Customize your rig with these water cooling accessories. Accessories provide a great way to add flair or a custom touch to your system. From fittings, filters, tubing, and other hardware we have many choices to keep your PC looking great.

FAQ & Section Info

What fittings should I use?



There are three types of fittings, the straight barb, compression, and plastic fittings. Barb fittings require a metal clamp to keep tubing secure and prevent liquid from leaking. Compression fittings have built-in screw-on clamps for ease of use. Plastic fittings are available however when used in combination with a metal clamp there is potential for damage. We recommend going with either straight (for price) or compression (for looks) and we advise avoiding plastic.

What size fitting do I need?

The standard threading for water cooling fittings are BSPP G1/4 so please be sure this is what you order unless otherwise noted on your hardware. This means almost everything on the market uses G1/4 (reservoirs, blocks, radiators, etc...). If your hardware does not use the standard you will need to use barbs that will adapt to the appropriate threading.

What size tubing should I use?



This is determined by the fittings used. Typicallys all systems today are going to use 3/8" or larger tubing. The flow rate of differnt diameter tubing does not affect performance to any substancial degree.

Is tubing expensive?



Tubing like anything is priced by quality. Cheaper tubing is pliable but will kink more often and as a result will be more difficult to route. Quality tubing is flexible but firm enough to be routed into a curve.
