Which should I use? 45 Degree 8mm ID/10mm OD Compression Fitting -OR- 45 Degree 8mm ID/11mm OD Compression Fitting

Ok, I'm not really sure what the difference is ... other than 1mm OD size.

But why would I, or more to the point, should I, pick one over the other?

Bitspower G 1/4" Silver Shiny Rotary 45 Degree 8mm ID/10mm OD Compression Fitting

vs

Bitspower G 1/4" Silver Shiny Rotary 45 Degree 8mm ID/11mm OD Compression Fitting


Basically I'm thinking about picking up 4 or 6 of these for my new build (mainly to use on my upper radiator and CPU block, and maybe a couple other places), but I'm not sure which I should get.

I'll be using only Bitspower fittings elsewhere, and the tubing is Durelene 1/2" ID by 5/8" OD.

So I'm not sure which of these two rotary compression fittings I should use.

Thanks in advance.

You'd want a 1/2" ID 5/8" OD compression (that's 13mm ID and 16mm OD). I don't think that's a very common size for compressions - I'd rather get a 1/2" ID barb and a clamp than risk a wrong sized compression.

Well, I have a bunch of 1/2" ID by 5/8" OD compression fittings already, but I was just looking for a single rotary and compression fitting in one and saw that. I guess it is just flat out the wrong one.

This is what I already use: Bitspower Premium G1/4" Shiny Silver High Flow 1/2"ID (5/8" OD) Compression Fitting

I figure at $7.95 for the fitting and $10.95 for a G1/4" 45 degree rotary -vs- $13.95 for the compression AND rotary in one, it made sense.

I guess I'll just go with standard G1/4" compression fittings for my tubing and one of these: Bitspower G 1/4" Silver Shiny Rotary 45 Degree IG 1/4" Adapter

That would work, I have a couple of those threaded 45's. I don't think I've ever seen the whole of Bitspower's fittings range, I'm just guessing they make more in 1/2 - 3/4 or 3/8 - 5/8 than the others.
