I just my opinion but stay away from any type of colorant specially Mayhems Pastel, just run distilled water and some clear DYE.

Looks like the duraclear comes in 3/8 x 5/8 as well (9.5x15.9) which is the same size as the zmt stuff I use with ek acf fittings (10x16mm).

Relayed topic, how is the duraclear vs primochill lrt when it comes to plasticizer, clearness, fading, staining?

Love that build bd. thumb.gif

On a related note I am in the process of finalizing my build components for my Sponsored build. I know exactly what I want so over the summer I will be compiling them and hope to be finished by September early October at the latest. I've got enough(12') of acrylic hardline Monsoon(1/2"x5/8") tubing. I actually had no real problems with bending so decided to stick with Acrylic over PETG. White though so clarity is not a concern. Should look sweet with Black Monsoon Economies EV2 fittings etched with Imperial insignias and Ryzen Logos between them. cool.gif

On the top of a recommended Reservoir, I must suggest maybe looking at the Monsoon MMRS system. You can build it up in any configuration your heart desires. With or without the pump included in the end design. thumb.gif

I second the recommendation of PrimoChill Advanced LRT tubing. I've used the Crystal Clear and the colored versions, with no problems.

Thanks! The Primochill Advanced LRT is what I have in mind but then it is not compatible with they Mayhems Pastel according to @Mayhem . So what are my other plasticizer-free options other than the EK ZMT?

I really like the mayhems tubing. It's also cheaper than the primochill.

I want to say 13/16" but despite drilling a gob of them... I can't say 100%. If you use a step-bit (which is highly recommended) just check it after each step once you get close. The holes in the CaseLabs accessory mount bars are just slightly too small and they are 3/4" diameter holes.

I'd say a reservoir is a reservoir for the most part - go by size, style, brand, cost, type - whatever seems to go best with your build. They're not even necessary at all, but they do make bleeding (and to a lesser extent filling/draining) your loop easier. You can even roll your own as several have done using their favorite liquor bottle. wink.gif

It's 20mm. or for imperial folks, 25/32"

Sorry for the wrong information, Mayhems NORMAL Pastel is compatible with Primochill Advanced LRT but not with Mayhems Pastel EXTREME. Link here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1286896/mayhems-users-club/14630#post_25971104

I just my opinion but stay away from any type of colorant specially Mayhems Pastel, just run distilled water and some clear DYE.

 

I understand how some people are against the Mayhems Pastel but there should be no issues with the loop as long as you do due dilligence in cleaning the loop (especially the rads) before filling it with such coolant. As a first time water cooling system builder, I've did my research and concluded that I use Pastel :) But that's another topic for a different time.

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll make sure to look into the Mayhems tubing.

Lol, ok. Do you know which WC brands make glass reservoirs? So far, I only see EKWB, XSPC, and Aquacomputer. EKWB does not sell standalone glass reservoirs that are small though.

Watercool as well - though hardly cheap the heatkiller reservoirs are some of the most attractive IMO... however they are one of the ones my previous comments regarding the BP clamps do not apply to - you have to use their custom mounts or craft your own. Their mounts aren't bad however - ~$16 or so... but the reservoir will run $70-90 so all depends on what you're going for.

I did check on those too but I'm not sure if they have a multi-top version. Do they?

 

In the reference pic you've posted (the one with the BP clamps), what reservoir was used? I also noticed that the separate BP water tank mount that you can buy are these: https://www.bitspower.com.tw/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=171_187&products_id=2495 but the included ones in their reservoirs are the clamps that you've linked: http://www.performance-pcs.com/bitspower-water-tank-z-multi-compact-150-black-acrylic-version.html . So I can't buy the clamps alone?
