OK, I've given in to temptation - last night I ordered a Clear Danger Den Dual 5.25" Bay Reservoir, as its 1. going to make the routing of my tubing ALOT easier, 2. bleed faster than the t-line with the G5 (whenever air passes through the jet plate it literally gets turned into foam), and 3. it fills in the 2 extra 5.25 bay slots that I have no other use for


but judging by my last DD bay res i had in my very first rig, I should be just fine with it, as DD doesn't use cheap thin acrylic like most other mfg's do

nope - no temp. difference from the res - the water in the system all equalizes to the same temps, having more water in the system just makes equilbrium take longer to occur

i mainly got the res to aid in the routing of tubing - without it, if i tried to go from the X18 block to the pump, its basically impossible without 3 feet of tubing

sub-40ºC temps @ full load


anyways, 955XE is on its way to me via USPS express mail (overnight), and i also got in some red/green 5mm LED's to replace the red/blue ones on my sunbeam fan controller, plus the power bridge for the ATI-X18 block came from DD

Oh my god this is shaping up quite awesomly, I can't wait to see what that Presler will do with a proper custom water cooling setup like yours. Since you seem to be made of money (lol) are you going to get a X1900XTX now that they are out on newegg?
