Best 90 Degree Fittings - Page 4

post #31 of 35
There's no difference between the black sparkle, diamond, true silver, silver and true gold fittings in terms of performance. It's about cosmetic appeal, and this shows how smart BP is when it comes to marketing.

Thanks! That's what I figured. People kept saying to go with the sparkles and I couldn't see any difference so I was waiting for some actual performance differences. Glad to save 15 bucks and get what are in my opinion better looking fittings

sorry for bumping an old thread, but what do you guys think of these fittings:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/15179/ex-tub-1171/Alphacool_G14_90_Low_Profile_Fitting_Adapter_-_Deep_Black.html?tl=g30c101s1306

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10376/ex-tub-629/Bitspower_G14_Thread_90-Degree_Rotary_Adapter_-_Matte_Black_BP-MB90R.html?tl=g30c101s1306


I purchased different model blocks for my R9 290s, thinking the holes would line up, but they don't. I have a maximum of ~45mm of space between the two ports.

So I was thinking of using 90 degree fittings and 1m or so of tubing to use the new block.

I was thinking of using the first one, but the review is worrying me. "The only problem is that these are too low profile to fit my XSPC low profile 7/16" 5/8" fittings on them and still fit on the water blocks and radiators. "

What does that mean? I just have regular Feser 3/8 5/8 compression fittings. Also since it's non rotary, how will I ultimately decide which direction it will end up in? Do I just loosen a bit to make it point in the direction I want?

Not sure about clearance, but with regards to rotaries.
go with the third link you posted.

Those have the ability to rotate.

Without having read through the entire thread. I can vouch for the Bitspower triple rotary fittings. BP has the widest selection of fittings and extensions for just about any setup. All of mine are matte black. There was another thread discussion mixed metals with some fittings by some manufactures as having low quality plating.

I went with the matte black as just from my experience with it it's strictly black paint over brass. No problems whatsoever. The only deviation from the BP are my QD4s from Koolance, which are very high quality.
