Thermaltake pacific rgb fittings hard to fit

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've decided to make a new build, now with hard tubes ('ve never use petg tubes before) and also go rgb on it. So I've bought few packs of thermaltake pacific rgb fittings and few packs of 12id 16od ekwb petg tubes. The first problem was ekwb tubes, I just cant make them fit the fittings frown.gif ok, i've ordered thermaltake pacific petg tubes - with almost the same result - I can hardly fit the tube on the fitting but it pushes out the second oring from it. Is it normal? Should I preheat the tube to make it fit the fitting? I've tried to google for it but the only info I've found is how to bend petg tubes with a heatgun etc

Are you sure the Outer and Inner dimensions of the fittings correspond to the tubing?

You need to chamfer the ends of the tubing so it doesn't damage and move the internal orings.

Heating hard tube, especially PETG, is not a good idea because it will let the fitting change the shape of the tubing and possibly not seal properly.

If the tubing doesn't fit the fittings after chamfering then you need to send it back because its out of size. There is always some variation.

Chamfering haven't helped frown.gif the best thing is that I can fit one tube from 8 (2x4 packages) lol thermaltake :/

Next best thing is the answer from their support:
"The tubing you have is the hard tubing and should fit the LED Fittings."
Damn I'v got three packs of fittings, that was pretty expensive :/ any ideas which tubes to check now?

I just finished using these. Yes, the fittings are a very tight fit, but push and twist a bit hard enough and you'll feel the tube slide past the two o-rings... About a half inch in.

Also, the lighting effects are awesome
