WATER COOLING ACRYLIC: Monsoon Tubing With Other Fittings?

PLEASE NOTE: This is for custom water cooling and in regards to Acrylic tubing

I have read online that Monsoon acrylic fittings are no good on other acrylic tubings but my question is will acrylic fittings like from EK or Alphacool be ok with Monsoon acrylic tubing? The thing is I can just use Primochill acrylic tubing and fittings but it only comes in one size that is ID:3/8" (10mm) & OD: 1/2" (13mm) am after ID: 1/2" (13mm) & OD: 5/8" (16mm) with the ID (Inner Diameter) being bigger better flow.

    The most prevalent size is 10/12 used by Bitspower which works well perfectly w/ E22 10/12 tubing

    You can buy it just about anywhere but FCPU, tho no longer serving customers, still has the ebst web site for product information

    I was running out the door so wanted to at least leave you with something. If interested in the Monsoons, look at this thread.

    Personally, I find that style of fitting a but restrictive. Great if you are shipping a finished box as the fittings won't fall apart (the acrylic might break) no matter how much shaking it experiences. With push on joints, you can assemble / cut / reassemble / cut until you get it just right.

    HI there,
    I was wondering are Bitspower fittings like "Bitspower Premium G1/4" Shiny Silver Compression Fitting CC6 Ultimate For ID 7/16" ID (5/8" OD) Tube " compatible with "EK PTEG tubing 12mm/16mm(7/16"-5/8")"?
    Thanks in advance!
