Thanks InfoSeeker, my EML fittings have 2 inner and 1 on the male G1/4 as you described. The package comes with 4 o-rings in total so I assume it's just an extra.

Is there a difference in the ultimate fittings and the v3 fittings?

Only the first item is for 16mm OD tubing. I believe all the rest are for 12mm OD tubing.

Hey guys, thanks for the help. I should have specified that I have the 10/12 fittings. And I just wanted to re-iterate that the two o-rings on the enhanced fittings are not the same size. The inner o-ring has a smaller diameter than the outer o-ring.

Using this picture, these two o-rings are not the same size on my fittings:

My fittings came with a bunch of extra o-rings but they only work under the compression ring, they do not fit in the groove inside the fitting itself.

Hopefully my problem is more clear, so if I want to replace the INNER o-ring, do I need the multi-link o-rings, or standard?

That is odd in that of all the 16mm EML fittings that I have measured the O-rings, the two internal O-rings are the exact same size.

The only one that is different is the one which seals the G1/4" threads.

If there is, it is not really noticeable in the photos provided by Bitspower.
The only thing I noticed is perhaps some variation in the machining of the barb itself, but that may just be optical.
Either type should serve you well.

The groove is slightly misleading as the o-ring sits well inside the groove which then makes it look smaller - It is a tight fit for the o-ring.

You may want to check out the following post I made in regards to assembling these.

While it specifically pertains to the BP-EML16 fittings it also applies to their 12mm variants as well.

^^^ indeed should be very helpful!

got my rig back up and thought id share my love for Bitspower fittings and tanks!!

I also thought id mention.... I am using a dual loop setup, with a dedicated pump/tank unit for each loop. Im big on DDC pumps and as such, im using 4 of them total, 2 for each loop. When Bitspower released the colored aluminum heatsink housings and magic cube tops, I was really excited as I could finally go with a configuration of that to which im using now.... So I bought 4 of the magic cubes along with the lateral plate connections so that I could have 2 pumps integrated together in succession for maximum performance. However, upon receiving them and installing everything, the pump tops would leak at the point where they are connected. I had been concerned too that the O-ring being used inbetween the two pump tops was too thin and would not be able to provide a good seal, and lo and behold, I was correct.

Fortunately, I was able to remedy the situation after fiddling with them for some time. I actually ended up utilizing thicker O-rings that are made by EK, specifically the o-rings that are included with all their graphics card waterblocks that go with the included G1/4" spacers. I must say though that it was very difficult to get them into position and secure, as they are a slight bit larger than the groove in the pump top where the stock o-ring sits, and it took ALOT of pressure and squeezing of the two pump tops together while simultaneously holding the lateral plates in place and screwing all the bolts into place. But thankfully, after doing so, I didnt have any leaks and everything has worked flawlessly since, and the "tanks" in my rig are one of my most prized pieces I have wink.gif

Well done, looks great.
Hopefully you sent feedback to Bitspower regarding their o-ring issue.
