Compression Elbow

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Is that what is pictured here?

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11...R2CPF-CC2.html

I want to buy like 2-6 of them for my dual GTX580/CPU cooling just in case something doesn't want to bend properly. Is this what connects directly to the G1/4" slot and then to the 3/8" tubing?

Yeah, G1/4 to 3/8" ID, 1/2" OD. Both ID and OD are important when buying compressions.

Personally, I'd go with 1/2" ID and 3/4" OD.

Why do you say that?

Are you sure the fittings will fit?

^^^this.

I personally Use 3/8" ID, 5/8" OD which would not work with those.

Whereas only ID is important for barb fittings, both ID and OD are important for compression fittings.

This was to be my build:

Swiftech MCP35x
EK-Multioption RES X2 - 250 Basic
XSPC RX480
EK-Supreme HF (N&A)
EK-FC580 (N&A)
EK-FC580 Backplate (Black)
EK-FC Dual Parallel
EK-FC Link GeForce
Bitspower Ultimate G1/4" Thread 3/8" ID x 1/2" OD Compression (Black)
Bitspower G1/4" Thread Dual Rotary 45-Degree Elbow (Black)
Bitspower G1/4" Thread Low Profile Stop Plug (Black)
Tygon Silver Antimicrobial 3/8" ID x 1/2" OD (15FT)
IandH Silver Antimicrobial 99.999%

Would the 1/2" ID and the 3/4" OD fittings work with those blocks? I don't want to get all the equipment and then end up having them not screw in next to each other.

Isn't it if you get 3/8" ID and 1/2" OD tubing you get the exact same compression fitting?
