Default Question about Fittings

Can the fittings in this Bay Res/Pump be replaced with compression fittings?

Any standard G1/4 fitting will work. They are enough apart to room to fit bigger fittings.

If you're going to use compression fittings on a "plastic" thread use care to ensure that you're not over torquing the barbs when you tighten the compression part onto the tubing.

Thanks for the tip Steve, I am guessing finger tight should suffice.

Yep fingertight with some form of grip to ensure the best torque (I've got rubber coated mechanics gloves for a good grip) ... the tip is from personal experience.... ;)

I read your worklog and you had some great tips in there. After many years I have decided to dive into water cooling. I do currently have an Antec 920 kit but I want to get my feet wet with a custom loop. I don't think I am going to water cool my graphics card just the 2600K I recently bought.

I will putting this setup in the Corsair Vengeance C70 case.

This is what I was thinking for a setup so far.

RayStorm CPU WaterBlock (Intel)
Slim High Density Dual 120mm Radiator XSPC EX240
XSPC Dual 5.25" Reservoir for One Laing D5 Single Loop
Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1850RPM 59CFM @ 28db Fans
Feser Tube UV Hose - 3/8" ID - 1/2" OD - SKY BLUE/UV Blue
Various Bitspower 3/8"ID - 1/2"OD compression fittings

Fluid: Distilled Water
DazMode Protector
