So what happens now? You have to send back yours and they'll send a good one?

I don't know just yet that's what im waiting to find out... I got this feeling its going to be some big long drawn out process... I will keep everyone updated b/c i know there are some new people on here that just bought this kit and might get a bad one also. They just haven't got it in from shipping yet.

I may not need to connect all of these to a separate controller but definitely want to control the rad fans. Analog dials, sliders, and touch screen seem to be my choices. My case has a black/red theme so I'd like to avoid the blue LED's prevalent in most controllers but I'll live with it for quality/price.
So I'm looking for recommendations, links, and pics!
Lamptron FC8 lets you change the LED colors. No visual readouts, though.

I personally like the Lamptron FC9, can't wait to get one myself. Only 4 channels but with 50 watts per channel the possibilities are endless. Ability to change colors is just a bonus.

how do you guys tighten the stock fittings so that they don't come lose?? I noticed when the hoses are attached and I try to move them a bit the stiffness of the hose itself moves and loosens and unscrews the fittings. eek.gif

Are you guys using teflon tape or some silicon sealant on the barbs? teflon just seems messy and sealant would make it close presently, so how are you doing it? just tightening it with your fingers or applying some torque with a wrench or pliers or something? if it starts unscrewing itself because of the tubes then its a bit worrying for me since it might cause a water spill.

Besides the one fitting on my res that I mentioned was sealed with silicon, I just tightened then with a plier and they're fine. Make sure to tighten them before putting on the tubes though.

A wrench probably would have worked better as the pliers scuffed up the barbs but you can't really see it anyways.

Thanks, Reps + thumb.gif
I have a small adjustable wrench that should fit, if it does then I will give it a bit torque(not too tight tho right?) or maybe I'll just use my pliers covered with some clothing to protect the shiny finishing on the barbs biggrin.gif

So what's the general agreement? Is primochill tubing still best? I have some and I want to redo my loop in my RS240 kit. Thus, I need to buy more. The current primochill tubing I used looks cloudy. I was going to get Tygon but now I'm not sure which brand tubing to get. I want 1/2"iD and 3/4"OD still but I want the tubing to fit well with my BP compression fittings too. This primochill tubing is really hard to fit into the compression fittings. Any suggestions?

I haven't had any problems with Masterkleer and as far as I know, Tygon is the best for tubing. Most clear or translucent/colored tubing will eventually cloud and even solid ones, so there isn't much you can do to avoid it aside from getting plasticizer-free tubing. I just recently bought the XSPC compression fittings and they work perfectly on 1/2" ID 3/4" OD tubing.

I will be rearranging my set up and I wanted to add another 120mm rad to where I have the exhaust fan. Would I be able to safely do it without putting too much stress on the pump? This is my set up... RX360 rad up top.
