I would recommend the swiftech micro res for it's very good versatility.

But definitely do NOT get the radiator/res XSPC combinations. Aluminum = bad when in a watercooling loop.

what pump are you using, they make a great
resi that mounts on the laing 3.2

it combines the resi and the pump and has great head pressure.

The plexi bay res....That second one has aluminum in it, stay away from that or you will get galvanic corrosion, it will ruin you blocks and rad.....Galvanic corrosion

Do XSPC radiators have aluminum in them ?
post #6 of 7
Not the newer ones, that I know of anyway...That passive res of theirs does...You have to watch any of the European gear and watch out for aluminum in it and any that is optimized for 1/4" tubing...I think they are starting to use more 3/8" stuff now, all of it used to optimized for low flow 1/4" tubing, then when you mixed it with high flow gear like we use you would get crap temp's...

I have one of the single bay reservoir, it's really nice. It has internal baffles that prevent the bay reservoir from sucking air down the outlet when it's not completely full.
