Is the leaking issue generally true for all rotary fittings regardless of brand though?

Pretty much, mine are BitsPower.

That's not good to hear then. I thought it's hard to use angled fittings that are not rotary?

That's why you leak test. Don't worry so much.

Hi there

I would personally go with Barrow fittings, right now I'm using like 45° and 90° fittings and 13/10 compression fittings and no issues to the date,have used too XSPC fittings which are very good fittings and very well priced

I'm using several different fittings like EK, XSPC and Barrow and no issues, have tried Alphacool 45° fittings which started to leak after I tried them and due this I wouldn't consider them

Which are best, depends on budget there,but I'm very impressed with Barrow, if I would use them again, without the question yes

And regarding the tubing,I would consider EK ZMT or Mayhem UV White or their Ultra Clear,just I would stay away from PrimoFlex unless you are planning to replacing the tubing every 2-5months

In yours case maybe DDC pump will be enough as you are not running or will be running several GPU blocks etc


For connecting pump and reservoir I would use this

https://modmymods.com/barrow-g1-4-10mm-male-to-male-adaptor-fitting-silver-tb2d-02-silver.html

And when you will be doing the loop please consider to do or put drain valve in yours loop

Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura

Right. Based on what I'm reading, they recommend to be cautious of putting lateral stress on rotary fittings. Does that mean to always put more slack than normal on the tube when connecting it to a rotary fitting?

I'm liking XSPC fittings for their price. Have you used XSPC rotary fittings as well? How was your experience with them?

 

Why would you say PrimoFlex tubing needs replacement more often? I'm just curious as I'll probably go with the Mayhems Ultraclear tubing anyway for the reason that they're priced better.

 

For the M-to-M fitting, would it be better to get a rotary one so that I can have more movement of either res or pump? I'm also wondering, how do you untighten/tighten the fitting to the two components if it's rotary? Wouldn't it just rotate (not having a tightening/untightening effect) while doing so?

 

I will definitely put a drain valve. Correct me if I'm wrong, that should be in the lowest point of the loop and used with a T-splitter and a ball valve, right?

Hi there

I've not used to the date XSPC rotary compression fittings,only Barrow,Alphacool and Barrow hands down for price they're great fittings and no leaking and no problems with them.

PrimoFlex tubing how to say, have used as well and friend used, which started to yellowing after few months, in my friend loop this tubing has been used for 5 months and his tubing has turned to almost yellow color plus he have problems with leaching as well with their tubing and he is now using like I'm using Mayhem tubing

You can use 10-15mm extension Male to Female extension(they're several versions of them plus there is Anti-Twist version) or this one which I'm using on like radiator and GPU

https://modmymods.com/barrow-g1-4-male-to-female-anti-twist-rotary-adaptor-fitting-black-txyz-a01.html

Yup ball valve will be best there, you will need 2 or 3 way depends on yours plans and loop

Something like this what I've used or done on my loop, there are only used Barrow fittings/parts, G1/4 male to male extension Anti-Twist and Barrow Ball Valve




Hope this helps

I'm not sure if I'm getting you but why would you need that M-to-F fitting if you can buy a rotary M-to-M fitting that would achieve the same? I was just curious how you "screw in" M-to-M rotary fittings to couple two G1/4 watercooling components.

Hi there

This Male to Female is extension which I used mainly on radiator as I'm running fans in push pull configuration, because if you will be using normal 45° fitting you will be unable fit there this fitting alone without the extension, same 45° fitting I'm using on GPU with extension I think I've used only 10 or 15mm which has been enough

Male to Male is good if you are need to fit as in above case with Ball valve or if you want to connect two pumps or pump with reservoir etc

I will do pictures of my loop how it looks later today when I will have bit more time


Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura
