Same ones that came free with Danger Den tubing. I used them a couple of times on loops with components that were only in for benchmarking. They work, but are a bit infuriating to use as they either pop open or are a royal pain to get off. They also aren't exactly stealth on the tube.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

+1 on switching to ASUS mobo. I've used ROG boards for a decade and they're always great. Currently on a IX Code.

As for res/pump combo: I will always recommend Monsoon MMRS. It's a modular system so kind of like DIY combo but it's amazing. You pick a res length and color, tension rod color, top cap of your choice, a bottom cap made specifically for a pump and then a pump cover to hide the pump. There are also a couple of different mounts you can grab in various colors. And lighting options for behind and inside the res if you're into that,.

If you check my build log and scroll down a big to the original log you'll see a few pics of the type of combos available (there are more colors than just black chrome and red though): https://www.overclock.net/forum/61-w...og-update.html

Performance-PCs should have everything. If you have Qs feel free to PM.

My personal favorite fittings for 3/8" ID tube.

Not a fan of the big knurled knob on compression fittings and these give a nice snug fit without clamps.

Of course not for hardline use.

Your company is horrible. EKWB really needs to check what they are selling and there stock.

The compression fittings you sell do not work with tubing you sell. The rubber is too soft and can be compressed and manipulated out even with the compression nut fully down.

Do you have contact info with someone in the company I could review these concerns with?

The products your company is selling would be illegal if they where made for home plumbing. You guys should really consider researching housing code. This isnt something new and definetly could have been prevented with a little forsight and testing.

Sorry I missed the previous notifications.

This is the first time I've heard of anyone having issues with the tubing and fittings not working together. I apologize for the frustrations you've had with it, but you're welcome to speak to our support team and they'll be happy to help sort this out.
