Which to choose between? EK ACF vs XSPC V2 Compression Fittings

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So putting my new system under water and would like recommendations on which fittings to go with. I am having a difficult time deciding between the two. I've used the XSPC ones in the past with no problems so I'm sort of leaning towards those since I have experience with them. If it helps I will be going with the black nickel / chrome colors.

I think they are both good, so use the ones you prefer the looks of.

Monsoon or Bitspower are also great choices.

imo the EK fittings look waaaaaaay better than the XSPC. There is probably no performance or quality difference, but EK fittings are really pleasing to the eye.
