i suppose i could try the primochill tubing on the new fittings to see how well it fits if at all. if its as large a hassle as it was tonight, im not going to risk nicking the fittings again.

By nicking you mean you scratched the paint right? The only fittings and tubing available for me are the lok-seals and the primochill tubing.. go Canada!..

On a different note, I ordered an H220 from Newegg Canada! Didn't expect them to carry it. Very excited now!

No, i mean that there is a small gash in the tip of the fitting now because the tubing was a pita to get on, and even worse to try and get off of the lok seal fitting. i had to cut down the tubing length-wise to remove it and it left the gash on the fitting.

OPTION 1 vs. OPTION 2

OK, I'm trying to decide between two setups. Which of these do you think will provide me with the best (coolest) results?

(NOTE: I already have all the parts for OPTION 1; however, they're unopened, so I still have time to sell or return them).
(NOTE 2: I don't really care about appearance)

OPTION 1
1 x H220 Kit for CPU
2 x Zalman LQ-320 (each with 120mm rad) = Red Mods for 2 x GPU
2 x Dwood Fan Bracket (120mm Fans)

OPTION 2
1 x H220 Kit
2 x MCW82 Universal GPU Waterblock
1 x Swiftech SLI/CrossFire Bridge
1 x MCRx20-QP Radiator (Dual 120mm)
1 x XSPC Tubing
? x Fittings, clamps, barbs (No clue what I'd need)

For option 2 you'll need 6 additional fittings for the SLI/CrossFire Bridge and you'll need 2 more fittings for the second radiator. I would recommend barb fittings for the Bridge and compression for the radiator, but it's up to you. Just make sure that two of them are 3/8 x 5/8 size and the other four need to be 1/2 x 3/4 and you should be good to go. Our MCW82 Universal water blocks come with 1/2 x 3/4 barbs and that's why four of the barbs being put on the bridge need to also be 1/2 x 3/4. This will also mean that you'll need to purchase some 1/2 x 3/4 tubing to connect the cards to the blocks. I'm just saying this in order to save you from having to purchase replacement 3/8 x 5/8 barbs for the MCW82s. If you'd prefer to go that route you're more than welcome to do so.

I think I understand you. If I wish to go with all 3/8 ID tubing, I would need:

(2) MCW82 waterblock
(1) MCRx20-QP Dual-120mm Radiator
(1) SLI/CrossFire Bridge

(8) 3/8 x 5/8 Barbs = (4) for SLI Bridge, (4) for Waterblocks
(4) 3/8 x 5/8 Lok-Seal Compression Fittings = (2) for Front Rad, (2) for top and bottom ends of SLI Bridge
(2) 45° Swivel Elbow Lok-Seal™ adapter = (1) for Front Rad, (1) for bottom of SLI Bridge
(2) HydrX PM Coolant
(1) 3/8 ID XSPC Clear Tubing

Questions:
1. Are there any other clamps or parts needed?

2. Could I use your adjustable G¼ Male-Male Lok-Seal™ SLI & CrossFireX connectors -- instead of 1/2 ID tubing and 1/2 ID barbs -- to connect SLI Bridge to the Waterblocks? If so, what length connector is required between the blocks and bridge?

3. Regarding the additional Dual-120mm Rad: should I get it with, or without, an integrated reservoir?

I think this product has become very popular to the fact that it makes us newbs, welcomed to water-cooling and getting familiar for future projects! Great job Swiftech, great business and great customer service!

I have, but that's how the budget ends up doubling... maybe someday.

You should use clamps for all of your barb fittings. Our adjustable G1/4 connectors can't be used in conjunction with these MCW82 water blocks. This is due to the way the ports aren't coming out of the top and bottom, but from the side of the card. I think you'll realize what I mean when you look at a full-cover water block. You won't need another integrated reservoir because the radiator that comes with the H220 already has one. Adding a micro res though isn't a bad idea because this will give you a visual means of checking your coolant level.
