looking for a fitting to connect to rads together
 
I an looking for a fitting that will connect the output of one ran into the input of another rad I want it to be wide enough so that a fan can fit a little snug in between the to rads. I have looked around but I haven't seen any actual fitting like this except for the fitting that goes in between two watercooled video cards

A SLI adjustable connector could work, with additional male-female extender if necessary.

Could be a waste though since heat dissipation is heavily influenced by the difference between air and surface temperature. Then again Noctua's NH-D14 seems idiotic from a design perspective as well and it's a god like cooler.

I haven't seen one for that. I'd think you're best bet would be to just hose it as best you can with compression fittings.

Hmm ok well I might just have to make one then lol

What about just using a fitting/spacer/fitting? Plenty of different sized spacers available.

Just need to measure the distance you need minus the fittings you are using and grab the correct sized spacer or 2 spacers added together.

Edit my bad wording they are technically called extenders:)

Exactly, extenders come in all lengths added to an adjustable GPU to GPU it should bridge any gap.
