Anyone want one for exact cost? Me and my rush to buy the thing, I clicked buy 2 times. If this is wrong forum, please move or delete the post.

Thanks.

Uhh... Call the store and tell them to switch your order qty, they do this kinda thing all the time.

1/4" fittings are very restrictive you could of brought the one with 1/2" fittings.

Fittings are of no concern, just replace them if needed. It's not like they are welded on...

if you like throwing away money it isn't. it's $2.50 per fitting $5 for two then 10.05 for for shipping for a total of extra $15.05 that's from DD directly

What if his current blocks and tubing are 1/4in?

I have a koolance Exos with 1/4" tubing. It has NEVER been an issue cooling my system and video card. I currently have a chipset cooler on the 8800GTX with 1/4" and it never gets above 45C under load. It even comes after my FX60 CPU in the loop. I love it.

Then I would say he's not getting the best performance out of his water cooling setup.

I don't have water on my G80 yet, but my dual 7800GTXs were running 32C-33C under load this winter and in the summer heat they were 41C-42C under load following my 4400+ in the loop with a BIX3 radiator(I have since changed to a pa120.3).
all I'm saying is you could have even have better temps using 1/2" fittings, AquaExtreme 50Z or Laing D5 pump and a good radiator (http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=75873), if you want the best get a pa120.3 but they are not easy to find. the BI GT360 is a good one as well.
