Like i said before, all my fitting are oredered on ebay.co.uk from the seller called Mizu-cooling.
We also have ebay US sellers and a few US retailers selling these already. Aliexpress was considerably cheaper for me, almost 50% of what Bitspower goes for here and about ~65-85% of the cost of US barrow sellers . The main reason I went with ali i was the large quantities of fittings I needed. Most US sellers had about half a dozen or so fittings.
I ended up getting:
-34x straight 12mm hardline fittings
-12x 90° rotary 12mm hardline fittings
-28x dual 90° 12mm hardline fittings
-2x anti vortex
-1x m-m adapter
-1x visual flow indicator
-2x D5 acetal tops
-2x D5 housing kits
-2x D5 210mm tube reservoirs
No one in the US had this quantity and some of the items were not even offered. So aliexpress.com is probably the best source to get everything if you can't find a better price and get good shipping from there(contact the seller for discounts).
Overall, working with the sellers, I was able to save about +$100 USD in both the items and shipping (most came quickly via DHL). If you guys are needing just a few for a small to medium loop, check what's available domestically. If you guys are going all out with a large or dual (or multi) loops, aliexpress might be your choice. Its not perfect, but you guys are welcome to contact me for info on ordering from there
Some shots of the stuff I bought:
