I'm with Zubzero ... big reservoirs might look good to some but the idea that they help at all is a bit misleading.
The water running through your loop should be moving so fast that the water in the reservoir is exactly the same temperature as the rest of the loop. It certainly doesn't hold a volume of cool water for pump.
The extra volume of water would take longer to heat up if no cooling effect was being created by the radiators but that is their job. A loop with a larger volume of water might take a little longer to reach the balancing point of heating from components vs cooling provided by rads but it would only be in the order of minutes. When your computer is on for hours it makes no difference at all.
In my experience big reservoirs just provide more water to spill if you have any problems and for times when you are reassembling the loop and find a tiny leak its just more water you have to take out again before you can fix the problem.

How is that any different to what I said?
Big res are cool,that's why I use them.

Not to mention they are much easier for fill and bleeding.

I think the larger volume of water in the tube helps control the vortex too. with little water/liquid, its like turning on a blender w/ a bit of mix; its gonna fly if you don't put the top on! biggrin.gif

I have to say that although I didn't have it for my first tubing (Primochill... nuff said) when I replaced everything (with different CRAP but still better than PC) I wouldn't go back to the razor blade method ever again. Without a doubt the best thing with the tube cutters is "run trimming" with absolute ease. Before if I misjudged a run (and I usually do intentionally on the long side) I'd have to pull it back off the first fitting, trim the extraneous amount, remount and then test strain, etc. Now I can simply trim off the extra if necessary without even removing the tubing from the case and without putting any strain on the initial fitting or block it's attached to. smile.gif
To me that's a savings of at least 10 minutes... which in my book is worth way more than $6.
Awesome! rep+

Jumping into watercooling for some reason. Just flushed my rad with a Wix fuel filter (#33003). Worked real well deffinately worth the $5 to not spend 30 mins shacking my rad over the sink. Now I'm looking for a 5870 water block. Anyone get one laying around?

Might have to wait for Durelene or Primochill Advanced LRT to be available in Europe, and meanwhile buy some other clear tubing like Masterkleer PVC.

Durelene, Masterkleer and Vincon is the same tubing from the same manufacturer, Saint Gobain. You can get it in Europe no probs!

Edit* Good choice too. I've just been through the Tygon plasticizer HELL....

There's always the trip down to your local hardware store...

From personal experience, the stuff at the local hardware stores (US, Home Depot), tends to be stiff and will plasticize easily. I asked one of the employees and they said its just the way it is and its really meant for utility not show. Maybe there's something different in the hardware stores of Europe thumb.gif

I just asked my GF if she came with 1/4 threads...

...she looked at me with that "you're nuts" look and said she comes with whatever size fitting I came equipped with. Definitely larger than 1/4 thread. blushsmiley.gif lol
