we both use a unidirectional thumb grip pattern for the collar and since its the most visible part, then yes then tend to look similar. but we feature an hex at the fitting base, and 4 flats on the collar; and our bore OD is larger. We manufacture these ourselves btw, just in case you wondered.

Is there any chance we might see those at retailers in Japan ?

Keep an eye at Oliospec, as they are listed resellers for Swiftech.
CoolingLab may resell it after it released. You can even contact them as they take orders for products not listed on their site.

Import is also a important option to consider, as prices can go crazy here, especially for watercooling. Even with the shipping, it may be cheaper to buy it from Usa/Europe.

Thanks for the advice smile.gif
If they plan to stock them, I hope it won't be too long before they do as my next build is coming very soon.
I guess I could go ask them directly since I work close to their office...

So say we tighten by hand on a plastic surface and there is still a gap, do we get a wrench and tighten it just enough for no gap and then give it 1/4 to 1/2 a rotation more or do we start the 1/4 to 1/2 a rotation regardless of how much gap there is after tightening by hand.

So what you and I describe are the exact same thing, and yes you are correct: there are much fewer users of the swivel type compression fitting, simply because of the higher cost (like $14 a piece?)
Actually I have half a dozen prototypes swivel compression fittings on my desk, and decided not to launch them in production because of the high cost. Figured if my users can lock the fitting, then the swivel becomes luxury. Adapters on the other hand are a different story, and all our elbows are on swivel. That's a must.

Gabe,

Any chance you would make a base adapter that would have a swivel? Something like Bitspowers:

245

Could give you the best of both worlds, minimize cost for those that want straight compression and allow those that want to spend more to get a swivel base to prevent torque. I know you say your's lock in place so maybe it is a moot point. I have all BP rotaries and find that I can better control bends in the tube or have close proximity attachments using rotaries since the short tube length amplifies the stored torque.



BTW: love your products, been rocking a 360-QP for almost 6 years now and have dual MCP-35x's on a Koolance RP-402X2 that won't bleed. Looking to get that dual top and dumping the Koolance. Keep up the great engineering!

are the supplied o-rings a tad too thin?

i've tried the lok-seal fittings on both EK and Bitspower's 45/90 deg angled adapters and the o-ring gets compressed only by a little before the fitting gets fully threaded in.

feels a little unsafe to use with adapters as i'm still able to loosen them with my bare fingers even tho they have been 'tightened'

You say this because you are used to the 60%+ compression rate of BP's and others. This compression rate is way out of specs.

A normal oring compression rate is 30%, which is exactly what we have spec'd. Talk to any mechancial engineer if you want confirmation.

I am afraid I have to strongly disagree with you here: you wouldn't be able to loosen the fittings with your bare fingers if they had been tightened per our recommendations, reprinted below for your convenience:
