Primochill Barbs, Do I need O Rings?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello my fellow watercoolers. biggrin.gif I just got some Primochill G1/4 Barbs from frozen cpu for my swiftech micro res, they are a bit tight but didn't come with any O Rings confused.gif

Do I need o rings with these barbs, do I just teflon tape them or just install them and tighten them with the pliers?

i'm not sure, but if it was me I would go look for some o-rings, Teflon tape is a must! smile.gif

I have some o-rings that came with the 3/8 swiftech fittings, and with those o rings they leak and if the o rings slips over the barbs if I tighten them a bit.

be careful when tightening with pliers you can crack the block if its acetal or acrylic.

also i know people that just use Teflon tape and it works well. i personally use orings.

edit
just saw the barbs, i dont think orings will work well on those barbs. orings only work well when the barbs have an extusion to hold the oring "inside" the barb

Thanks, Yea, Thats what I was thinking, they have no extrusion to hold the o ring inside. So I guess I will just use telfon tape. Little or a lot?? biggrin.gif

Thanks again thumb.gif
