It takes 2 seconds to cut the tube... but compression fittings make sense if you don't want to have to discard the piece of tube you sliced

well... what if you are running out of tube?

anyway... i just found out that o-ring is possible toasted... but i did turn barb more tight with big wrench...

a long short story; i tighted all barbs with my spare tube (mistake size one)... after discovered the leak... i bleed them again and add 1/16" width tie zip then refill it... and discovered the leak lightly from same barb... again...

i went to my storage and found some adjusting wrench.. and i picked cleanest one... and tighted the barb again...

lets wait and see... if its leaking again... ***... i want to assemble all hardware then use it for one month or so... as my project (customize case) is complete then bleed and dis-assemble it for paint...

Not sure how the knife affects bleed time If you want to drain the loop faster just put in a well-located drain... I run straight distilled, so I'm not planning to replace tubing, only coolant and even that, only once a year or so.

I usually tighten the barbs hand-tight and then add 1/4 turn with a wrench. Any more than that and you can stip the threads on fittings or crack things like acrylic tops. I would suggest you try some teflon tape on the threads if you're still developing leaks. Do you have a different barb/o-ring that you can try there?

sac... just check your computer... you have quick release connector... so its not messy working... but where is your "well-located drain"

someone told me to not use wrench... just tight it by hand... so i use spare rubber to make sure 100%...

i also wonder about that teflon tape... can we use it on watercooling pc? O_O just curious... nothing about disadvantage to use it?

anyway.... i check my system.. it still has no leaking... in less than 24 hour...

The bottom quick-disconnect, under the GPUs can be removed, pushed out through the false-floor and out the back side of the case to be the lowest point.

A wrench is fine as long as you don't overtighten, hand tight plus 1/4 is fine.
i also wonder about that teflon tape... can we use it on watercooling pc? O_O just curious... nothing about disadvantage to use it?
Completely safe for PCs, just make sure you use a narrow enough piece that it doesn't hang off the barb and affect flow. Also remember that the tape isn't supposed to plug the hole, it just lubricates the threads to they make better contact with each other. IE you don't need to wrap the threads alot, once around is plenty.
anyway.... i check my system.. it still has no leaking... in less than 24 hour...
You should be fine then, just keep an eye on it for the next few hors and then the first few days of operation.

This is why I use 7/16 tube over 1/2" barbs. and I still use clamps

Make sure the barb is really tight and the O-ring is tightened down, I had a barb that didn't have the right size o-ring and it leaked.
