The name of this product has been changed from Quick Disconnect to Quick Release. Such a great....

How do you know Koolance didn't just license the product to be built under a different brand? Happens all the time...

This is like comparing wrenches from 2 completely different companies, They will still look the same

Aquatuning has a bad habit of doing that; they used to do it with Bitspower's fittings before they surrendered the copyright, but they don't currently claim Koolance as their own (I think; the database isn't accessible right now). Very strange.

Edit; yes, I suppose it's possible for the fittings to have been licensed to their name, but to me that's unlikely.

but I still would rather like black color than koolance's shiny silver


PS
Chunky_Chimp, you are definitely correct,
yes, I also noticed that a lot of fittings of "someone" are exactly the same as Bitspower's ones

Koolance's QDC is very famous and in a class by itself.
If you don't know this, then I guess you aren't an experienced watercooling player.

No, i'm not an "experienced watercooling player"... whatever that is, but I do know that a lot of companies license products to be built under different brands/model names. The CoolIT all-in-one water systems spring to mind as an immediate example of such a product that is built and sold under a variety of guises.

EDIT: Although I did once have a very high end kit in a TJ07 before I sold it all :/

Indeed, there are a lot of, for example, DDC pumps and D5 pumps, products are made/designed by one company. All DDC and D5 are from Laing, no matter the brand is Koolance, Swiftech..... But the QDC is different. The best and only QDC we can see in the market comes from Koolance. Kl has the copyright.
