My concern would be looks, but as long as it doesn't show I guess it doesn't matter.

ive got the same block, only the copper one, and im using a 90* barb. I was using normal barbs with tierips to secure the 1/2id tubing, but i couldnt secure them with any other thing. Now i can use clamps on both of the barbs. Your way is the nicer way, but im not really concerned about that, looks pretty good this way.

I have plain barbs that i could just use with hose clamps, but i really don't want to have to do that.

EPIC parts. Tho I think a rotary fitting would have been a better choice for the HK< because what if that non rotary 45 doesnt end up in the right direction?

Teflon tape is not needed, you have o-rings on your compression fittings. Trust me Just make sure you screw in the compressions tight enough. Use a spanner to tighten them enough, i did. just make sure you don't do them too tight into acrylic. I cracked my Bitspower T-block by tightening up the fittings too much.

what type of spanner should i use? I don't want to scratch off the matte black finish, be cause it is really thin.

also, the threads in the acrylic res top are REALLY tight. is that normal?

oh, and ygpm. ;-)

Ygpm back!

I used an adjustable spanner, just make sure the spanner fits snug on it and it shouldn't scratch.

The threads shouldn't be really tight, no. You appear to have them in already though, so as long as nothing has cracked around the hole then you should be fine.
