Some stuff came in.
^^^Yes, those are XSPC compression fittings. Thought I give them a try as they're not that expensive. Different approach but it seems practical. Obviously, there's no grip on the bottom base but they did notch a slash on the barb portion and
the bottom g1/4 threaded part. The latter is most likely to help remove a fitting on a piece of tube (not threaded to a g1/4 port), which can happen some times. The notch above is for installation purposes. A simple penny ($0.01 USD) easily fits and can rotate it to get it on or off. I think this will be much better than the traditional gripping of the bottom piece of a compression fitting. I've seen these notches on some other fittings. I do love the Monsoons but I couldn't really see myslef spending a lot of money on the fittings. Most of the money was spent on the gpu(s) so I had to plan the other parts carefully.
B-Negative, no need to update my post. Just sharing my incoming parts
