Hi,
You can get a couple mayhem X1 clear 1000ml bottles of premix about 20.us a piece though out of stock though also out of concentrate :/
http://www.performance-pcs.com/featu...ter-clear.html

I'd just use mayhems biocide and Inhibitor use local bought distiller water
http://www.performance-pcs.com/water...itor-15ml.html

Out of biocide of course think I saw some on amazon though either way you get a lot more product with these two than the premix

Don't use the Alphacool 90s, they are poorly made and prone to leaks. Get Bitspower 90s from Performance PCs.

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

Hi,
All rotaries are prone to leak but yeah I started out with bitspower until I saw prices think the budget is officially blown have to see all in cart to know by how much :/
Search is a little better than yesterday for some reason think it was the price gougers on amazon for bitspower fitting was the issue and PPC was mostly out of stock

21.us a pop you may only need 2 on the pump and maybe 1 elsewhere rest can be straight barbs 3/8-5/8" soft hose bends nicely
http://www.performance-pcs.com/bitsp...od-5-8-v3.html

12 of these 13.us a pop
http://www.performance-pcs.com/bitsp...-8-od-5-8.html

Shut off valve
http://www.performance-pcs.com/fitti...-extender.html

T block for the bottom front rad for shutoff valve/ drain
https://www.amazon.com/Bitspower-T-B...F5DZDJ402TZAF0

Doubt microCenter will have anything but EK fluid STAY FAR AWAY FROM IT !!!!

Amazon or Newegg probably has mayhem X1 clear premix

Modmymods has a good deal on it on amazon

Water cooling is not a financially responsible hobby.

That said, you can spend quite a bit less on fittings. Barbs with hose clamps is usually the cheapest but doesn't look as nice. For straight fittings, you can get by with cheaper compression fittings. If you find a spot where you absolutely need a rotary fitting, I would spend a bit more for quality rotaries.

Think about the people that have multiple rads, pumps, and reservoirs. Not to mention dual GPUs.

Now someone tells me Glad I'm not married, probably be looking at a divorce by now.

And don't put them in a bind or they will leak even if they are new. Of course, this is more of a threat with hard tubing but if you have a line pushing or pulling on a rotary the pressure will cause it to leak.

You could go with Barrow fittings. Same quality as bitspower without the tax for being name brand.

This. I had made the same recommendation to you initially. You would only be in for about $40 in fittings and they are better quality than the Alphacool you are looking at. Stick with Bitspower rotaries, but you should only need a few. Forget that silly flow wheel, you can see as much by looking at your res.

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