Compression Elbow - Page 2

post #11 of 39
You can go with 3/8" ID, 1/2" OD if you want, it's just personal preference, I think a thinker tube looks better. It could possible increase flow too as the inside of the tubing is bigger.

Everything you have there fits and works though, go for it.

EDIT: Yeah, if you get my preferred tubing size you would have to get other compressions, but I'd just stick with what you have, hell, I haven't even got my WC'ing stuff yet! It's still in the mail.

Haha, it's about damn time!

So could anyone clarify if the 1/2" ID and 3/4" OD compression fittings will fit on the equipment I listed above? I just remember reading how if you go fatter you need to be careful of the fittings not fitting next to each other. I believe that was in the case of the dual-GPU setup. I could be wrong though?

Anyone? frown.gif

Oh I haven't bought anything yet, so getting other compressions isn't a worry.

My concern is if the 1/2" ID x 3/4" OD compression fittings will fit NEXT to each other when I start putting it together. I will buy the right fittings and tubings, but will they fit next to each other?

Just go ahead with what you already have, sorry about the confusion. The thicker tubing will not fit on (or in, rather) those compression fittings, your tubing will however. Don't worry, your cart is fine, I can't see any problems. Also, yes, compressions can hit if they're too big. You're correct.

I don't think 1/2", 3/4" do fit on a EK HF, stick with yours.

Haha. Oh frost, I've got you all worried now tongue.gif. See, the reason I am considering what you said is two-fold:

1) I prefer thicker tubing myself as well.
2) FrozenCPU is completely out of the 3/8" x 1/2" fittings.

Therefore, I really like what you are saying. I just don't know whether or not they will hit because I don't know if they're too big.

Maybe someone knows with my build? Ignore the 3/8" sizes and replace it with 1/2" ID and 3/4" OD. Sorry...I really should know this myself but it's my first build frown.gif

Not a problem on the EK-Supreme HF/EK-FC580 and definitely not a problem on any of the EK-FC Bridges..
Tygon tubing (1/2 ID 34/ OD) on a pair of Bitspower (1/2 ID 34/ OD) rotary compression fittings....

Yeah, I think they actually revised the EK Supreme HF with holes further apart so it could fit 1/2", 3/4"'s.

Those compressions on your 580 look like they're on risers, can you confirm/deny?

Rotary compressions.

That's perfect. Thanks so much for posting that.

If in the rare case (and just my luck) the fittings DON'T fit next to each other, could I return them to FrozenCPU? I'm paying about $200 right now for the Bitspower fittings/elbows alone =/
post #20 of 39
Oh, true.

I forgot those even existed, what exactly are the advantages to those?

EDIT: They should fit, there only looks to be a few mm gap between though, so it'll be a tight fit. If for some reason they don't fit, I'd e-mail FrozenCPU and ask them for the revised version of the EK Supreme HF which they should have sold you. Would probably be cheaper.

EDIT EDIT: What colour tubing do you want?

I'll recommend you some and link you to it and some fittings.
