A reservoir doesn't really increase the cooling capability, but because of the added water volume your temperature fluctuations are minimized.

Not still your thread but what with the foam in your cpu loop? Well it looks like foam.

The EK reservoirs have threads in the top where you can screw a Fill Port onto if need be, just like you can on the Micro Reservoirs!

See right of picture:

A res makes bleeding a lot easier and the micro res is better than having a T line. I do like to see them at the highest point of the loop. I have a 1 gallon external.

yup i know that but the price of buying the fitting and the fill port and stuff comes out to be more than the micro res itself...so it would be easier for me to buy the micro res and the res I have right now is sitting outside my case(it looked good at first but not anymore) the micro res would allow me to move everything inside except for the rad and would then also allow me to place the rad before my cpu WB therefore gettin better temps
