Wich Quick Disconnects ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I havent used QDC before but as I get more experience I realise they make my life so much easier, so the question is wich ones would you reccomend ?
would these do the trick ? + these? I`d really like to put QDC on my MORA3 and GPU+CPU to make it easy to upgrade without draining thumb.gif

I'm using Koolance QD3's for my rad assembly and I love them. I didn't see those Barrows when I was looking for mine though, they look nice, might be a few bucks cheaper and probably perform about the same. This was the newest QDC review I could find which doesn't have those

They introduce a lot of restricting in your loop, so I would look for the one with the highest advertised flow rate (usually reported in Liters per Minute or "LPM"). You'll also probably want to go with a DDC pump over a D5 for head pressure, possibly even a dual pump top.

I really like Koolance's QD3 series. I'm using them in Plain Jane. They use the standard G 1/4 connection, are offered in different sizes, and you have a choice of silver or black.

I used Swiftech black chrome and, well... it was a pretty bad experience. The coating got all flaky in a few months. They looked really disastrous.

Maybe it's just that color though, and regular silver ones would have been better.

Then I switched to Bitspower shiny ones (no more black chrome for me), and they've been fine ever since, for over a year already.

Actually, in hindsight, I might have been fine without QDs at all. They do introduce restriction. They're sometimes convenient but basically it's about convenience once in a while against better flow all the time... you decide.
