What barbs for mcw 60

Hi,
i have a hd 5870 water cooled with a swiftech mcw 60 waterblock,
The problem i have is it housed in a cosmos s case and at the moment the pipework from the block fouls on the 200mm side fan of which i have removed.
What i would like to know which are the best 90 degree angled barbs to use for this particular waterblock.
I will say that there is a slight recess where the barbs go into the block so the
thread would have to be quite long.
thx in advance

More about what barbs
  1. I am currently running two MCW60's- I've used nylon 90 degree barbs many times as well as normal, straight barbs. Are you looking for compression fittings or barbs?

    I'm currently using some of these:
