Why spend loads of money on those two black compression fittings when you could use plastic barbs and a worm drive...

because plastic barbs are not cool. and worm clamps are also not cool and unsightly

but I supposed that is also the reason why someone would spend 40$ on the EK adapters and bridge

Because it looks awesome, it's quieter than air cooling, it provides better temperatures, and it's another DIY project that adds value to your rig.

my old setup


Im gonna do the same on the HAF X next week.
Im using 1/2x3/4 tube and compression fittings, the fittings did not fit on the blocks, too wide. Believe me, had I been using something smaller, say 7/16x5/8 and the compression fittings cleared the pcb, I would have gone that route. Plus, its more bling . I say, do what ever your heart desires. I love the way the ek bridge block works, its supa sexy

i guess also the reason why some people use that huge sli block for their loop then to spend the money.

i wasnt actually objecting to watercooling. it's freakin awesome.

just throwin in a joke
post #4849 of 106060
yeah, the sli block was pretty pricey, all together w/ the three links and a blank, was ~$70usd . Still, I ask the same thing way when people spend $15 on ONE bitspower fitting when you can add cheap barbs . Like I said, do what ever you want, its your money, and really, one should be looking to impress themselves first, everyone else comes later
post #4850 of 106060
I got the triple card connector because it was $15 and made it so I only needed two compression fittings instead of six.

Also, mine is WAY simpler. It has two screws and an o-ring for each card. None of those smaller blocks.
