Why do you want to do this? I can only see negatives in doing this...
  • The falling water from the top inlet will create turbulence and add air bubbles
  • Could end up with more oxygen dissolved in your water which could mean higher production of cupric oxide at points of very high restriction. http://www.realredraider.com/vbullet...ad.php?t=11373
If the reservoir is sealed once the small amount of oxygen contained within it is consumed no more will enter. This shouldn't be a problem unless you plan on leaving your fillport open to the air.

here is a horribly painted picture


IMHO, it won't work too well as the fill point is lower than the inlet for the GPU.

I would swap the fill point and the GPU inlet.



The build log "Silentium"'in my sig uses the same reservoir. If you are interested take a look at the pics that show the loop configuration.
