If you're using compression fittings in your system, what are you using?

I'm deciding between bitspower 1/2" ID and say, the monsoon compression fittings (which look super neat [but that goes for most compression fittings tongue.gif ]).

Go for the Monsoons. They're slightly cheaper and not nearly as wide as BP fittings. BP fittings are awesome but they make it harder to route your tubing and on some blocks are near impossible to get two of them on the block without an angle fitting.

I've got EK fittings. That's about the only thing they make anymore that is good. cool.gif

@ Capacity issue... System will probably hold more if I install another 360 and GPU blocks. wink.gif lol

This. They can be a real pain sometimes. Also when using two standard fittings on a rad, I've had issues where they interfere with the fan and being able to mount it flush on the radiator, even to the point where I had to take my Dremel and carve into the fans a little to fit around the BP fittings.

Ah, thanks! Also, would it be okay to have a 90 degree fitting adapter+male-male coupler into a shut-off valve in the side of this (Click to show)
reservoir and have the system running through the top of the res instead of filling the pump up from the side (by filling I mean the return tube from the second set of radiators).

I'm wondering because it would be much easier for me to have the loop return running through the top of the case, but I'll have to draw up a diagram.

I really didn't have any issues tubing up with my Bitspower Comp fittings honestly. I used a number of angled fittings but that was more for aesthetics than anything else. Granted I haven't leak-tested yet so their performance is still to be determined but the looks and ease of use so far have been exemplary...

I think I know what you're saying but it would be better with a diagram. As far as a shutoff valve that should/would be fine but you'll want to cap it with a plug to make sure no fluid escapes the loop. smile.gif

I just had issues with a standard straight 1/2" fitting on a radiator and then mounting the fan next to the fittings, but these fixed that issue. No real "tubing up" issues.

2)I heard nickel and silver have problems co-existing in a loop?Is it true or it was just ek's cr@p?
In this case I will go with cpu only loop because it is small.If I want to watercool my gpu too I'll use my testbench(in progress) or my old haf 932 (currently in a bad shape)
Thanks

1) A 240 for CPU, GPU and mosfets should be fine.

2) It was EK's fault...I don't know the entire story but I believe it had something to do with sub-standard plating
