Has anyone found this to be the case also with Mayhem? Or are there any brands of fittings I should go with that fit well and are reliable?

QQ regarding fittings - With regards to not mixing metals... I'm looking at getting this XSPC block. It's copper and the rad I'm looking at is also copper... the BLACK ICE NEMESIS RADIATOR GTS 240 XFLOW. I see a lot of compression fittings are brass/chrome... are these considered to be ok to use?

Thanks again!
Oh....if you want to have some real fun with compression fittings not fitting, get yourself some ZMT! The OD is always totally out of spec.

Brass, chrome and nickel are no issue mixed in a loop with copper. The galvanic reaction between them is essentially non-existent in our lifetimes.

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

Hi there

For tubing and some parts I'm using Overclockers, I have used with Mayhems tubing like EK, XSPC and Barrow or Bykski fittings and no issues

With EK ZMT have used like Barrow and Bykski fittings,which do work with this tubing just as @ciarlatano said its not very fun to close fittings,because tubing is not consistent as other tubings,bought two different EK ZMT tubings, one have been pretty good, closing fittings not been so bad, still not good as with EPDM or Mayhems Clear tubing etc,second tubing which have been nightmare to use as I couldn't close some fittings and swapped tubing later for EPDM

Using EK ZMT with XSPC fittings,tried and failed miserably on this

Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura

Agreed on that there with EK ZMT

Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura

I have used LRT advanced since it came out, but Mayhem's has not tested it with their newest nuke products from what I was able to find so I purchased some EK Duraclear. I find it easier to work with than LRT but not as clear in appearance. Somewhere between LRT and Tygon if that makes sense. How does the Mayhem's tubing compare?

It's been ages since i used duraclear and they may have changed it since then but mayhem's is even easier to work with from what I remember.
