The DT 5Noz is a very good performing block, good choice. Any reason you want compression fittings? trust me the amount ive spent on comp fittings before then wished i'd with with some nice cheaper shiny bitspower barbs.

Those look FAR better than bitspower black compression fittings imo.

What are you talking about?
Also I will be adding a GPU block soon and possibly getting a crossfire 7970 going so another gpu block after that. I have the money, I just don't want to spend it all in case I run into a medical emergency or something.

I was talking about the reply under this sry forgot to quote it

The last thing you want it to get all your sweet new gear and not be able to set it up how you want because you're missing a fitting

I heard that compression fittings are safer.

I was going to just get some stiff barbs that hold like an alligator, then Jubilee clip the ends. (Jubilee clips go on the ends of truck radiators btw)

compression fittings are easier for new comers to watercooling i find.

safer in terms of harder to mess it up and have a leak.

plus i think they look much cleaner in a loop.

I would stay away from 90 degree ones. I'm new to water cooling too. In fact I'm doing my last of my research before I hit my add to card button =P. If you have to many 90 degree's fittings I read can slow your water flow down causing issues with temps (1-2 degrees). Over time and with a lot of components ( future GPU block add maybe?) it add's up. Correct me if im wrong. Just what i read and though i might share rolleyes.gif

As far as I understand you would need rather lot of them (around ~20 ?) to have an noticeable effect on your flow rate. And with that amount of fittings the length of the tubing and amount of "stuff" in your loop will get you probably before the negligible difference between restriction of a straight fitting and 90 degree fitting.

Edit: I would like to add, that if you insist on comparing straight and 90 degree fittings then for a proper comparison one should also take into account the difference in tubing length between the loops with 90 degree fittings and straight fittings. Presumably the 90 degree ones would allow a bit shorter tubing overall if applied where they make sense.

lol You are wrong actually. 90 degree fittings are required sometimes to prevent kinks which will REALLY impede your flow rate. Besides my pump is a 1500 LPH pump. That's 396.2580785372226 gallons per hour. Or just 396 Gph. I will have no problem with 2 or 4 90 degree angles* lol. Also I should have a high over pressure.

To add to the question about rotaries: IMO they are necessary to use with angled fittings in order to ensure the fitting points in exactly the direction you want.

I know what Jubilee clips are... wth.gif

Also, its a misconception that first timers go with compression fittings because they are said to be 'safer'. That is a false claim, they are just the same as barbs but with a threaded ring, compression fittings are for the aesthetics.

This is personal preference and you have your own opinion, however i disagree.

The amount of flow restriction is minuscule, i have a 90 on the end of my pump and 2 45's on my cpu block 1 45 on my radiator and 1 45 on my gpu.
