Fittings Questions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
OK, so I have a build now that works well and is watercooled with a very clean loop. However, i'm going to upgrade it soon and I was wondering if anyone knows how to fit two fittings straight together. There is an example pic at the bottom.

The fittings are right next to the fan at the bottom.

The male goes into the female of the rad then the second fittings male goes into the female of the first fitting. Im not sure I understand your question.

duct tape? if it's a male to male scenario you should try to find the correct type of threads and buy it someone like mcmaster or grainger. there might even be a local outlet near you. check for a fastenel store or even a swagelock distributor in your area, they may have the right type of union you need on the shelf.

It may not be quite as simple as using the two fittings you recommend. He might end up with the angle or direction of the curve going off in the wrong direction once the fittings are tightened. So to get around that he might need adapters that are rotaries. That might lead to another problem because then the length changes and the angle may end up in a different spot so the curve you are going for may not work. there are fittings out there to accomplish what ever run you want but you may have to buy a lot of fittings to find out what works. Example:


I have about $300 worth of fittings left over from this project. I spent most of the work on this build playing with fittings. So you have been warned.

*** did you spend 300$ on for this? you got hosed. there's plenty of places that will sell you 1x fitting at a time and generally you can find stuff that's used in industry to accomplish the same thing. for cheap. there's no need to use special "PC ooling" style fittings if you're making your own and knowing hte thread type is a huge part of saving money. sometimes its just hte label you're looking for htat's costing you money.

I didn't get hosed dude. This project went from a single loop in another case to this case. Then I tried different size reservoirs and dual loops with single then dual pumps. So this thing has gone through a lot of changes. That's why I have so many fittings left over. But you can purchase several in a situation like Cryosis's to get something to work. That's all I was saying.

I easily spent $200 on my first WC build when I was trying to keep it simple. It adds up fast with new designs and ideas, no need to get fussy.
