Beside classical fittings, barb fittings are another way to connect hoses with fittings. They are much more compact then classical fitting so that you can see more of the tube.. Very popular in Casemoddingsystems!
This fittings has a 90° kink and is a rotary style. Thatīs important for easy tubing of the system.
The first three colors, Chrome, Deep Black and Shiny Copper offer something for every taste. The product matching series are designed to look elegant in every system, highlighting the individual design of the computer.
With a new process during chromatizing the surface finish is completely connected with the brass body, hence ensuring permanent intense colors and peeling of the chrome layer. The Alphacool name in blue lettering on some of the fittings additionally underlines the individuality of these items.

So, it leaked on day one11-12-2014

First off, these fittings are really hard to tighten. There''s a very small area to grab the thread and screw it on. If you don''t have enough space to rotate the entire barb, don''t hope on hand tightening. If you use a tool to tighten these, you are likely to scratch the chrome plating and expose the brass underneath. The rotary part wiggles a lot, to the point that it may decompress the internal O-ring enough to cause a leak. That''s what happened to me. It didn''t leak from the thread, it didn''t leak from the barb, but it leaked from in-between the two pieces. Nothing I could do about that but the throw away the barb. The only good thing about this fitting is that the barb is very well designed. It''s almost impossible to get it to leak, and it grabs on to the tubing very well, but that is useless if the rotary part is leaking.
