Connecting 2 rads together in the top compartments of TH10.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
How are people connecting the 2 rads on top of the TH10. I have 2 bitspower 90 degrees connectors fitted but finding it hard to get my hands/fingers up there to connect the tubes. Should I use the SLI connector from koolance? Cheers

That could be a good work around. It can be hard to reach certain places and fittings can be a pain in cramped areas. You can se Bitspower SLI fittings or Koolance fittings as well to get over this. But its still going to be difficult. Remember, that right now your using a pipe which is flexible. In the SLI fittings they are not, so makes it slightly more difficult to do.

I just used a q-tip and a drop of dish soap. Lubed up the outer tubing (just the length of the compression housing), and it made the job of tightening the fitting over the tubing a hell of a lot easier, especially when it started to compress more. Even if it turns a few m.m. at a time, it'll eventually tighten up for you.

Thanks for your replies. I'm using 1/2 ID 3/4 OD tubing, since the tubing isn't very long its difficult to hold and push into the barbs. With the koolance sli fittings (never used one before) I think its a matter of attaching in one end ... extend the tube .... attach the other end ... then tighten the middle bit. Is that how it works?

Yes - if you're not sure the exact distance you need you could get the DangerDen ones as they come with all three options
