no way that tapered thread is what you need.

where did you go? Home Depot? Would've been better off at a Boat Parts store (if you have one of those) or neighborhood Hardware (like ace)

Couldn't get more of a raw metal then this. I don't know if any anti corrosives will help to prevent from fast corrosion

Yes it is tapered but if you notice the fittings that are used only use maybe 3 threads.

They might be gone now, but not forever, unless these particular rads has been discontinued and even then, HL has to have similar specs replacements if you within warranty period. I know If I was facing this I would rather wait until they are available and get the proper rads to make it right. Then again, If you on hurry and comes push to shove scupples making good suggestion

I have no idea what a "watercooling tier 2 inch extension" is, you are basically talking a different language to me. I put together a water cooling computer 8 years ago for the first time (adult legos) and that is the extent of my knowledge about PC water cooling. If you could produce a picture of the part or a part # of what you are talking about I might have a better idea of what you're talking about.

Thanks for your help thus far, much appreciated.

Even with extensions you will still see shift to one side or the other. If hes going for glass tubing then obviously he goes for aesthetic and quality
