these are the parts i have coming in the mail and should be here any time soon but i am having trouble finding the proper fittings and tubing. please note this is going to be my first ever fully custom loop going from a AIO cooler. a friend of mine has said the CPU block and RES/PUMP combo from XSPC use imperial fittings and i have no clue what that means. 

 

for this loop i would like to use clear acrylic tubing so if anyone can tell me what fittings and tubing are compatible with the parts i have ordered i would greatly appreciate it. thanks in advance.

 

also if possible i would only like to order parts from these 2 websites but if need be i will buy from whoever supply the correct fittings and tubing.

Hi Dylan, Welcome to WCUK.

 

Firstly, are you aware that WCUK is a watercooling shop as well as a forum? And i tell you this with no benefit to me whatsoever, I just know that Rob and Packer and co are seriously friendly and helpful, a service you won't get elsewhere...

 

Anyway...

 

The two items you've bought, and most others use 1/4" fittings.....you will need 2 for the waterblock, and 2 for the pump/res. And then 2 for every radiator.

 

As you are wanting to use acrylic tubing, you will need fittings specific for that tubing.

 

I'm going to use the WCUK shop......whether you choose to buy from them or not is up to you.

 

For the tubing click HERE and for the fittings click HERE.

 

Both of these links will take you to the overview page. Within each you will have many options for each. You need to make sure you pick fittings that are the same size (usually given as an inner and outer diameter e.g. 13/10mm) as the hosing you pick, for example...

 

13/10mm Primochill Acrylic Hosing 4 pack

 

13/10mm Monsoon Acrylic Compression 6 pack

 

Hope that helps :) 

 

You will probably want to buy a toolkit for the tubing. I've never used acrylic but I probably would get one should i use it in future.
