Upgrading into an 800D, need some advice... - Page 3

post #21 of 35
Compression fittings are really nice, but they can get really expensive really quick. Especially if you get angled fittings or adapters. Another good option is to get barbs that are slightly bigger than the tubes so you don't have to use clamps. Most common application of that is 7/16" ID tubing over 1/2" barbs. I have no experience with this myself but there are numerous people doing this with no problems

Now what about fittings? I'd like to get away from just the plastic clamps, what would you guys suggest I go with? I'm also thinking I will change the color of the tubing and will probably go with something white or black.

Compression fittings are great and I highly recommend them for aesthetics and performance. As for which fittings it's down to personal preference. I personally would only probably recommend the XSPC, Bitspower and Monsoon (only from what I've read online, not personal experience) fittings.

I think I'd love to do compression fittings and think I'll look into it, to see if it fits in my budget. What other adapters would I need if I were to go with compression fittings? I'm not totally sure what the adapters would be for.

I already have 2x7970s and with Komodo blocks... were you trying to say you are wanting to do that?

Well man... yea I saw that they are pretty expensive.

I'll update the thread next week when I get the case. I guess I'll make this sort of my build thread for it. I'll post as I buy other stuff also. Thanks for the help so far guys! thumb.gif

Just upgraded my cpu block from that exact one to a raystorm shaved off about 5-6c under load. You can also get the kit that comes with D5 bay res, raystorm and 240 for couple bucks cheaper.

Also you wont see much, if any difference between a 140 and a 120.

Just to reply to this... I will be going with the raystorm CPU block, but don't know if it'll be now. I might actually end up going with this than adding bling by getting the fittings. biggrin.gif

I looked into it a bit more and my PSU won't fit with the 240 rad, unless I remove the HDD cage. I'll have to see if I can get it out of there easily before commiting to going with the 240 rad. I think the 2x 120s and 1x 360 should be good for now though. tongue.gif

Is there any reason to go with one tubing size over another? Just wanting to look at my options for tubing. I am using 7/16 x 5/8 tubing right now.

Ive always used 7/16 x 5/8 but i recently switched over to 1/2 x 3/4 and it feels much larger. Id personally stay with the 7/16 i find it easier to work with and it dosent feel so large to me.
