Mr_Armageddon Posted October 16, 2009 Author Share Posted October 16, 2009 Are you going to be cooling your Motherboard Chipset? If so, I would use the 45 degree Rotary Fittings between the Chipset and CPU waterblocks as the bend can be really tight. If you are not WC your Chipset, then using the rotary fittings on the bottom RAD works fine as well. I personally used barb fittings on the T-Block coming out of the reservoir because there was a lot of tubing in that area, and compression fittings would have been really difficult to tighten (I have big hands). If you get the Bitspower barbs, they don't even need clams as they are a tad bigger than 3/8" and the tubing goes on very sung. On the pumps I just some basic nylon hose clamps to secure the tubing to the barb. Just make sure your hose clamps are rotated in a directions that won't interfere with the T-Block and Barb fitting from the reservoir. Those 5870's do perform well and are priced pretty good, but I too can't move forward until I at least see some benchmarks from the Fermi cards.
