3/8, 1/2 is great since it cuts out the need for rotaries in nearly all situations. The flowrate also isn't that much lower so to hinder performance. Rotaries are absurdly priced for seemingly no reason. Hopefully swiftech will get theirs released soon so to lower them overall.

They should be fine. Just do some routine checks if you have any reservations. Most of the nickel plating done by most companies is pretty sturdy to last for a while.

What do you recommend for compression fittings then? I have the 7/16 tubing.

Not even a contest. Compressions although a bit more spensive are better. Cleaner looking unless your cuts are so perfect(some WC'ers have laser precision cuts) but for the most part Compressions are leak free. 1st timers should go with compression fittings imho being a first timer and having both in my setup. Just make sure to have rubber finger cots on hand. Makes loosening and tightening these things much better when you have some grip. smile.gif

~Ceadder smil3dbd4e4c2e742.gif

FrozenCPU sells them in sets of 6 for $36, which is $6 a pop. Not a bad deal if you ask me.

Problem for me is that Frozen jacks up their shipping cost to make it up on the back end. So it's Performance-PCs' who charge a tad more $39 for 1/2 x 3/4. In either case it's gonna be half dozen of one or half dozen of the other in my shorts so they're still more spendy than EK fittings which imho look stunning. Would like Monsoons but can't see paying more than what I have on fittings. EK were proven fittings(based on the amount of owners when I first started) so I went with them over the cheaper XSPC, Phobya fittings. I only have one XSPC fitting and that's the one from my Res to Pump connection. But honestly had PPCs' had all the EK fittings(i.e. 90s', 45s' and adapter fittings) I probably woulda went all EK. Sometimes you just get stuck having to use another manufacturer's fittings. smile.gif

Would LOVE to have Monsoons though cause they're hella sharp looking. Hell I'm the guy that alerted everyone here to them back when they first came out. I was seriously impressed with how clean and well thought out they are. thumb.gif

I'm just trying to determine a smooth solution for mine... but they all seem like it'll turn out ugly. Thinking about just skipping the drain again and just making the pretty loop unless someone has the clean solution for me hidden in their case tongue.gif
WC Rig owners have various strategies for draining.

I didn't want a inline-T in my rig at all, but using Radiator's another G1/4 plug look like this

600 for drain.

no need a inline-"T" for me.. biggrin.gif

You'll want your drain at the lowest point in your loop. Is that where you plan to mount your radiator to avoid the T? thinking.gif

~Ceadder smil3dbd4e4c2e742.gif
Ceadderman, I would mount a rad in front. whenever I surely put it in bathtub, unmount it from front for drain quickly & access easy. I don't have Multi-tubes in WC HAF X, then not need the "T". biggrin.gif

Really depends on how much you want to spend. If you are on a budget, xspc is a good choice as well a few other brands. If you can spend a bit more, Monsoons are uber popular right now so that would be my choice thumb.gif

Ahh. Well I am on budget right now so I can upgrade my CPU & Mobo. But in the next couple months, I'll probably upgrade if the compression fitting starts to fail on me.

Now I can't wait to assemble my loop! biggrin.gif

Thanks!

I know xspc has good customer service. If the fittings fail for some reason, they can replacement for you. I'm sure they will perform great thumb.gif
