Ah yes. When you fill make sure to tip your rig around to the extreme to make sure you get out all of the air. I made the mistake of not bleeding a rad properly once and the temps were rubbish.

This is where I lost now , I'm on the fittings page browsing but there is just so much stuff & half of it outa stock, the only way I would get all the fittings that have been recommended previously in this thread would be to mix from different manufacturers which then puts me at risk of the tubing not fitting

If anybody has ten or fifteen minutes over the weekend to help my choose maybe via teamviewer or something like that it would be a great help ! I'm really grateful for all your help so far

I can help you. We can jump on the OC3D Discord too or something like that.

Fittings wise, its is "ok" to mix rotaries although looks weird, but the actual compression fittings ideally should remain the same. Exceptions can happen. e.g. you opt for thick tubing for the loop that is visible to everyone, but behind the scenes (hidden away) you choose a flimsy thinner tube to handle the trick bends in the background.

highflow.nl is a fantastic site. EKWB.com is ok but i find stock issues all the time are a problem. Alternatively I can share with you the contact point of Lily at bitspower and you can order direct from her which comes straight from the Taiwan factory. She often helps me with discounts and tax breaks as well as a few bonus items. Its because of that I always stick to BP. Her customer service is fantastic. In fact the others when she is not available are also great.

Downside to BP are the premium costs. Barrow fittings are almost identical, at half the cost if you can find a place to buy in bulk.

So long as the fittings are rated at the same size (example 15/12) then it will work fine with 15/12 hose. Personally I used all straight fittings, then / 1/4 rotaries (snake, straight, 90 degree, 45 degree and 30 degree) to make the tubing go where I wanted. I used 80 % bitspower and then a mix of Barrow and EK to finish, but the Barrow and EK were plain black and not branded so it all looked great.

I would stick to black or chrome because they will fit any build, rather than just one. I already had the red ones so I had to go with red

Got the Barrow waterblock yesterday, a bit gutted because the the two nuts and bolts which hold down the top section into the block are missing, anybody know what size these should be ? I'll see if I can get some from the local hardware store.

Anyway, All finished today, Got such a headache looking on all different sites for fittings I just went and bought a thermaltake kit of local ads site, its brand new and paid 200e (400e on amazon) euros for it.



Didn't use the cpu waterblock as my Corsair H115i is still working for the moment

I'll do some more research over the coming months and hopefully this summer fit some straight tubing and another rad, thanks for the input peeps

Nicely done, that's a decent option. I'd get that CPU block on too, just for the heck of it. How are the GPU temps looking?

46c max on the Gpu just got my highest Timespy extreme score also 7768 Now I have seen how it all fits together I'll add another rad , cpu block and straight tubing during my summer holiday..

Another thing, on the bottom of the Gpu block there is a 3 pin female rgb cable and RGB light strip, any idea how I use this, tried a fan header lol but the block didn't light up....

Need to get some antibacteria additive and maybe some blue dye also..
