Hi-flow design: .40" (10.2mm) bore ID x .47" (12mm) barb ID
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:
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
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.
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

I bought eight of these for my new system. Before I was a ghetto watercooling builder using barbs and automotive hose clamps. They worked and worked well but I wanted a bit of bling. These delivered. I don't know what another reviewer here said about them not being black. I'll quote Spinal Tap: "How much more black could this be?"
I picked up 8 of these compression fittings to replace the bitspower barb fittings I am using at the moment. The description says black, but when I got them they are more of a gun metal colour then black. I wish I would have known this before purchasing them. I email Swiftech and they told me they had a recall on the black fitting since the paint was peeling and chipping off of them, and they replaced them with the gun metal colour. Also one of the fitting had the insert for the silver chrome fittings, and they other 7 said black. I wouldn't recommend these if your looking for black fittings , I would choose bitspower instead.
Using 8 of these in my rig, easily attached to MCR320, MCR420, and my Apogee HD, although did not fit side-by-side in my MCRES-Micro Rev 2, but that was fine really, I just used the barbs that come with my Apogee HD so it still looked nice and sleek.
