I'm using the VL4N connectors to break my system into 3 parts: Pump, Motherboard+CPU+GPUs, radiators+reservoir.

Doesn't hinder flow too much, and they are agreat. No spills and works great.

Damn that looks lovely.

I'm having some trouble finding a place to buy them from at the moment however.

http://www.aquatuning.co.uk/

seem to be the best equipped but nowhere is in stock of everything I need :S

Guess ordering from more than one shop isn't the end of the world, just looking to avoid large postage costs.

Take at look at these online stores:

I am using Koolance QDC high flow No-spill. Quality fittings. No-spill is really no spill.

Yea, I had a look at all those shops

Was going to order a load of compression fittings along side the quick release valves if I could, but I'm having some trouble finding places in stock with everything I need, I'll have to sit down and see who has what and make some decisions when I have a little more time. (at work atm on lunch)

Anyway, thanks for your input all.

I ordered mine from frozencpu.com.

They didn't have them all in stock, but 2 days after I ordered, they got them shipped out.
Might be the same with other stores.
