Feel free to give me tips on future tubing runs or bends.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Hi, I am doing exactly same thing at the moment.Barrow fittings, 14mm PETG tubing from XSPC and from Barrows. Barrows tubing looks much better, noticeably clearer than XSPC, you can't see the lines inside the tube and is easier to work with. I am using Barrow silicone insert and it seems like XSPC tubes are a tad bigger inside, the silicone insert goes in easier than into Barrow and is more loose( that's probably the reason why bends look better on Barrow tubing). I'll try to get some decent pictures for comparison tomorrow.
How these Barrow fittings seal that XSPC tubing, any issues, leaks?
