 degree rotaries and some 45 degrees, but am unsure about which to buy. Any recommendations? I saw some that include the compression fitting and some that dont. It seemed like I could buy the adapter then buy the compression fittings and it would be cheaper overall...

I just dropped a lot of coin on Bitspower rotary fittings at FrozenCPU. Got most of them already. I have to admit that they are pretty nice. Nice finish on them. As for durability and long term use... can't comment. But I'm sure there are several ppl here who can.

I will say that the EK fittings are pretty nice too. They don't have any rotary fittings to my knowledge, though. Let me know if you just need regular fittings and I can hook you up.

Can't go wrong with bitspower rotaries, the quality on those fittings are just.. drool.gif You could go with enzotech for a little cheaper but still good quality. Ek has some 45 and 90 adapters as well, usually cheaper than the other two and still decent .. Out of those 3 though the paintjob on the ek fittings tend to scratch off a lot easier than bitspower or enzotech though.

I have five bitspower 90* single rotary fittings in my loop, and I agree with luckyduck, they are good quality and dont have any leak problems. I'm in the same boat though, I cant comment on long term, as they have only been in my rig for a couple months

Best for what?

Well when it comes to compression fittings, Bitspower IMO is the best. If you can, you should avoid too many 90 degree fittings. Personally I like 45 degree angle and normal compression fittings. If you must use 90 degree fittings, I prefer this type. They seem to be less restrictive then others.

Thanks guys, I have decided on just 45 degree fittings instead of 90 degree, are they restrictive compared to a normal compression? Ill dish out rep here soon

i am thinking of using 3 or 4 45 degree fittings vs compression.

i just used a few phobya 45 degree rotaries in my build. the finish and build quality looks good (better than the koolance fittings i compared them to). havent filled the system yet so i cant say about any possible leaking, but with the o-rings on the fittings and the tightness of the rotary section i cant see them leaking at all

i would put them right there with the bitspower rotary fittings (using a few of them too)

unlike the 1 piece rotary 45 degree fittings offered by enzotech, the phobya 45 degree will still need a barb or compression fitting attached to it at it is only the 45 degree rotary portion. additionally, they are pretty much open so i dont see them adding much restriction
