Firstly, looks are subjective (although yes, the Koolance does look quite good), secondly, this has a built in temp sensor ans lastly it comes with a uv light, which is kind of handy.

Like the flexible solution. Like all the returns. Never liked any pump besides D5.

Yeah, go read about all the bleeding issues too. I had one of the DDC models and it was a PITA to bleed, even with the kit. I am glad koolance did a bay res, it made a lot of other companies jump into res/pump combo's, but they were an early design with flaws. With this model, Swfitech took what everyone else did and went further with the temp sensor. The only thing I wish it had was anti-vibration mounts since the MCP35x can be loud at full blast.

Anyways, this looks awesome Gabe, you guys did a great job with it.

i wonder if it'll still fit in 2 drive bays if you put the heatsink on it. . .

I seriously doubt it. Because you have the heatsink and if you want to mount an 80x15 fan, its going to dip into the third bay a little.

I really like the look of it. Looks a lot better than the XSPC Bay res I have right now.

I'd just like to commend you on a beautiful reservoir !!! If I had any open bays in my case I'd buy one. I suppose I'll just have to wait until I build a new computer, next year thumb.gif

Also, I'd just like to say that I've had nothing but positive experiences with your company and will remain a loyal customer because of it. Someone mentioned that the price was a little high and I can see why they'd say that, but honestly you can't put a price on quality products and customer service. You guys go above and beyond and I thank you!

I thought Skoobs had an amazing idea. He mentioned integrating a fan controller into this unit, that increases fan speed by the temperature of the water. I think this would make the unit extremely bulky and hard to sell because of the price, but what if you guys were to make a fan controller, as a seperate unit, that could be wired into a reservoir like this to read its water temperature and adjust accordingly? I'd buy both of those in a heartbeat !! What are your thoughts on something like that Gabe?

Hallo Gabe from swiftech,

Nice interesting reservoir over there! I saw this one on a dutch news article.. on hardware.info!
I like it very much. And in my opinion its almost the best i have found!..

But iam still have some question about this `thing`..

Most manufacturers make a reservoir like this.. and i red about those to.. What me concerns is if it reduces the sound / vibrations of the pump(s)..
Like the reservoirs from koolance.. I red that the could vibrate the whole case.. because there isnt any damping of vibrations from the pumps to the reservoir and to te case..

I like the idea of the pumper underneat the reservoirs, because some cases really lacks of space..or i dont want to remove a rack or something because i maybe need it to use..

Now i have some questions for you...

- Is that fill plug `open` er not? If i look on your pictures it look its `open`. But i dont like that.. Because if the case falling.. Then the water / coolant can get out and ruins the whole system..

- Is it possible with does 2 pumps the use then seperate for dual loops?? Or can it only be used with one or two pumps in one loop?

- Is there any anti vibrating solution on this reservoir, that stops the noises of vibrating of the pumps to the reservoir en then further to the case it self..


If there comes in the future an update version, could it having a anti-vibrate sollution, and is it possible to damping the noise of the pumps in a 2 x 5.25 inch solution..

And redundancy. If one pump fails, you still have a flow, so no critical for you cpu or gpu...

Looks great, I like the modular capabilities.

I suppose if someone was really interested in pump decoupling and they had extra space, they could create a downward pointing reservoir barb, use a piece of soft surgical tubing and then suspend a DDC pump below. Unlike integrated pump top reservoirs, this does provide a few more mod/mounting options and possibilities.smile.gif
