I just had a look at RS components too
Similar pricing, I've got one just down the road from me and they are pretty good order stuff in the next day from Sydney if they don't have it
Sorry I should have mentioned I contacted mouser via email and obtained a significantly better shipping quote, I was in a rush when i replied due to work.
I did up a quote a few minutes ago on rs-online and the amount I paid at mouser was $5 cheaper.
That being said I wasn't aware of rs-online being locally based, it may have arrived sooner, I'll bookmark it for next time

This is one epic build. Can't wait to see it finished!!!
Thanks for the subs
I read a lot of remarks about Durelene tubing in the plasticizer thread
suggesting it is yellow, or opaque. Perhaps this is the case when it contains fluids but personally I can't see the difference between Durelene and Tygon 3603 except that the 3603 bends much easier from the added plasticizer.
It's dusk here (hence the shadows), but even earlier with more light without picking up and feeling the softer tube Its hard to know the difference. I'm not a plastics expert, but having no plasticizer in my loop can only be a good thing.
If I get some time later I'll put some fluids and dyes in some for a better comparison.
P.S both are brand new samples that have been cleaned with distilled water and never used in a loop.

Now on to something I'm really annoyed about.
I guess I should have known better than to think a $79USD pump/reservoir combo from XSPC was a good plan.
I found a bit of time and thought why not mock up the front panel and found this...
The reservoir is larger than the drive bay's its specifically made for. I thought perhaps mountain mods bays were smaller, but to my dismay the same is true for a HAF-X Case.
Now this may not bother some people but I want everything to be straight. So the way I see it I have a few options.
1) Changeover to 2 x Koolance RP-452X2 Rev.2.0
2) Changeover to 2 x Bitspower dual x d5 pump top and use 2 x EK CSQ Bay Spin reservoirs.
3) Changeover to 2 x EK dual d5 top and use 2 x EK CSQ Bay Spin reservoirs.
4) Try the 'Y' design of the Alphacool dual bay twin d5 reservoir. (Yeah that's not going to happen)
5) Attempt to shave the plexi from the sides of the XSPC and create a clear reservoir without a face plate (not ideal)Edited by soth - 10/19/12 at 2:36am
