I think I might just get it anyway, knowing the nickel might fail and I might have to RMA. I can always swap my H100 back in and run integrated graphics for a bit.
With the filler cap, will I have to add an extra set of tubing and where exactly does it go? On the back...? I know it goes in that bay res, I just can't envision where to plug that thing in.
If the nickel fails, you can't RMA. They won't accept it, they'll just tell you that you had something in your loop you weren't supposed to use.
Primochill tubing has some hideous plasticizer problems right now, and some signs are pointing towards silver kill coils making it even worse. Try durelene and some mayhem dyes. Durelene is proving to stay clean in a properly set up loop and mayhem is mayhem, awesome all around.
Some things to note:
Not all dyes work with an XSPC dual bay resevoir. The way the pump is situated inside can cause some dyes to separate.
If you stick with the XSPC resevoir with pump, the XSPC kits are pretty cheap, and the raystorm CPU block is one of the best performers out there, while the EK supremacy is highly restrictive.
If you put distilled water in any EK product, your warranty is voided.
Oh, and you've got two pumps in that last shopping list. Why?
