Thermaltake hard pipe fittings questions

So I got thermaltake 16od compression fittings the pipe just pushes in. Little concerned about that. There fairly tight but I expected them to be some form of method to tighten them down. Any one with any experience with these

This is just a friendly suggestion..stay away from TT, especially watercooling gear, unless you want to ruin your PC, their parts are cheap and if anything goes wrong, which high possibility down the road it will, don't bother trying to get their help, you on your won and probably to blame for whatever you dealing with.

Invest in better quality components by company that will stand behind their product e.g. Bitspower, Heatkiller, Aquacomputer, XSPC, Swifteh even EK will be better than TT

So why?


The water cooling parts I can see, but I have 2 TT cases an X5 and a ComanderC34 that I'm currently building a system in. I also have several fans that I use for airflow that are as quiet as my Noctua fans I have for static pressure (my computer sits 2 1/2' away from me), the Noctua fans run full speed 24/7 and a few of my TT fans have been in service for some time now. I also own 2 of their Commander fan controllers. All of the stuff seems to be of decent quality, I've never had any issues with the products that I have used.

TT is well knowing to blame their customers for their manufacturers defects. Also, their watercooling components are made with tolerance that is all over the place, one out of few fittings are different size and that goes for tubing and even O-rings, they also use low grade material for their components.

If you only looking at the view of their products, some might even look nice, but that is deceiving.

I will give you one example, but I'm sure there is a ton of other people that were facing similar dilemma..My nephew got some TT gear and he is very careful and meticulous about how he installs things, he's been watrecooling for few years with good results and I try to talk him out of getting TT, he didn't listen so he paid dearly.

New system that was few days old and his CPU block started leaking TT send him replacement after 3 weeks of dragging it out of them, strike 1..

The very next day that replacement leaked and shorted his M/B, what was worse, he only knew that after fact, the replacement wasn't new, when he opened the block, It had burned micro channel and they blamed him for pretty much everything they could.

He latterly took all TT parts and tossed into the garbage and said never ever, ever TT, you can't trust them, but I'm sure sooner or later anyone who uses TT faces some sort of nonsense.

Person asked about hard (rigid tubing) so its watercool related, but tbh. after seen and hearing about TT I wouldn't give them second of my time and neither would by anything of theirs.

You should try Bitspowers 16mmOD Enhanced Multi link fittings and their tubing's, you would be amazed how tight and firm they fit and every single fitting and tube is exactly the same size, BP might have the tightest most accurate tolerance.

If installed properly, never ever leak and If you have issue, even after warranty, they have super customer support that will work hard to please you.

FWIW, I do more than just look at the view of a companies products. EKs stuff looks nice too but they had (have?) issues with their plating flaking off, that's why when I got into water cooling a PC I avoided their blocks, and TBH I'm still a little nervous about that whole subject and will be monitoring it closely when I get my EK monoblock installed on this new build. But I do more than shop for the pretty parts, I read reviews, read forums, and ask questions like the one I posed to your post


Like I said in my post, when it comes to water cooling parts I can see staying away from TT, they've come to the WC scene late in the game and that particular product line has a lot of negative reviews out there, as well as water block and coolant product companies of this hobby (whos primary focus is WC) post warnings about incompatibilities with TT rads. Your post that I quoted though was all-inclusive of their entire product lineup, personally I've had good experiences with the things of theirs I have, none of which are WC parts, but as I said above, I read and ask questions, it's the only way to learn.

With them and I mean none WC parts, is hit-and-miss, but generally speaking most of their parts are ???? and I would not get anything of theirs even if it was 1/2 price...............

I still have their 600W PSU that I got few years ago but barely use it, I only got it because was really cheap and I needed external PSU for leak testing my system, still works, but man, the quality it's so darn poor, It's unbelievable.

I agree that EK is not the best quality as well but I think they became so popular because they are usually the first to come up with blocks available for new GPUs..maybe that's not the best thing and why sometimes quality suffers.

Anyhow.. yes, the best way to make as min. mistakes is possible is to do your homework, presumable 8 out of 10 helps to narrow down the bad stuff.

Well seems like a lot of hate to tt. The crazy thing is they whernt that cheap on the fittings. But I think I'll order up some other brand as I'm not taking a chance with this computer to many nice new shiny parts

what is windows 8?

A computer is a lot of money and to water cool, then gamble with substandard parts. That's a risk I wouldn't be willing to take, I'm already taking enough of a risk getting liquid within possible fatal proximity to my very expensive custom PC if something goes wrong, I prefer to minimize that possibility as much as possible.
