Btw, I was just kidding about not being able to figure oyt why you can't run 40W of fans on a 30W channel....but you hopefully know was kidding.

Dist is distributor, Pot controls mosfets, mosfets act like voltage controlled resistors and control the fans. Mosfets can handle WAY more current than a pot, like upwards of 60 amps of current.

Imagine how many 40 watt fans you could run off an array of those!

And yeah I was aware.

Anyone look at the image album I linked last page to try and see where the best place to put the tube reservoir (still don't know how I will check the levels with the case side on since it has no window) would be once I clean up the rat's nest somehow?

This will be the additive I add.

 

Main components so far:

Radiator: Alphacool NexXxoS ST30

Pump: DDC-1T (bought)

Reservoir: Bitspower Water Tank Z-Multi 250

Waterblock: XSPC Raystorm CPU Waterblock

Tubing: Primochill Primoflex LRT Tubing (Blood Red)

Fittings: ModMyToys Red Carbon Fiber Enhanced Compression Fittings

Fans: 4x Gentle Typhoon AP-14's (bought)

Some people say it's easier to bleed air out of the tube res vs a bay res but I I never had an issue with either style res in my experience.

As I said a few posts above it'd be a big help if someone could look at the images of the interior of my case and/or case specs and help me determine where the best reservoir position is and if not which reservoir I should get, having my doubts about tube reservoirs atm. If anyone wants to look at the rat's nest it's here though I'm sure you could find some cleaner examples than mine, somewhere.

If you want cheap, buy used parts from forums or sites like ebay.
You need to know what you are doing, but this allows to build decent setup at really low price.

For example, this setup: https://picasaweb.google.com/104030131291922028430/LianLiA7110LC02

There are 2 thick rads, 240, 480, bitspower full cover block, decent cpu block, 250mm tube reservoir, nice compression fittings, laing ddc pump.
Cost of all that, including every little piece i forgot to mention, and all shipping costs, was less than 300$.
New would be nearly 3 times as much.

Not sure how the used parts discussion enters this one, anymore but I asked about the reservoir.

The used parts came up because of the thread tittle.
And yes, you can re-use your res.

Reuse? I don't have one to begin with. I was asking for opinions on where to put a tube reservoir in my case.
