Thanks for confirming. What is the importance of the connector attached though? I don't recall that when purchasing the block, is ti only for sli use?

That little connector is for gaining top and bot ports like any other waterblock has, but EK for some reason didn't put both on his new waterblocks, so you gotta buy that extra connector if you dont want to use 90 degree barbs.

So i cant just use a compression fitting on it attached to the hose without a 90 degree?

Are theses the correct one's to use?

And for everyone else on water, what tubing size and sli connector (if any) are you using?
As a first shot, looking only on product available on aquatuning, does this look correct :

Yup those are the ones. It isn't necesary, i mean if you dont use it, then you will have the 2 ports facing to the bottom of the case, or with the bridge that comes with every block, facing to the outside. You could just use 2 90 degree fittings, but imo using that connector gives a better look.

There are some sli fittings that are adjustable, I would prefer those instead of a fixed one. Can't remember their name tho.

You might be referring to the Koolance adjustable SLI connectors? Something like THIS.
I've used a few of them and they work great.
