Do you mean the kind you just push the tubing into? We find them at most hardware stores.

The fans on my core can't be heard over the power supply fan.

fstfrddy - wow! thats fantastic using a stinger kit? I'll have to look into them in more depth.

as to the connectors, these are some on the thermaltake symphony:
Automatic non-spill valves, robust material one hand operation
http://www.thermaltake.com/product/L...0_image/08.jpg
whole page:
http://www.thermaltake.com/product/L...0/cl-w0040.asp
and on zalmans reserator 1 plus:
The Fittings incorporate valves that prevent leaks when disconnecting the Silicone Tubes allowing quick, convenient separation and reassembly of the Reserator for transport and coolant replacement .
http://www.zalman.co.kr/images/produ...erator_07s.jpg
the whole page can be found on zalmans website:
http://www.zalman.co.kr/

so I was wondering whether this is standard for all those pretty chrome fittings you push the pipe over, or, if they were stuff these guys made to make their systems actually transportable? and if anywhere was marketing them seperately as i can think of several places they'd be useful

For what it's worth, I agree with Freddy--a good pump should be able to handle a single loop.

More importantly for my personal priority of silence, pumps tend to be louder than fans, and more fans are actually quieter than less.

It's counterintuitive, but happens because a fan's noise level increases faster than it's airflow. So multiple fans (and the larger the better) running slowly are quieter than a single fan supplying the same airflow.

Combined with the fact that the more radiator area the less need for airflow, more radiator and more fans is actually quieter than less radiator and fans, and offer the option for more cooling when needed.

That said, of course take your own path. It's not all about reason, and the journey is its own reward.

Hope this helps.

His last name is Stinger. He made his own series of CPU blocks. One of which I own. Handmade quality like you wouldn't believe. Read the Homemade Waterblock stickie by fstfrddy if you want to research the Stinger line more.

my bad, i'd heard the name stinger on a couple of posts, and stupidly leapt to the wrong conclusion. I could probably find a small custom manufacturing company to build something like it, if I was a rich man...

I do remember something about the fact that multiple sources making the same noise doesnt double the noise (as the uninitiated would think) it brings it to about 1.4 times noisier, and the larger airflow, larger fans, larger radiator makes sense DrDeville, it also applies to passive cooling which uses convection and ambient air movement (if i can use the term ambient in that way .

I must say, its damn tempting to go for a regular radiator + fan arrangement (tried, true and lots less work finding and implementing) but if we all went for such things, we'd be running stock clocked cpus and bland video cards, so my own path it shall be!

I think thats your best bet, get some quality fans, I just got a couple of Antec Tri Cool for my case, they have a 3 speed switch and on low are real quiet. And the Thermaltake smart fans on the core are also quiet. The next thing I am changing is the PSU fan.
