whats up with the EK 90s? Ive had 3 black ones in a row that have slack in the rotary joint. enough to bend. one actually came completely apart. I looked for some replacements from microcenter and they took them off the shelves. I'm forced to use some bitspower >.>

I am terrified to move any EK 90s or 45s that I have as they tend to leak when they move at all. Many leaked right away, I have a little pile of not fit for use EK fittings. The vendor I bought them from has since failed so it is another casualty of fcpu. I would love to trade them out to EK for ones that don't leak but whatever.

ugg... well darn. I don't have any trouble with the 45s or the BIG 90s (45x2) but the 90s are horrible! I wonder if mocrocenter will let me return them without packaging. They are less than a month old I believe.

The freaking bits power ones are 14 USD! Guess its worth it if the don't leak. This rad has unusual pressure on the tubes because I went too thick on my rad and I'm using a caselabs with that side mount bottom rad panel. There's no room back there with the fat rads.

If you can't get EK and have to go BP your better off getting BarroW and going seahorseless.

When I was doing the loop for my TJ07, I had to replace all of my AlphaCool 90's, fortunately I only bought 4 of them, same issue, loose and leaking.
The Bitspower fittings I replaced them with, set me back a hundred bucks with tax and shipping, so it was a costly experience.

The Barrow fittings, if they're good, certainly sound like a cheaper alternative.

For one of these - https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-res-x3-internal-tube-12-16-40mm
I can see it is external thread but nowhere is says what size it is.

I'm pretty sure it is g1/4 because all the xres use g1/4 threads and it says its compatible with them.

G1/4 is common standard across the board. Very few manufacturers still use the G3/8 system. They are out there but G1/4 standard has been around for a few years now and it's universally accepted. thumb.gif

What I've heard about them has been good, and they used to and might still be made by the same manufacturer as Bitspower's fittings.

@wermad is doing a build using a fair amount of them, maybe he can confirm if this is still the case.

I'm using all Barrow matte black compression fitting in my new build and love them! They work and look perfect. I am using EK CSQ rotaries with zero leaking issues.
