I was looking around at jab-tech last night for loop components and I think the most expensive part of going water for me is going to be all the Bitspower Dual Rotary fittings. I've seen a build where a guy used those in excess and limited the amount of tubing he needed. It made for a really clean and professional look which I'm really a fan of. But at $11-14 a piece, my wants don't come cheap.
Well idk but this just comes into mind, I can see where you'd be adding 2 possible leak sources for each joint used...... but what if you didn't use plastic joints? I know this probably sounds a bit redneck but It sorta just popped in my head looking at that joint..... Why not just use pre-sized 1/8" or w/e size you wanna use aluminum or copper tubing? I'm not too familiar with watercooling setups but I know from a mechanical aspect, some thread lock paste/gel or thread tape can normally do its job against quite a bit of pressure (And I'm talking like serious pressure, like automotive level pressure). Not to mention if done the right way, you could get possibly cut down your temps I'd assume as well just by having aluminum/copper tubing instead of heat containing plastic.

If your having a hard time picturing what I'm speaking of, think of the piece of piping that connects the two or more video card waterblocks when in SLI/Tri-SLI/Quad. A straight feed to the next object seems more logical then a bending/hanging piece of plastic tubing.

Idk, like I said it sounded redneck and no matter what way I would have worded it that would be the best way to describe it but I have a gut feeling that is telling me if you could find a way to make that kinda straight-pipe setup work you'd have a pretty amazing loop and not to mention probably some better temps since I feel metal dissipates heat better then plastic.

Just a random spurt of my crazy thought process, who knows maybe I'll try it myself eventually. Do me a favor and don't flame on my possible redneck stupidity Thx

Then again maybe I'm just crazy

The bitpower fittings are made out of brass not plastic.

And you're right any kind of bending of tubing or fitting is going to create some kind of pressure drop which will reduce your flow rate. As long as your (bending Radius)/(inner diameter) is decently large (around 3) you won't get too much of a pressure drop. 45 degree fittings aren't too bad, avoid 90's at all cost. Most fittings are pretty idiot proof, as long as you don't over-torque or leave them loose they won't leak.

BTW, I'm a fluid systems engineer. I don't know much about water-cooling setups though. What kind of pressure and flow rates do people typically run at?

It all depends... some people like really fast rates, others like to slow it down a bit so that the fluid has time to take up the heat, and the rest just don't know and slap stuff together and watch the temps drop by some or a lot lol.

Ok ok! So I won't go all crazy with my dual rotary fittings, it seems like enough of you are saying no, and I know better than to go against the tide in here.

Ok given that fact that my replacment "Step up" board Meh.. looks like it fell off the truck and caught an edge like the tip of a football would to grass and ended up 50 yards down the road in a zig-zag motion...

I was wrong this thing clocks much much different.

I have a slew of photos of this latest and greatest craziness. Classified Taco anyone?

oh im not done yet just saw your re-post


i can only do one quick sentence at a time before this crap locks up "Stock"
i have to throw my proc in my E758 in a bit. I'm making my bug log.



flippin chimps

i thought i was talkin with andy

I'm so confused...

You're having troubles with the new Classified board?
