Well thought i would set a poll to find out what you all thought was best type of connections to use for your watercooling kits.

There seams to be a large market for types from metal to plastic, screw connection to push connection.

Hopefully this will help alot of people trying to find out what are good, plus help me know

Well, I would say that barb fittings are going to give you the best flow

The "T"'s are connectors and the ball valves would only be used in specific configurations....Just for general use the barbs for 1/2"....The smaller tubing would benefit with compression fittings so they would get more flow....
