what's your expected timeline in relation to the T1? ......What was the decided best option for low pro fittings?
Any news on availability?
Is there a chance this will be available for purchase before the release of the 3950x?
The current plan is November. We have slowed down due to life interruptions, now we are back on track.Any sort of time frame for when this could see release?
Alphacool 90° TPV fitting is particularly low profile. The total height is only 26 mm. After screwing the connection into e.g. a radiator or CPU water cooler, the height is only 21 mm. A fitting cannot be designed much lower from our experience.
Alphacool sell these 90° fittings, although from what I could find these aren't sold separately from the expansion QDC tubing kits. Theses do seem lower in height in comparison to other 90° rotary fittings (whilst still maintaining G1/4 thread and a 11/8 tubing. Made from brass and painted matte black.
Edit: If the talks with alphacool go well to develop your block, maybe these fittings could be sourced from them as well (or perhaps G1/4 thread to 1/8 compression instead)
21mm is in the realm of being usable with a 1 slot gpu block and having it be 2 slots wide. could be an interesting usecase for some (not sure about pump though)Alphacool launched those low profile swivel fittings seperately but updated with a lower profile compression fitting made of nlyon (the fitting is brass, cap is nylon). Inserted height is 21 mm. Designed to be used with Alphacool's AlphaTube TPV EDPM tubing (aka EKWB ZMT Tubing).
