Well yeah ... in the summer ... outside ... and not that common, at least in North America and Europe. But I'm thinking, if you're computer room is 95F, you'd probably get more bang for your buck buying a window AC unit than spending it on a water cooling rig. And you'd be a lot more comfortable in the bargain. wink.gif

I just figured out that Swiftech fittings are not compatible with Primochill tubing. What Primochill calls 3/8-5/8 is not what Swiftech calls it. Anyone know what tubing does work with Swiftech fittings or what fittings work with Primochill tubing?

I grabbed that danger den kit on FCPU the black.. ish tubing. It was a bit of a pain, but what I did was dropped the end of the tub into some hot water before I tried to use the tubing. It wasn't easy to screw on the fitting either, but I used a wrench and all was good.

You could try the hot water on your tubing first before you buy something else...

I am trying to use the Swiftech Lok-seal compression fittings like the one used in their expansion video on the graphics card. The problem is not getting the tubing on the barb, the problem is that Primochill tubing has a larger outside diameter than the Swiftech tubing. You can’t get the collet on, at least no without really forcing it. It is easy to see the size difference in tubing, you just take a loose collet and slide it along the Swiftech tubing and the Primochill tubing, there is an obvious difference in size.

Seems strange that one company’s 5/8 of an inch is not the same 5/8 as another company.

The threads of the Lok-seal fittings are fragile, so if you end up accidentally tightening them while trying to get the collet on, you end up with a ripped apart fitting. You can see that the collet isn’t even that far on the fitting:

I went ahead and retested all my temps again. I did a cpu and gpu stress test at the same time running. The cpu topped out at 51°c and my 7970 @ 46°c. Seems like good numbers to me. Currently my house temp is about 74°f.

I had that same problem so I went with barbs, sends like that tubing is much thicker.

I had the SAME problem, I ended up getting XPSC and it works perfect with swiftech fittings and the barbs on the pump/rad.

Damnit, I just bought the same lok-seal compression fittings and my primochill tubing just arrived. I guess i'll have to see about returning it. frown.gif
