Great thread B-Negative, appreciate it!

If anyone is interested, I found those Phobya fittings (nickel version) on Aquatuning UK - http://www.aquatuning.co.uk/product_info.php/info/p5346_10mm-G1-4-Plug----nickel-plated.html

Of course not. I'm pretty new to water cooling. I've only done barbs so far and didn't care which ones.

Wait... so Phobya is Aquatuning?

I didn't know that either. However it makes sense since they all appear to be German products.

Goin' to be a little less dumb every night.

Wait a minute....those Phobya fittings work with 3/8" tubing??
post #538 of 2175
PPC-s only has one of the Phobya fittings left in stock, BTW. If those would work with 3/8" they are waaaay cheaper than the Koolance.

I've been testing the Mettleair push fittings with the chromed 3/8" copper pipe. Been running an hour and not a drop. I've wiggled, twisted and turned and still no leak yet.
Running the old X20 pump with a push fitting and and a piece of the chromed copper into some flex tubing and right back to the pump so I can get max flow. Hmm. Maybe it would be better to put some restriction on it.

I dont think so, he has two different tubes in the picture.

Bought some of the homedepot tube yesterday. I also bought their bender since I had a gift card. My advice: skip on both of these. The Home depot chrome plating is very shallow and bubbles in the bends. Its also really thick so it is easy to kink with the bender they sell. It would probably be fine with a better bender, but just thought id let anyone looking to go that route know.

I disagree. No way the tubing I bought is thick at all. Also bends really easy for me with the little bender I bought at Lowes. There is a little crazing of the chrome in the extreme bends, but not enough to concern me. Lowes sells some high dollar stuff that probably has better plating, but the prices are way too much to make it worthwhile.

Since he has that Phobya fitting with copper tubing, I'm guessing that's 3/8". Guess we'll have to wait until he tells us though.
