Default rotary and quik connect fittings

k last question do rotray fittings swivel 360 degrees once installed into a componet?

and koolance quik connects. id like to put them inline (hose to quik connect to hose) will i need a male and a female quik connect and barbed fiiting on either end to do that?

i cant seem to find any videos on these fitting so i have no idea how the work. and the descriptions dont help much either

My System Specs


Bitspower rotaries swivel 360 degrees, I've never used another brand.

As for the Koolance QDC couplings, they can come complete with compression fittings on the end, or with sockets for regular barbs. See here: Water cooling systems, pc liquid cooling kit, cpu, video card, hard drive
So it's very important to order the correct size/fitting you want.

Keep in min that QDCs are rather long when both parts connected (male-female) and it's heavy. I find it difficult to find a good position for them sometimes... so it looks good....
