well you are talking to a guy who's used plumbing parts from home depot for most of his water loops. even turned an old hot water heater into a giant res/radiatorish thing for a house sized liquid cooling setup once. it was a pretty sweet rig

the way i look at it, if you have a lathe, a good saw for cutting copper, a blowtorch, some copper pipes, some solid irrigation piping from home depot and an aquarium aerator, you can do all sorts of wild mad scientist modding to your cooling loop. frankly, i like both the dummy loop and double res ideas... not a huge fan of sticking an aerator into an actual in use res, that said depending on the design of that res it might work just fine. though you probably will have to make your own res to make sure you're not sending air into your loop.

really i've always felt the fun of a liquid loop was always in the creativity/art of making something to be looked at.
