Need input from eVGA Titan Hydro Copper owners

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have ordered an eVGA Hydro Copper Titan Black video card. However, I can't find anywhere that gives a detailed description of the water block connections and the fittings. I was told they include both standard and "compression" fittings, but it does not list the size. Does the connectors on the waterblock use standard G 1/4" so I can use the Bitspower compression fittings I have now for my tube size.

In case you need to know, my current fittings are all ID 1/2" OD 3/4" so I must have connectors that will work with that size of fittings/tubing.

Also, can the Hydro Copper connectors be moved so they can have tubes running to the side (not the length of the card, just the edge side) straight instead of under the card like they have them now? Not a big deal, but I will have to cut new tubing to reach them, but thought you may be able to move/adjust the connections on the card.

Thanks for the input

99% of all water cooling fittings are g 1/4 so you don't ever have to worry about thread type. If you use compression fittings the tube has to match it identically. I'm not sure what you mean by moving the fittings. The in and out ports cannot be moved. However you can buy 90 degree fittings to change the direction of the tubing if that is what you are looking for.

I am sure they are just like my Titans's. Come with 2 ea of 3/8x1/2 and 1/2x5/8 compression fittings. 1 ea inlet and outlet on top and bottom of connector manifold. Two stop plugs are included. Threads are standard 1/4". Pictures of the block are pretty clear if you have seen a water block previously.

Thanks, that's what I thought from the photos about the fixed ports. I was referring to moving the ports so they were not at the bottom. My EK waterblock I am using now allows you to fix the ports for bottom, top or side mounting on the block so you can adapt it more to your build. Using the 90 degree fittings though won't be a problem to adapt it since I have some of those already.

I was also wondering if the fittings came with different sizes or just one since I use larger ID 1/2" OD 3/4" water tubes. Another user answered that and it seems to come with more than one compression fitting size.

thanks

The specs and photos don't say what size the fittings are that's included. Since they only ship in those two sizes, I will just use my own Bitspower compression fittings since they are ID 1/2" OD 3/4" size.

There are plugs on either the top or the bottom of the in and out ports. You can choose which side you want to use and place the plugs in the opposite side.
