Hey, I only threw it in there cause it's new and some have never seen it. It does have the same ability to put a down spout. Swiftech changed their lids, so no more down spout option.

The one XSPC to I saved from my original DDC testing has yet to be outperformed though.

Either way going to give good results I would think performance wise. I would suggest choosing based on other factors.
I agree. Most of the standalone reservoirs loose the flow energy the pump creates. By having the return directed into the inlet, the pump runs more efficiently. The side return cause turbulence and air bubbles when the flow return is too high.

For me, I'm using a single Bmaverick DDC-1 pump in a XSPC 5.25 bay reservoir (downspout design) on a RX360 rad, running a CPU, a dual GPU 6990 block and a 6970 block connected parallel with no flow or cooling problems.

Lol! Right?!?

You would be correct on both counts of that assumption sir Probably will get the 2nd in a week or two when I get my gpu block. I'm more interested in performance than just looks...but good looks would be nice too. Ya know, since it's all naked and stuff

Good to meet you, and thanks for your input. I've been reading your testing results extensively both here and at your site(s). Quite comprehensive, and very helpful. Thanks.

I think I'll end up saving the money by going with the XSPC, and invest in more fittings instead. Thanks everyone for the advice.
