Quick Disconnect help

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hello, I would like to add some quick disconnects to my loop. The reason I am doing this is because I plan to add an external rad to my loop and it would just make my life so much easier with quick disconnects. So what I need help with is the size and model of the fittings. Ive been water cooling for a few months but Im new to DQCs

Im using primochill 1/2"ID 3/4"OD tubing. Which size/model QDC fittings do I get? I need two pairs (2 females and 2 males).

Any help would be greatly appreciated
-Thanks

Koolance VL3N models or the VL4N (bigger ports) series. The "N" models are "No Drip" models.

1. These things are long.

2. The VL4N series are HUGE. I'm using a set as a drain.

Reflection. I believe they're billet aluminum.

I thought Koolance doesn't use aluminum in the wc parts anymore. Because aluminum can cause corrosion in mixed metal loops.

Or brass with coating. I'm looking at the inside of my female connector and see markings where the locking teeth on the male rub the inside of the female. Looks brass color.

They just "look" billet since most pics posted on here are mirror reflecting nickel plated waterblocks.

I don't know, it looks like possible corrosion to me.
Or maybe I'm wrong, because from what I read from Koolance site that the nozzles are nickel-plated brass.

It's a reflection of his body when he took the pic. They're nickel plated. Even though they're not mirror finished there will still be a reflection. Just very very dull.
