Help with fittings

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi guys
I have a corsair 500r white case and i'm look to get a custom WC.
So far I have selected these parts.

Swiftech Reservoir for MCP35X pump Revision 2b

Swiftech MCP35X 12 VDC PWM Controllable Pump - White

Swiftech Apogee HD CPU Waterblock - White

Swiftech MCR220-XP eXtreme Performance Radiator Series

I'm looking for a simple clean setup. As for the Compression Fittings I have no idea what size to get, also for the tubing
Any help in that area will be great
thanks

Something like this

It depends the size of the tubing. If you get 1/2 tube you must get a 1/2 compression fitting. If you want to use compression fittings on your pump you should get a top

Edit: The pump already have 1/4 threads so you dont need a top

That depends entirely on what style you want to set your loop as. Some water coolers use nothing but straight fittings. Some use nothing but 45s. Some use nothing but 90's. Some blend them all.

Most common fittings and tubing is 10MM Inner diameter and 13MM Outer Diameter. if you go for that you will need to get the same size tubing. For angled fittings I would advise you to plan and draw your loop on a piece of paper and route the tubing to see how you make it work without bending.

Thats for helping guys
My setup will be just like the the pic listed above. I will only be using the top Rad however.
What is the white thing that connect the CPU block and the pump. Is it just some kinda of adapter? Would need something like that it seems.

Are you talking about this?
If so, thats just a sli/crossfire bridge/adapter to connect multiple graphics cards together. Are you going to be cooling your graphics card also? If not, then you can just go straight from pump to cpu block

Here is a drawing of how I wanna set my loops
Base on the crappy pic smile.gif
How many types of fittings do I need

post #10 of 21
You could probably get away with only straight fittings for your loop. None of the angles seem too harsh and there is plenty of spacing.
