Which of these bitspower fittings for acrylic?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
hey everyone, so lately i've noticed on most sites ie. frozencpu/ppcs, that they have 2 types of multi link's... the C47 and the Enhanced multi links, i'm looking to switch to acrylic, and i'm trying to figure out which to use~

out of these 2 are the ones i've noticed. i've seen alot of older builds using the C47 if im correct, but these other ones, i think are newer?




which ones? thank you

Both fit E22 acrylic tubing 12mm.c47 is a push in style, the other is a compression. C47 can be bought for cheap over at sidewinder.

Compression, usually speaking
post #5 of 10
I doubt there is any real difference in reliability between the two. They both use two O-rings.

A compression fitting for soft tube compresses the tubing onto a barb. A "compression" hard fitting just squashes an O-ring onto the pipe so it can't leak. Whether the two O-rings are compressed onto the tube by the fitting being sized correctly to begin with like C47's or tightened down like the new ones should not make a lot of difference.

The only thing with the new ones is they may be slightly easier to use, as far as making the connections.

If @szeged is using them. They gotta be good then tongue.gif

I personally prefer the sleeper look of the C47/48's. Plus they're less than $4 thumb.gif
