[QUOTE=uglyface;27862546]Hello! I finish my loop from soft tubing to hard. Use Barrow fittings and barrow petg tubing. Its my first PETG build.Хope I have done well. Тhe most hard part was the tubе from the radiator to the cpu. I managed to get it straight to the third attempt. All other from the first try.



I too just did my first hardline build and used all barrow fittings/petg, and it was a fantastic experience - 0 issues.

I cannot find them in stock anywhere anymore and i would like to buy a couple of sets ( male + female as a set ).

On Aliexpress there is a couple of them but they are selling either the male or female part alone and not as a set :/ but that will defeat the purpose of buying them cheap as shipping will end up more expensive than buying a full set of male + female together. Anyone knows where i can buy a couple of them as a full set ? Thanks in advanced for any help.

Hi Chispy

I remember I bought my sets of Barrow Quick Disconnects as pairs over on Aliexpress last time, but yes now I see too similar thing, they don't sell them as pair but separate items which is strange

Over in UK Mizucooling or others selling them as pair as well, did you check Amazon or Modmymods or Performance-pcs as they're too resellers of Barrow

Agree they're perfect, have used for same time as Barrow Koolance QD3 which has failed(stuck open position on one and on other set stuck open too) and no issues to report with Barrow,regarding the flow not sure how much they restrict flow if I'm comparing against the QD3

Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura

Hola Jura , thanks for trying to help. There is absolutely zero , 0 , nada stock on the whole set male/female on ppcs , mmm , amazon , sidewinder , ebay , etc.... As you have already found out only available at Aliexpress but only sold as single item either male or female from different vendors. I will wait a little longer to see if they come back in stock anywhere if not i will end up buying something else.

I just received a ton of Barrow fittings I ordered from Formulamod directly and they're awesome. I placed an order on 3/17 and they were really helpful and responsive with information about their stock and how long it would take to get stuff shipped. Using DHL Express to ship to the US cost about $50, but I had about 90 fittings in all. I highly recommend them.

I've read in several places, but I can't confirm if it's actually the case or not, that they are all made by the same manufacturer, they just sell the same fittings they make for Bitspower under the Barrow name with a different, more matte, finish and no BP logo. They certainly appear to be the same fittings other than the finish.
Whomever is quires about the difference between these two brands, here is some info and its straight from Bitspower source.

Barrow are not made by Bitspower in the slightest, Barrow are made in China, Bitspower products are made in Taiwan, they might look the same or similar but they both use different material.

Bitspower uses Copper and final finish color is much more durable, even O-rings are made differently, Bitspower uses more silicone to prolong the longevity and potential leaks.

Oppose to Barrow are made of brass, their paint is much less resilient to abrasion and O-rings are made with more rubber than silicone which is that's why you have to pretty much tighten them all the way to prevent leaks that might not accrue right away, but down the road.

Sounds like a response one would expect from a competing company. I have been using Barrow for over 2 years with zero issues with quality or leaking.
