I haven't found anything. Mc-Master-Carr is looking more and more likely the place I'll be ordering.

keep the discussion going guys! this is great. so far i ordered 24 feet of petg 3/8 x 1/2 tubing from mcmaster, a rimmer and some primochill revolver fittings. it worked out great because they have a 10 pack for 70 dollars. and thats exactly how many i need. any ideas about using spacers with the fittings? right now im worried about the cpu block not being able to fit the two primochill fittings. they seem very fat. i still need to find a heatgun somewhere.

I'd suggest something with temperature control.

I don't think temperature control is nessessary. A $15 heat gun will be sufficient.

Also not sure about PETG tubing. It isn't UV resistant and there is no information on it plastics will leech out of the tubing after long term exposure to warm coolant.

I only suggest it after the many times I have screwed shit up using one. They get quite a bit hotter than most people expect and that tubing doesn't require 500c heat to anneal.

here's what happens with Primochill on a "too hot and too fast" technique... I was trying to make a nice spiral, sort of worked. just got to slow down.

Tubing definitely was too hot in the pics above. You should be pulling it away from the heat long before that happens. Also try on a lower temperature, just heat it up longer.
