Cpu block and tube fitting problem

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ok so here is my dilemma, I have an alphacool yellowston B/B/B block. Here is a link for more details:

Anyway....

I have 1/2ID and 3/4OD tubing and it seems that no matter what kind of fitting i use (barb or compression) there is not enough room for the tubing. They sit too tight together. The best thing I have found is using my 45deg fitting and a normal barb. but the problem lays then with the clamp. I cant even fit a clamp around it, that is how tight it is next to the compression fiting. Should I take a risk of not using a clamp? or would a 2" ziptie be alright.


Thanks,
Oni~~

yeah ziptie does the same thing as a clamp..

you can also try adding some spacers so you have more room

So it's the compression fittings that won't allow enough room for tubing, or two normal fittings/barbs?

picture this (ill actually get you a picture later) but:

take your tubing (3/4"OD) and put them side by side (no space between them) and look at the holes.... the space between the threads on the block are actually closer together than those holes. so putting two reg barbs on there and then the tubing still wont work i have to force them down...literally, and they wont even go on all the way. but with one 45deg comp fitting and a single straight barb it kinda works, just barely because i dont have enought room between the screw part of the compression fitting and the tubing to put any sort of clamp.

Edit:
This link will give you guys trying to help some insight a little to my problem:

Edit again:
