Hey guys ordering a few more parts for my loop and I can't decide between these 2 reservoirs:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13...l=g30c97#blank

or

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14..._pc=2313#blank

I have seen some threads on the QC on the phobya black nickel/nickel res but honestly I think it looks better. What you guys think?

I'm using the phobya 150 and have no complaints though I have heard the plating isn't always good mine is fine

Id go with the bitspower, and if you have nickle and copper in the same loop it can cause corrosion.

Just my opinion though

nickle and copper don't cause corrosion, aluminium and copper will though

I decided to polish the fingerprints off my black nickel Phobya 150. It's a really nice copper colour now but it tarnishes easily. If you get one avoid polishing.

^Haha sorry about your polishing experience but thanks for the info! +rep

I actually prefer it copper coloured but it needs lacquering to stop it tarnishing.

Well I mean I'd be buying it for the sick black nickel!

I'd go for the Bitspower. I prefer their brand, they tend to make higher quality stuff. Plus it looks better in my opinion.
