    So I have a few questions about the fittings. I was looking at a few brands of fittings
    Monsoon,ek and alphacool which ones would be the best to use? Also say the tube has a slight angle on it when it goes into the fitting will it leak or does it have to be perfectly straight?

    It doesn't have to be perfectly straight, but at the same time, the o-ring needs to be sealing it entirely. As long as your o-ring is entirely on the tube, you will be fine. You should, however, aim to make it fit as straight as possible.

    Most definitely order at least a spare pack to practice bending. It's not as easy as it looks. :D
