Default Monsoon compression fittings

Link:

Monsoon Free Center Compression Fittings, 1/2" x 3/4" Six Pack - Black Chrome Products Model: MON-FC-1234-6-BC [MON-FC-1234-6-BC] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

Has anybody had a chance to see or use these yet? Look pretty solid and ~$38 bucks for 6 isn't tooooo bad compared to other offerings.

Just saw these today on P-PC's as well.

I don't think they'll be all that useful in a tight situation though where you can't fit the huge wrench into. Although it hurts your thumbs, the "normal" compressions work much better in tight areas where your fingers can only fit into.

Interesting product none the less though!

These look good but they need 90s and 45s. Would kinda ruin the look if you were to use other brands.

I still prefer using barbs though.

That is pretty innovative.

One thing i would add to that, is have the side of the compression nut textured so it can help you grip the nut when its inside a tight place.

It's sort of similar to the XSPC fittings, where there are grooves for you to use a coin to tighten them.

I love these, I have 8 x black chrome on my 3/4OD tubing and they are by far the easiest compression fittings I have ever used. Helps that they look awesome too. I will take some photos once I have moved my kit to my new Trooper case....

I don't like them. I guess I'm just old fashioned. Love barbs or more "classic" style compressions.

I really don't like what I see posted on FrozenCPU as extra pictures (installed) and would not personally switch from Bitspower, but if enough people want those we can bring some in.
