Dropping down to 7/16 x 5/8 tubing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm dropping down the tubing on my loop from 1/2id x 3/4od to 7/16 x 5/8 Primochill Advanced LRT. I also want to get some 45 degree roatary compression fittings but have a question. I'd like to get the Alphcool 16/10 45° Revolvable comp fitting. Now, my question is as follows, are those the right fittings? It shows them as 16/10mm which is a bit smaller than the us measurement.

Here are the links to what I'm wanting to get

I do not believe you be able to use the Alphacool fittings for a 7/16" x 5/8", 45° compression rotary fitting. After checking several sites, all I could find for Alphacool was 5/8" (16mm) x 3/8" (10mm). There are many alternatives though.

Here are a couple rotaries and rotary w/compression fittings in black:

http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/bimablro45g1.html

I even looked here (below), if they don't have it, I don't think it exists! Watercooling UK lists a large amount of Alphacool fittings and parts.
http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/cat/Alphacool-Fittings_118.html

There of course other G1/4 alternatives to the above if pricing and/or look are issues such as - Enzotech 45° rotary, Phobya 45° rotary...etc.

To get the color and/or look you desire, you may have to consider buying a G1/4" rotary and add a compression fitting to it.
I am wondering? Since the tubing comes in 1/2" x 3/4" in the same colors and price, why drop down tubing size?

For 7/16 5/8 tubing you want 12/16mm fittings.

16/10mm is as mentioned for 1/2 5/8 tubing.

I'm moving my rig to a smaller case that I had previously modded a bit. It's mostly for room. I did a test fit and it was very snug. I hope to gain some room without loosing to much flow. Also, this is my 1st water loop so I'm very new to it.

Well, after all that, I decided to stick with 1/2 x 3/4 tubing. I ordered a couple of these http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_346_951&products_id=38172 and some of the Primochill Advanced LRT tubing.

Thanks for the help

Excellent! I am glad you were able to work it all out and happy if I helped. XSPC makes nice fittings. They are underrated by some, but they are high flow, work perfectly, are less expensive and hold up well. Good choice.

That's what I'm using now, XSPX compression. Just gonna add the 45° rotary to the rad and block. Hopefully I can squeeze all of it in my new/ old case. It's a small midtower.
