Little question. Finishing up my triple gpu parallel build and looking to keep some visual consistency below the gpu's as the loop goes back to the res. I have some spare Barrow mini sli/crossfire single o-ring fittings left over and want to use them to link the bottom gpu to a couple of 90 rotaries.

With only one o-ring there is no way these things are safe to use in a loop when they are not compressed by gpu's. I have some unused Monsoon UV acrylic glue in a box. Can I use this to bond the fitting to the tube. Pic below of the right side arrangement. In the end there will be a 2nd tube to 90 bottom left to a drain port. Cheers.

get a set of koolance SLI adjustable fittings, they will actually lock into place when they are tightened.

just incase you are wondering how I know this. I have bitspower SLI fittings, barrow SLI fittings, and koolance SLI fittings. I have a total of 8 SLI adjustable fittings on this build.

that is how I know about the little differences between the different makes of this type of fitting.

Thanks toolmaker03. Didn't know the Koolance extenders were locking which is something in my previous In Win 909 build had put me off using the Barrow and Bitspower versions. Cheers. On this Raijintek Paean build though I'm actually only looking to glue the fittings for the aesthetics of keeping a sense of symmetry.

I'm not a fan of how the top 90 and bottom 90 enter and exit on different ports. It looks disjointed to me (pretty OCD on design) so to maintain some symmetry I can either run 2 more acrylic fluid filled tubes down to 2x 90's to maintain symmetry with the gpu blocks tubing or buy another EK gpu block connector with a blanking plate and connect it with a 5mm male to male to the bottom right gpu block port so the 90 returning to the res at the bottom exits on the bottom left port maintaining symmetry with the 90 at the top of the gpu blocks.

I'd prefer to go the glued fittings route as it gives me a cleaner look imho.
