It's a Koolance Res/Pump designed for DIY systems like yours.

If you just need a Reservoir...

I've seen a number of people use EK Waterblock reservoirs.

http://ekwaterblocks.com/shop/index....2a&language=en

That's the link to their reservoir page on their site, choose the one that best suits you. Prices range from 29ish to around 60 dollars. ((Attempt to find an American Distributor of these reservoirs, as they seem to be based in Europe)).
Yeah, Ive already got dual D5 Danger den pumps ready, but I like that res.. only issue is mounting it. Since I'm limited on space, I'd probably need something in a bay, but I like their design.

Well, for the record, stand alone reservoirs is kind of outside my zone of knowledge, I just saw a lot of OCN users implementing those in their systems.

If you wanted to be a Cowboy, you could do some case modding and mount it on the outside of your case and run the tubing inside of it...but it's completely up to you.

Hmm.. well, Im trying to make things as sleek as possible, so the outside mod may not be an option, but thanks a load for the block suggestion, Imma get both those with the tube heh. Ill have to research more on Reses, thanks again!

Yes, in my opinion. Aluminum can be welded directly onto the piping of the radiator instead of using a third bonding material, like used in copper radiators, which, by the way, aren't even pure copper, they're copper and brass most of the time.



versus



The transitive property in the metals alone are 159W/mk for brass, versus 237W/MK for Aluminum. That's simple chemistry/thermodynamics talking in that scenario.

It's the same reason you don't dumb a gallon of thermal paste in between your heatsink/waterblock and your chipset, because it doesn't conduct thermal activity as efficiently.

I could be incorrect, that's why it's my opinion, but that's the basis of my argument. =]
