I don't know if you want to know about the cylindrical specifically, but Ihave the EK dual bay res and I love it. It looks awesome and doesn't leak.

I love mine, just make sure it has an anticyclone thingy in it.

If not you'll have a water tornado thats noisy.

I prefer tube over bay reservoir.

How do you mount it in the case, is is secure enough that if the case gets knocked it wont tip over?

Clamps.

As long as the reservoir is sealed no water will leak out.

ek multioption res comes with these.. you can tighten it so it's very secure



you will have to drill a hole in the case though, to install the holders

Whatever you choose, get the one with two inlets. It'll save you a hell of hassle down the line.
