Well the shiny part is usually made out of aluminum so close enough tongue.gif (I actually couldn't think of any other round electronic object so that's a factor too)

Nevermind, I misread that you wanted 1/2 inch. They're really, really hard to find for acrylic. I searched a long time and have given up on it.

Oh well that is fine. What size acrylic is the Bitspower c47 for?

Hi guys!

I'm building my very first water cooling rig, and was looking to do exactly what you've done here, B Negative. Awesome!

I'm pretty much set on getting the Primochill white acrylic tubing posted in this thread:

http://primoshop.tylerindustries.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=317

But I can't seem to find any push fittings in either matte black, red, or white. Can someone link me to a a good assortment of push fittings (the kind with teeth/retaining mechanism) that aren't silver or copper looking?

Thank you!

You will need to paint them until E22 get the black fittings out.

It seems that primochill had this acrylic tubing into their sleeve. I've looked ont their website and the tubing seems to be compatible with the primochill ghost compression fittings. Cames in many colours and lenghts... But can't buy it anywhere for the moment. I've ordered some e22 tubing and some c47 bitspower fittings for my build. I'll order the primochill asap and have a look at both of them. biggrin.gif

Advice...

Wait until someone tests this primochill tubing with their fittings, we have no info on that for the moment.... Go for the e22 and the c47 fittings, it has been tested, works just fine and bitspower is top notch when speaking of fittings.

Acrylic tube is not flexible, it won't work with primochill ghost nor any kind of compression fittings because the tube will just shatter as soon as you screw on the compression part.
