I personally don't like compression fittings, both in looks or the cost you have to pay out for them, I also don't see a advantage to running them.

I run something like this, http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=25625

I buy them at my local hardware store and they are $0.24 a piece, and of they don't have the brand on them which is nice.
Hmm they look pretty good but wot sizes would i need for 7/16" ID - 5/8" OD hose?

would 18.25-23.25mm ID be tight?

that is just what they are for, you will have to compress the clamp in order to get it over the tubing

have ready a small needle nose pliers. It comes in handy to undo the clamps and occasional closing of the clamp.

I've tried the Koolance one's but they now have an open end as opposed to the close end ones which are far easier to compress.

I'm quite happy with compression though

Hey kevin, please add me to the list. Plenty more pics in the thread.

Also note my Dual Input/Dual Output GPU loop setup.

It's excellent. I am really glad I came up with the idea because this way my GPU temps are identical and not like most usually set it up where one card passes water onto the other after it has already heated up. It's basically like two dedicated mini-loops in one big loop. And that's just the GPUs. I was gonna do the same with the CPU motherboard but aesthically it wouldn't be as pleasing and the added cost/complexity made it not worth the few degrees lower on the motherboard. My GPUs are loving it however.
