When we build a water cooling loop we like to do it properly and will only use compression fittings for all tubing joins. Not only do they look better than the alternatives they are considered the most reliable solution. Along with compression fittings for tubing we will also use angle fittings (smart 45° and 90° connectors) where we think is suitable to add that finishing touch.
Each cooling loop will typically have anywhere between 6 to 14 compression fittings and 0 to 6 angle fittings. At around £5 each these do push the cost of a custom cooling loop up but it’s an important necessity.
As there is such cost involved we have decided to let you guys choose the finish of your fittings adding to that personal finishing touch.
