Kooalnce QDC 7/16" 5/8" Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about adding in a pair of QDCs so my loop is easier to drain. (Koolance website)

Right now I have 7/16" ID 5/8" OD tubing on 1/2" barbs, with zip ties. However, Koolance does not make any QDCs for this size

Can I purchase 1/2" ID (13mm) QDCs and make it work? (Similar to stretching the tubing over 1/2" barbs like I have now)

Has anyone done this and succeeded in doing so?

EDIT: My avatar is my current PC, however, I no longer have the drain line, and the pump is connected directly to the GPU. I would add in the QDC on that line.

Yep, it works just fine (the barbs on the QDCs, I mean). I have 4 in my loop like that.
Just be aware that the included hose clamp is a bit of a pain to get on and off.

Just adding that you can buy different sized clamps separately if you need: http://koolance.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=62_87

They might fit better with the stretched tube.
