Well the one that I have is just like this just the Danger Den version of it. Aren't all radiators like this?

A T-line is less restrictive than a reservoir, but they are both so small, that's really a non-issue.

It really comes down to how many times do you have to turn your PSU on/off to get the loop filled all the way up, and finally on that initial setup, it might take a day or two to completely bleed with a T vs. a few hours with the reservoir.

There is really no long term performance adavantage of either one, and comes down to personal preference.

I use T-lines for my system that doesn't get involved in testing because it's less clutter, but I use reservoirs and some big reservoirs for testing where I need the air to bleed right away. Testing is a whole nother thing though. If I had to wait a day or two between tests, it would take forever. But I could care less when my system is running untouched for a few months.
This makes a lot of sense +rep, thanks bud. I like learning new things

I ride bareback/no case with both AMD/C2D Quad and run an external WC system with a 3.2 litre dual inlet reservoir and dedicated psu.
It's easy drain and quick bleed, as long as the water level exceeds the res inlet height.

But, as Martin stated, testing WCing parts doesn't favor 24/48 hour bleeding time. If you/I were building an in case system, I think I'ld go
with T-Line drain on the pump outlet and extended the line out the back/bottom of the case, whichever provided the most convenience ATM.

I used to use a T but I now use a swiftech micro res and its pretty much amazing. Entire system bleeds in about 15min as opposed to 12-24hrs. That's every little bubble in the system. Doesn't hurt my flow at all.
