I used Koolance compressions for my white primochill 3/8x5/8 tubing. Those fittings close without issue.

You could try lubing *ahem* the outside of the tube so the retaining ring slides on better.

Will regular lube work or should I use the stuff that heats up?

Hi! I just gone through your build log. I know your front panel is all done but maybe you could add your avatar in one of the hexagons in the center or corner of the panel?

Outstanding mod!

Cheers man, was considering it! At the moment I am liking the stripy front most so that is what I have on right now, it would be hard to laser cut the logo and have it in one of the grills though

Hey man, I went through your front panel portions again and came up with this.
Haha not sure if you wanna use them but here you go. My opinions.

I was thinking you could get an acrylic piece for your logo and maybe put an LED behind it or smth.



Cheers mate!
