Rated 4 out of 5 by ThaYorkshireLadd Great for a bay res
I bought this to replace a tube res that had started to leak due to the fitting holes becoming threaded from excessive loop adjustments, and also to save space in my case interior (the cause of my readjustments).
It looks very smart and a lot more expensive than it is when installed, being the only front panel device in my coolermaster 690iii case.
It takes a lot of effort to fill and bleed the loop though, the default holes on the back for inlet are spaced a little too close together, and the inlet is a bit too high when using a top mounted rad, so air often either gets sucked back through your pump or naturally migrates back in the top rad once the pump is turned off.
That's an issue that can be mitigated by keeping the res fully filled and a fill line attached to the top port, but that almost defeats the object of having a reservoir in the first place.
Looks sweet with the 4 predrilled 5mm LED holes occupied, not quiet as uniform as the pictures (maybe that's the LEDs I've used) but still very pretty!
