I have BP fittings on my Swiftech MCR220. Works fine. They are just G1/4 threads and thus the G1/4 barbs work fine.

Though if you have a really old Swiftech rad, then it's probably not G1/4, so you'd probably need an adapter or something.

The regular fatboys fit just fine. The compression ones are a little iffy, since they're wider than the recessed inlet. Best to find a thicker o-ring if you want to use those.

Thermochill PAs and old Swiftechs are the only G3/8 threaded rads I know of...

Bitspower also makes a G3/8 to G1/4 conversion fitting -- another reason they are the best on the market.

True, but I think they are only available as barbs. All the nice, fancy stuff (compression fittings, rotaries, etc.) are all G1/4 .
