Bitspower White Pictures! Heavy picture update...all pictures are high resolution....so click on the ones you like for a bigger image.

Lets start with a group shot, and I'll walk you through what I got.




In columns, working from left to right, and from top to bottom, I've got the following:

24x - Rotary Compression
10x - 90 Degree Triple Rotary
6x - 60 Degree Triple Rotary
10x - 45 Degree Double Rotary
6x - 30 Degree Double Rotary
6x - 50mm extender
6x - 40mm extender
6x - 30mm extender
10x - 25mm extender
10x - 20mm extender
10x - 15mm extender
10x - 7.5mm extender
10x - Mini dual G1/4 extender
8x - Low Profile Stop Fitting v2
3x - Q Plus Block
1x - Q Plus Rotary Block
4x - Y Block with Triple Rotary
4x - Anti-cyclone
5x - Mini valve
3x - D Plug
1x - Sealing Plug
4x - 3/8 to 1/4 adapters
2x - Case Top Water Fill
6x - Multi-link Adapter
6x - Multi-link Adapter G1/4


171 pieces! But as much as that sounds like...I have a lot of things to connect. My guess is I'll end up with some extras that I didn't use...but also with a need for a few more of certain items. Need to start getting this loop done so I'll know what else I need to buy. Now...here is a look at each major grouping of item in closer detail.



Rotary Compression Fittings.
Not much to add here. Everyone has seen one of these before. But Bitspower sure makes them pretty.










Angled Extenders
For me...these are the fun pieces. In the first 3 pictures, from left to right, I've lined up the 90, 60, 45 and 30 degree extenders.





...and since the 90 and 60 degree fittings are triple rotary...you can point them just about any direction you want to...



...but there are lots of ways to get to 90 degrees. From top to bottom....90 degree fitting, 2x 45 degree fittings, and a 60 and 30 degree fitting together.




...and some more fun with angled extenders...










Straight Extenders
There are not as much fun as the angled extenders, but they are very functional for short straight runs. I like tubing for longer runs, but these for short runs. From left to right, 50mm, 40mm, 30mm, 25mm, 20mm, 15mm, 7.5mm




....and some more fun with straight extenders







Dual G1/4 Adapters
Almost all of my fittings have G1/4 on one end and IG1/4 on the other. So if I want to connect two components without tubing...I need these connectors.





Q Blocks and Stop Fittings
Electrocutor is feeding me some mad scientist ideas for a water loop that will contain multiple subloops and running certain components in parallel. Some Q blocks may come in handy....and they are pretty enough where I would probably try and work one is somewhere no matter what...







Y Blocks
Ahhhh....one of the prettiest of all the fittings I believe. Will help with creating the subloops.








Mini Valves and D Plugs
I'm going to use some of these to create my own quick disconnect. I love the idea of QDC's....but I absolutely hate the look and size of the Koolance ones.


So I'll take two of the mini valves...and put 1/2 of the D plug on one, and the other 1/2 on the other....



...like this....




...and then just push the two valves together! IMHO...it is much better looking than the big ol' Koolance QDC's...and I think even a little shorter. Now...I know it will probably shed a tad more water when you pull it apart...but not much more...and not enough to matter to me. I'll try it and let you know how it works.





3/8 to 1/4 Adapters
Long story short...I bought the wrong pump top. My Bitspower dual D5 pump top has 3/8 inch openings. These will allow me to use my fittings with it. And who knows....maybe a little larger opening at the pump will create some more pressure as it condenses down to 1/4. Maybe. rolleyes.gif





Case Top Water Fill
Fairly self explanatory....






Multi-Link Fittings
These are the fittings for use with the crystal link stuff. You just push the tubes into these. The ones on the left are dual link..and the ones on the right have G1/4 on one side.





Sealing Plug
You could use this with a drain tube...






Anti-Cyclone Adapters
You screw these on the inside of your reservoir to spread the direction of the water inflow so as not to create a whirlpool....





And these are just some more random family group pictures. Because...how many chances do you get to line up 171 fittings for the camera? Got to take advantage of that!













That was a fun diversion today....but I need to get back to wiring and sleeving. Still have a lot of work to do. I love taking these pictures...so let me know which one you liked best!

Well I'm 120pgs into the thread and my GF says "That guy is insane." I just turn and say "Insane?? The guy is a GENIUS!!"
Needless to say +sub

Clearly your girlfriend is extremely intelligent. Welcome along!

I'll let you know how my valve>dplug>valve idea works. Might give you a reason to go white!

Takes time....but I have time right now. And the whole picture/edit process is really why I'm building this computer in the first place. I enjoy that part of it....and use my computer for most of the day. Need a nice one.
