Personnaly I prefer the metal one, more solid and you can use metal clamp to secure the tubing on the elbows.

If you still go for Hardarwe store elbows, take some that are rigged none of those flat copper ones. If you do so, you'll be asking for a leak.

and one vote for Appolo design.

I would definitely go with the compression fittings over the standard fittings. Definitely if they are the same price.

im confused as to wether the fittings come with it or not... the photos show it to look like like they come... but under Features it states no fittings....

Some waterblocks have the inlet and outlet too close together for compressions fittings, so you'll want to make sure they will work on the waterblock. IIRC, 13mm compressions barbs wont work on the D-Tek V1 or V2, Swiftech MCR30/60 (NB and GPU blocks). I know they work on the EK Supreme, and I'm pretty sure (you'll want to double check) they work on EK NB/SB blocks.

And I'd personally stay away from 90's, unless you get the metal one Martin from XS makes (copper and slightly oversized so they barely reduce flow). Plastic 90s will reduce flow a fair amount (check out Martin's flowrate calculator: Martin's Flow Rate Estimator). The delrin 90 is a bit better, but still reduces flow a decent amount. IMO, you should only use 90's if they are absolutely necessary.

Get compression fittings for the following reasons. Tight seal, barbs not needed. Also they provide better flow and just have a cool look to them.
