Fitting Problem 16OD/12ID Lian Li SL120 EK Res


I am having an issue where my fitting is too thick, not enough clearance, it hits the fan and I can turn the CAP anymore.(right side of fitting in the picture) I am using Hardline fittings.

Here are the pics:

It shows precisely why I cant put the cap on. This is exactly the amount of space I have.
This is what I am thinking of using to solve this issue... The total is 700$, is there another way to go about this?

First remove the radiator from the case and then unscrew the fans to thread the fittings. Once tight, put the fans back on. If the fan next to the fitting won't fit, get a file and mod that fan a bit or get a different fitting if you have time.

While not as pleasing to the eye, running with one less fan won't impact your cooling performance with 2x rads installed.

I am confused, you can just get a fitting extender, you already have it in the list and its around 8 dollars. Is there another reason you cant just get that to fix your problem?

I was thinking if I had really had to buy the fittings I would buy the distro plate too because shipping was extremely expensive. Is the distro plate worth it? Will it run better than my 4 year old pump res?

I am also uncertain of the outer diameter of the fitting... What if I run into the same problem...? Is the fittings 28mm too high or not?

Distro plates just look good, not much else 😕 

 

How much is shipping? It would have to be outrageous to spend another $550

Damn, that is pretty price, but in my opinion, not work the extra few hundred dollars. Look at what @Applefreak said, that will work.
