Fittings advices needed PLEASE

Hi,

I am writting you this mail as I am a novice on this matter and I am sure you'll be the expert on that.

I am building a liquid loop for my computer and I am struggling to know which fittings I would need, the build is :

- AsRock X570 Aqua ( taking into account the Water block pre-installed is big so I would need an extension before the 90° ones).
- Asus Geforce Nvidia RTX 2080 ti ( I bought the Ek Vector Strix RTX RGB Waterblock)
- Black Ice Nemesis radiator GTS 360.
- Black Ice Nemesis radiator GTS 240.
- Thermaltake Pacific PR22-D5 PLus.

Could you please advise me which one I need to purchase and which tubes size (Hard Tubes PETG prefered) ?

If you can creat a basket in your webshop also with those I would buy them then.

Thank you very much in advance for your time and advices.

Can you post a picture of your system?
We need to know where you will install your radiators and reservoir.
Then we can think of how to route your tubing and which fittings you need.

Also do you want to bend the tubing or do you want to use straight pieces of tubing with 90 degree adapter fittings?

You need 2 tube fittings for every component, say you have:
2 radiators
1 CPU block
1 GPU block
1 reservoir
1 pomp
---
Total of 6 components, times 2 = 12 fittings total.
The angle adapter fittings and extenders is hard to predict, just order a few of each.

We always recommend not to focus on trying to order everything at once or in one order.
That often does not work, as while you build, plans can change due to unforeseen situations.
Therefore place an order for the basic parts and items you think you need.
Start building and place a second order for the extra items you might need.
That way you spend your precious time much more efficient and you stay flexible with your plan and build.

Thank you very much Freddy that helps a lot !

In case I don’t manage the cooling part, is there any way to come to the shop and ask someone to do it ?
If so, do you know how much it can cost ?

Have a great evening and weekend

That is possible, but only after January, these months are always extremely busy.
But just try it yourself first, once you have started you will most probably finish it yourself, like 99% of our customers :)

Morning Freddy,

Sorry I'll have to bother one last time


I set up the loop for the Pump/Reseervoir - radiator - CPU. However I can't for the GPu as the loop will need to be bend more than five 5 times ( I am not expert enough to make sure it will work).

I thought using soft tubes only for this one.

Can you tell me if the fittings I bought ( based on your list above) Can be used ? And if so which soft tubes I should buy ?

Thanks a gain and have a great day !

Thanks for posting here on our new forum :)

If you want to use soft tubing, then you need soft tubing fittings.
So if you have ordered fittings for hard tubing, then these fittings cannot be used on soft tubing.

You will need to order new fittings specifically for soft tubing.

White soft tubing fittings:

And compatible soft tubing:

Thanks Freddy :)

And what would be the 90° fittings for this soft tube ?
Does it make sense to have half hard tubes and half soft ?

Thanks again a lot !!

For 90 degree, you will have to use an angle adapter like this:

So the angle adapter you can screw into the waterblock or other component, and the tube fitting you can screw in the angle adapter again, making it a 90 degree fitting :)

It does make sense, a lot of people are combining hard tubing and soft tubing, for the same reason as you.
In some tight spaces or difficult bend, it is much easier (and safer) to use soft tubing.
