They were but they are getting a good reputation now and it has pushed the price up.

Also they make them in 8 different colours to match any rig.

Yes been looking at them , have the fittings got 3 orings, or is it just the way the pic shows them. scrub that just seen it has 3 orings. So its a cross BP and primochill fitting. What tubing you gonna use, Ek.

Actually they have 4 o rings two in the fitting and 2 you put on the tube to clamp down on. They are a very tight fit so I put a little Vaseline on the o ring before pushing the tubes in.

I meant just the compression not the 45 or 90, i like the silver ones. What tubing you using, are you chamfering the edges.

Barrow fittings are great used them for my 45 and 90s in both my builds also use all barrow pass through fittings i got all the last gen fittings in black bags as i ordered mine a while ago now quality is great feel and look like bitspower without the logos on most fittings and when they do have logos not as big as bitspower but seems cost has went up increasingly now so its really up to the person now on brand

Agreed they are top quality fittings but for me it was the fact I could get everything I wanted in the colour I wanted in one place.

Bitspower range for some reason are hard to find in the UK sadsmiley.gif

Opinions please

I intend to complete the pipework this weekend so it will not be long before I fill the system. My problem is I’m not quite sure on what coolant / lighting colour scheme to use. The coolant will consist of a red and white split system.

Problem arises when you light up the reservoirs.

Let me explain, the reservoirs have their own lighting system, red light is behind the red reservoir and white behind the white. Playing with lighting the other day I noticed that the white light was a lot brighter than the red. So if I put white coolant in the red reservoir the light is not going to penetrate or light the fluid hardly at all. It could actually turn it pink looking.
Vis versa if I put red in the white reservoir then the white light is going to make red coolant glow a lot brighter.

So do I put red coolant in the white reservoir and white in the red reservoir and settle for an imbalanced light setup.
Swap the red light for another white light to help balance it up, or white in white and red in red and leave the lighting as it is.

Please comment as I would appreciate any feedback / suggestions.

Thanks

Paul

thats a hard one to call, without filling it up and seeing what it looks like, what about clear fluid, not sure what or how it would look in your system but then you have your res lights to balance it out, its just a thought mind you.
