Help!!! I want to build my own copper tube water cooling system!!!

Help!!! I want to build my own copper tube water cooling system!!!

What I want to do is to use copper tubing instead of the Vinyl.

My problem is that I am not sure how to do the fittings. How would I
connect a copper tube to a cpu water block or a gpu water block when the threads do
not match up?

I was trying to use the usual plumbing components from a plumbing store but as I
said the threads don't match up. And the plumbing store I went to had no idea how
to get it to work.

Any advice would be most helpful.
Thank you!!!!

PS> This is my first thread ever on Overclock.net so please if you can help
me out make your post as exact and simple as possible.
Thank you!!!

Okay I have taken a look at the items... so those fitting have the correct thread to fit into a water block, and the other end they have the O-ring and screw to tighten the copper tubing?

Um... do i have to put a flair on the end of the copper tubing for it to fit... or is it just a
straight in and then tighten?

Sorry buddy, that is something I do not know. I'm sure if you contacted B Negative though, he would be able to answer any questions you got.
