Are there any recommended quick disconnects here? I can imagine reliability is paramount.

Koolance QDC's
4's are less restrictive but massive compared to QDC3's
Will take a look thanks. That was the question I forgot. Are QD's restrictive and how much so?

Do both the male/female QD's attach to standard G1/4 compression fittings?

Shawnb99 suggestion is reccomended. Otherwise go to the industrial/medical grade qdc like cpc colder ones

I've used nothing but Koolance fittings, barbs qdc's etc for the last 15 years at least without any issues and I've tried many.

I used to have the ones EK supplied with their EK XLC and Phoenix kits. They are rebranded CPC QDC's and are amazing in quality but buying them straight from CPC is expensive as can be.

What are on the tube side of the QDC? Is it a barb + compression fitting?

Yes, barb + compression fitting with a plastic locking collar / hose clamp.

Is the hose clamp an optional model? I don't see any hose clamp here:

Look at cpc colder metal ones like lq6. Pretty stuff but expensive as hell. Also needs adapter in NPT size to convert back to conventional watercooling standard fittings and tubing dimensions.
