Aqualis PRO 450ML Watercooling Reservoir from Aquacomputer
All reservoirs of the aqualis series are equipped with a borosilicate glass tube. In contrast to acrylic glass, which is often used for tube reservoirs, borosilicate glass is extremele hard and scratch-resistant, features superb thermal and chemical resistance and a very low thermal expansion. The glass tube of the 450 ml and 880 ml variants has an outer diameter of 75 mm and a wall thickness of 5 mm. Base and top of the aqualis reservoirs are made from Delrin and connected by a stainless steel tube. As a optical highlight, a fountain effect can be realized. If the return line is connected to the center connector of the reservoir, the water flows through the stainless steel tube to the top of the reservoir, where it is ejected through eight nozzles. In combination with illumination, this is a real eye catcher effect. A thin acrylic plate near to the bottom of the reservoir reduces air ingestion to a minimum. Alternatively, the return line can be connected to a lateral connector of the reservoir, the water then exits directly from the base part. For this configuration, a deflector plate is included in delivery to ensure can be installed to effectively remove air from the water circuit.
The aqualis PRO 450/880 ml variants additionally feature an acrylic window in the base part and up to six LEDs (5 mm size) can be installed into the base part. The PRO variants can be upgraded with an electronic fill level sensor at a later date.
All 450 ml variants are also available with nano coating that will cause water to roll off the inner surface of the borosilicate glass tube. Features Technical details:

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.
