My System Specs

Default Bay Res. Vs. Tube Res. for dual loop

well, right now I'm starting to design a new dual loop. Since I'm also building the case I would like to hear some opinions on reservoirs.

I want two parallel loops, 1 loop for two 4870x2's (likely 5970's in the next few years) and a physx card. The other loop cpu, mobo, ram. With the large space I have, mounting 2 480 rads at the top isn't a problem.

So I can design the case to have 2 extra 5.25 slots for a 2x 5.25 reservoir, but I also have enough room to mount 2 individual tube reservoirs.

Some of the 2x5.25" I've been looking at are;
XSPC Dual 5.25" Bay - DDC Dual Pump / Dual Split Reservoirs
Koolance RP-452X2 Dual 5.25" Reservoir

I'm leaning towards the 2x5.25" bay reservoirs that include pump mounts since I like keeping things neat and symmetrical, with the two tube reservoirs they would be tucked into corners and not seen well anyways and still have to run tubing to the pumps.

if you got this far, thanks for reading and let me know what you think.
