So I bought a thermal take all in one liquid cooling kit. But it doesn’t come with the fittings needed. It comes with 2 80 degree angle fittings. And the tubing is 16mm OD. I’m SO confused on fittings. I’ve bought and returned 3 sets already. I get compression fittings. But then how do you connect that to anything else. I have prinochill revolver fittings and 4 90 depree compression fittings. I’ve almost givin yo and just used a heat gun since the kit cane with the rubber tube needed. But I don’t get how to connect fittings. Plz help me.

I've never set up a custom loop, but from my understanding the fittings are mostly for connecting to the other cooling components like blocks/reservoirs/pumps?
thermaltake has a video for how to shape the hard tubes. You need a silicone tube insert and a heat gun to bend it, and a pipe cutter to cut it to size. It's on thermaltake's page for the c360, which looks like the kit you purchased.
link to the video on youtube for tube shaping
link to video for compression fitting

what water cooling blocks are you using for the GPU/CPU?

If you bough an AIO why would you need to buy fittings or anything else for that matter? An AIO or CLC are ready right out of the box. OK. You don't have an AIO. What you actually bought is one of those complete custom loop kits. I would try and get somebody who is familiar with custom loops locally to give you a hand.

I bet if you bought Algomorla a plane ticket and put him up at the Hilton he would be glad to come out and help set it up!

did you return everything?
i would replan, because thermaltake is garbage.
They use alu in the rads saying its OK because it has a sacrifical node... when the whole point in not mixing metals is to avoid corrosion which a sacrificial node undergoes.

Also i do not recommend you using Rigid fittings as your first build though, because they take a skill level which is not where a beginner should start learning how to water cool at.
