And drop your micro res/standard XSPC top. In testing the reservoir top performs better, it saves you some space, and it's a lot cheaper since the res top alone is cheaper than a top/res pair, and you don't need to buy as much tubing/as many barbs and clamps.

I just got it for the watercooling set-up I bought for my i7 system.
Two birds with one stone, works for me

I might have to externalize the majority of the setup, I don't think I have enough room for everything in my case, considering the two GTX280's consuming a large portion of the room... Maybe if I were to remove one of the HDD mounting cages...?

Only problem is as a reservoir its not very efficient and takes a while to bleed and fill compared to other reservoirs lol

Yah I never seen that res top. Looks pretty good. I must say that bleeding it looks to be one of those kick-yourself-in-the-butt-for-getting-it but would be a welcome upgrade to take out the reservoir and save space in the case

It's technically the most effective top, according to martin's testing:

As you can see, the res top comes out on top in every case. There is also a youtube video:


It's pretty neat

Well, I convinced the company I work for that a water cooling system would boost my productivity, so they're paying for it!

Now that I really look at it, that reservoir top doesn't look like it'd be good at bleeding since the barb's on the top (Right?). I think the separate Swiftech MCRES would be a better idea, wouldn't it? As I just said, price is no longer a problem.

OK, I think I have my layout figured out... I'll put the DDC-3.2 with the XSPC Reservoir Top (The convenience is undeniable) on my desk next to the case behind my monitor, then I'll have the tubing curve around the back through the first tubing opening (Stock with the case) and go into the FuZion v2, from there it'll go back out of the case through the second opening and up into the MCR320-QP that I'll just have to rest on top of the 140mm fans on the top of my case; I don't think there's anywhere I can actually mount it on my case. From there it'll go back down into the DDC-3.2.
