There's both of them, in one.

I would second that, When It comes to chemicals no one else comes close to mayhems.

Also you seem to have everything pretty much sorted, just make sure you get the same size fittings as the tubing, so you would need 7/16" ID, 5/8" OD compression fittings, or 7/16" barbs whichever one you go for. and grab some angle adaptors, they really help with laying out tubing

I narrowly avoided a costly mistake with this case: One very very important thing with the cosmos if you are not already aware, It's only got 35mm of space or something at the top so you can't get much more than a 30mm rad, I don't know if the RS360 will fit but I have to trust you've double checked that too. and if you have connectors at the back then you need to account for that too. I know that the space at the top was much to thin for my RX360's which was a deal breaker with me for that case (I'm going 900D now), Before you put any orders through, double check rad and case measurements.

I actually spent a bit of time with a block of wood cut to the right size, trying to size it up. it will definitely fit in a push or pull situtation. and should be able to fit a push and pull by about 2mm.

The RS series seem to be the slimmest ones from xspc.

I haven't ordered any of the angle adapters because of their cost, they seemed really expensive. but looking at some photos of other setups, it might be worth it, also to reduce stress on the fittings.

you know new to water cooling still really worried about leaks
