Recommended use

  • Initial Tip:  If possible, attach the fittings to the cooling devices first! While not mandatory,  it is always preferable to fasten a fittings to a cooling device prior to installing the device inside the case. This will eliminate interference issues that may be encountered when working with tools inside of space constrained enclosures.
  • Fasten the fitting by hand until it mates with the surface of the cooling device. The amount of force necessary to screw the fittings down in “finger tight” mating position may vary from one device to another depending on various factors.  Users are advised to always visually check on the actual position of the fitting relative to the device surface rather than solely relying on feel. There should be little -not to exceed the thickness of a sheet of paper, or no visible gap between the fitting lower lip and the device surface. See the illustration below.

 

  • For complete long-term safety and leak-free operations, Swiftech® recommends that the fittings be locked in place using the recommended tools and that the torque levels specified below be applied:

Recommended Torque

Soft Material

Minimum

Maximum (*)

Acetal (POM) and acrylics

1/4 of a turn after initial contact between mating surfaces

1/2 of a turn after initial contact between mating surfaces

Hard Materials

Recommended

Copper, brass, aluminum

1/8 of a turn after initial contact between mating surfaces

(*) For full 5mm thread depth – please inspect the device threads prior to applying the maximum
recommended torque – when partial threads exist due to application necessity, only apply the
minimum torque.

 

Recommended Tools

A small adjustable wrench with jaw opening up to 1” (25.4mm)

may be used as a universal tool instead of the specific tools listed below

Pros
-Fits into blocks, radiators and reservoirs well. That's it.
Cons
- the compression nut is so hard to put on once the tube is on. I am having a tough time typing this review since my fingers still hurt!!!!
- the black is not a deep black like in the picture above. Seems that not enough black paint was applied. The brass/copper shows through. So it's more a dark brown colour.
Summary
I gave it a 1 star but ncix wouldn't post it or was taking to long. Read fully. Don't buy. Yes it's cheaper than other brands but I guess the old saying is true, "you get what you pay for". Once the tube is on, it is so hard to put on the compression nut. It won't even reach the threads to begin with. You have to use so much force that it is ridiculous. I was being so cautious when working on my rad so as not to crush the fans that are behind it. I used primochill advanced lrt 3/8 and 5/8. At first I thought perhaps the tubing was not made to proper size. So I tested it on a different brand quick disconnect and that went on like butter, stayed on too. Save your fingers buy another brand.
