The reservoirs of the aqualis series feature a tube made from borosilicate glass, featuring, unlike the common Plexi reservoirs, very high hardness and scratch resistance paired with low thermal expansion and excellent chemical and thermal resistance.
An outer diameter of 75mm and a wall thickness of 5mm ensure high capacity and sturdiness of the reservoir. Bottom and top piece of the aqualis series reservoirs is made from Delrin, a nickel plated brass tube connects them. An optical highlight is the integrated water column effect: If the middle thread is used as the inlet, the coolant will flow through the brass tube to the top of the reservoir and exit via the eight openings, resulting in a great effect especially in combination with lighting.
A thin Plexi plate near the bottom of the aqualis effectively reduces the amount of air being sucked back into the cooling loop to a minimum. Alternatively a thread at the side of the reservoir can be used as the inlet, directing the flow of coolant through the bottom of the reservoir. For this configuration a deflection plate is included, ensuring effective de-aeration of the coolant.
The aqualis XT reservoirs also feature the bottom Plexi window and space for installation of up to 6 LEDs (type 5mm).
A fill level sensor with USB and aquabus interface, a configurable alarm channel and an external temperature sensor input is also included.
For monitoring and configuration the software aquasuite is available for download. A 4-pin aquabus interface allows direct connection to an aquaero 5 (not included). The alarm output can either be configured as an artificial rpm signal for connection to a fan channel with speed monitoring (e.g. Mainboard fan channels) or as a switching channel for e.g. activating a LED in case of an alarm. For alarm monitoring besides the measured flow rate and water temperature, an external temperature sensor input is available. The external temperature sensor input is compatible with all temperature sensors offered by Aqua Computer.
All versions are also available with a Nano coating which lets water drip off of the inner wall of the glass tube. Features Technical specifications:

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.

Anybody who has been near their share of computer systems will appreciate that not all systems make the same amount of noise. There are a number of reasons for why this is so. Firstly, a computer makes noise for different reasons. Generally, anything mechanical is going to make noise.
