One of the major reasons to use water cooling is the low noise aspect of the setup. Often, an air cooled system will exhibit the standard whining noise, especially in a high CFM environment. However, in previous years, water cooling gear was expensive and there was always the fear of water exploding into your case if done wrong. So like the case modding market, manufacturers have gone ahead and created stand alone kits that are quick and easy to set up.

The neat thing about this kit is that it doesn't use any clamps. Instead, each inlet/outlet is attached to a tube by the means of locking 'teeth'. In the above elbow connector picture, pushing down on the blue area will retract the teeth. Push the tube inside and let go and the teeth will bite onto the tubing to keep it in place.
