Thats right folks! For the water cooling aficionado or the newbie, everyone loves Bitspower, and everyone loves free stuff!

So what do you need to get these? I have only one requirement. I want to see the very current invoice of your water cooling components without fittings. I am trying to help someone with a current build, not provide nicer fittings to someone who already has a running loop. The date on the invoice should be within the last week or two. You can black out everything you want EXCEPT the parts, date, and the address (I will ship to the address on your invoice, no exceptions). I want a picture of your printed invoice with your OCN username written on it, no screenshots. DO NOT send me your invoice until after you've won.

If you are planning on buying a loop soon enter and if you win you'll get fittings for free!

I'd really like these fittings to go to a new water cooler. Fittings are a huge money sucker when you don't realize how expensive they can be. I want to help someone buy that extra rad or water block they may want so they can cool both CPU and at least one GPU to get the full experience of a good loop.

Fittings are 1/2" 3/4" matte black, angled fittings are 45 degrees.

Drawing is Friday 30/1/14. You pay shipping.



There is some plate flaking on a fitting. I cleaned off the loose bits and this is what's left. I've read and have been told it is completely safe and useable.

All of my black bitspower fittings peeled on the inside. Its now all stuck in my blocks and I dont have the time to take them all apart individually and deep clean them.

I wouldnt take them, even for free, unless I was going to strip them first. Even then, there will be dissimilar metals in the loop that will probably corrode.

Not a problem. My requirements are pretty specific so I want as many participants as possible.

Hopefully I can push someone to buy their first loop after winning!

Yes I do plan to give them away eventually. It may just be later than Friday for the drawing.

I am working on getting my new fittings replaced at the moment and as soon as I have ones that work I'll end the contest and ship my old fittings to the winner.

Only one of my fittings had that problem. Also, the coating is nickel from what I read so having them stripped to show the brass is actually more similar than not.

You should clean your blocks about once a year regardless of having problems or not I believe.

The black nickel plated ones just look like dark chrome. I believe these are powder coated. It could be from something I ran in my loop.

I either need to start cleaning my blocks regularly or go back to air. Not sure what I want to do. Just info for potential takers.
