Default Best push fit tube fittings?

I'm looking for anyones input on these. Considering getting rid of the barbs for something easier to use and still be reliable. I'm assuming you would have to use the tube inserts for tube of less hardness?

for sure, the flexibility issue

Nota Bene: quite limited negative pressure capability

if cost is not a big issue, look at the systems used by the Europeans
large IDs can be vexing however

3/8" O.D. is as far as i'm going. Bling factor isn't priority. Wondering what is the best for water cooling application. Maybe a pro-view into it. Don't paticularly like the screw compression ones I seen some Euro's use. I checked swiftech but couldn't find anything other one for the pump.

Bruce offers the MCP600 with push fits ?
but they are for 1/2" OD, you could possibly get the pump with just the threaded barbs ?

Hey, I have some DMs from homedepot, they are pretty good but rather big, I also have some Legris that I got from mcmaster, they are nickel plated brass with black plastic locking peices, Much better looking and lock tube better and they are smaller. overall they rock
I dont seem to have the part number off hand.

Bill, you dont like these little guys at all do you

Have you ever tried them? becides the possibly small performance decrease or maybe even gain(wich I have seen in my own work) these things rock. You once mentioned that you havent built a pc in a while, now I'm assuming you havnet watercooled one either lately, If you have ever tried routing a couple blocks then tried changing some hardware? its virtually impossible.

or maybe you were out fighting the germans in WWII and still have a grudge

I'v been keeping an eye on that. No luck yet. I might of confused you with the O.D.. I meant 1/2" OD. 3/8" ID although I'm looking for the 3/8"OD as well. Looking to see what I can do with a low flow approach.

I seen the 1/2" OD. fitting for the pump on the site. Atleast I think I did.

Edit: Nope, what i seen was for the Eheim 1048 pump.

Everything I found so far has a decent pressure rating but nothing for the negative side of things.
