Those fittings look very cheap and poorly coated. I can see the brass will be showing through as soon as they are tightened, but hey.. more fittings on the market means more competition so the ones I like to use should hopefully drop in price slightly

edit*

I can already see in the photograph how the paint has worn away from them tightening the fittings.

Remember the words "early prototype", these are the issues that should be ironed out before any of these products hit the market. A valid concern though.

There was no pic when I posted.

I like the 90 degs. They look like Bitspower.

Painted fittings are never ideal. Ano is better.

Yup, looks that way. Those are definitely AQ 90 degree fittings, or sourced from the same factory. Bitspower 90s don't have that angled "triangle" look. If all Corsair is going to do is re-brand other fittings, that's crap, why even bother?

Both GPU & CPU blocks are AQ as well. The prototyping in question seems to go as far as some G & N CNC code changes so the engravings read "Corsair."

Though I do wonder who long they will be selling these particular parts now they have former EK staff on the books, once this probable licencing agreemant with AQ ends we will probably see Corsair parts proper.
