What kind of drain valve have you guys uesed with your 10mm copper loops? Isn't rather important to have a well thought out drain system as those copper pipes are propably not as easy to work with when draining.

This is what I have and it works pretty well. Because my 240 rad has the fittings at the top some water gets trapped. I just unscrew the fitting in the res coming from the gpu and blow into it to clear the rest.

May not be ideal but it does the job.

So, Primochill is coming out with fittings for acrylic tubing which can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJxAd94t_j0

The fittings are intended for use with 1/2" OD acrylic tubing. It will release near the 15th of June, and will sell at $6.95 a piece, but they will also sell it in 4-packs. My question is, does acrylic tubing in the US use the same dimensions/standards as the copper tubing? Will something like this work for 1/2" copper tubing bought from the Home Depot or Lowes in the US?

Its either that, or I stick to the Festo fittings.

1/2" copper tubing in the US is actually 5/8" outer diameter. The nominal size refers to the inner diameter of the pipe, so it won't work. Home Depot and Lowes don't stock actual 1/2" rigid pipe, only coiled.

Its either that, or I stick to the Festo fittings.
Acrylic tubing sold in the states is sold by ID OD.

I wouldn't speculate on the PrimoChill fittings, until they are avaiable and can be purchased, to see if using copper is viable.

believe me I know the difficulties of sourcing the proper materials in the U.S. your best bet is going to be online ordering, not Home Depot.

One final recommendation I can give to everyone looking to do a ridgid style loop, is to
Pick the fittings you like, then source the tubing to match the fittings. Some fittings will work with both acrylic and copper. Acrylic is very inexpensive when compared to copper, I have used acrylic for mocking up some complex bends, then re created in copper so as not to waste a piece if I messed up a compound bend.

If you use the method I outlined on the first post,there is no need for making an acrylic run first.

Pretty much all hard tube sold is sold by the OD as the fittings tend to be external fixing thus this is the most valid measurement.
