buying compression fittings

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. I'm piecing my system together.
Do you guys have any good/inexpensive sources for compression fittings?
My tubing is 1/2"(ID) 3/4"(OD). FrozenCPU.com wants ~$8.50 for each fitting.
That is going cost a ton of money, because I will need 10 or more fittings.
I read up on it a bit and I understand that barbs cost less, but you need to use clamps and such to secure them (I think). Anyways, just wondering if you guys have any advice on this. Thanks

Compression fittings are expensive, but are not required. If your going to be adding them to your loop, do them in pairs. Over the span of the month you buy a few and knock them out. If you wanting to go with something better use these. No spill, no mess. Just good old fun. Expensive, but totally worth it.

Totally huge too. Wish they were 1/3 the size then it would be worth it to use them every where. I was checking out the XSPC ones but they look a little too "stubby." I'm about to order mine some time tonight. Still deciding.

I bought compression fittings and one quick disconnect for easy loop draining. Just need to find the best position to install it. I like compression fittings - that expensive and clean looking loop.

How many fittings are you looking to buy?
Duh! Didn't read it all the way. If you going for more than 10, then the pricing starts to drop on some sites, like Jab-Tech. With Aquatuning, the shipping drops after a certain amount in your cart. I got my EK fittings through Aquatuning.

If you want your parts in a timely manner i would avoid PPS.

Jab-tech has good prices and quick shipping, personally i like the bitzpower and while you can use a cheaper brand 1 leak is going to wipe any potential savings you may have initially made. Dont skimp, the difference in great fittings and cheap ones is only about $40 across the entire system, what really costs is if you end up needing angles, snakes and other exotic pieces.
