I'm not sure I want to go with rotary fittings anymore. They seem rather delicate and leak prone after this experience... 2 in 8 doesn't seem like good odds frown.gif

I have been using XSPC rotaries with Primochill fittings for over 2 years now, 1 out of around 16 had a leak
, ive also used them in 3 different builds now (well the most recent is a refresh). It is of course down to luck with QC.











As you can see, I've had plenty of use out of them biggrin.gif

XSPC rotaries, Primochill fittings here, too. These were the first rotary fittings I've used, I wasn't sure what to expect - they seemed sort of loose to me, but the build had zero leaks in any joint. I've never had a leak with a Revolver.

If you use straight angled fittings, would you still be able to orient them in the direction you want them to be during tightening?
post #104484 of 104943
So working on my loop with my new CPU block and going hard tubing finally. I have a question though. I'm going through my midplate coming off of my GPU block and I wanted some input on which route you all think looks the best.

Sorry for the quick and sloppy MS Paint skills. tongue.gif

Option 1




Option 2

This is at the rotary seam just to clarify, and not at the threads. I did a pressure test with a Dr. Drop Gauge from Aquacomputer, but I assumed the .2 psi drop was normal after 24 hours frown.gif

Can I use clear nail polish around the seam to seal the leak? The top rad fitting isn't too bad to replace, it's the reservoir fitting that will require a lot of disassembly.



That sucks. I'm really surprised, Bitspower fittings are top notch, so to get twoin one go is pretty bad. Especially if they are new fittings. I've used them for a while now and have never seen one leak.

Just curious, do you soak them before use? I personally don't even spin them unless they've been soaked for a couple minutes.

So my 10mm bitspower silicon cord is too large for my tubing. Any advice?

not necessarily. I've heard you can use different sized o rings to help but I've never tried that. Almost all of my planned 90s will be connected to passthroughs which i can spin any way id like. I'm also planning on getting more than i need so i have options

I give up. I can't bend tubing at all. Is there a way to preserve a bend you did that is right next to one you are making next to it? Whenever I try to do 2 bends near one another I either destroy my other bend or mess up the one I'm adding by not heating it enough. I might just go fittings at this rate.

I'm no expert but I had the same trouble. What I did was a tiny bit by bit. bent it ever so slightly and let it cool down, checked the other bend and just kept doing that until the bend was finished and both bends were okay. Took a lot of practice until I worked it out.

Thanks for the advice. I'll have to try it later. It's just annoying but I expected as much. 2 1/2 meters of tubing down and I only have 1 tube to show for it. The only reason it worked was because it only needed one 90 degree bend. tongue.gif
