Never feel for bay reservoirs... I think they look foreign to case design.

Try to use thicker o-ring for leaking outlet. Teflon is not good...

I liked the idea as my PC will be under my desk, so the display of the water level will be nice. Ive noted that about the teflon, we used it in plumbing oil lines and works a treat, i wont use it on the pc tho :D

I wonder how easy it is to bleed. I am also wondering if it would cause any case vibration when bolted up. Very smart design.

*edit* Doh... Okay I read the post of the leaks and it being hard to bleed. Did not see it.

Sounds like Primochill...

Only thing I'll buy from them is tubing. I hated their normal ghost barbs since they started leaking a couple months down the road. So I'm not really surprised, and well who makes a compression fitting out of clear plastic? The have such tension on them that it needs to be metal IMO.

It's not the threading that's leaking, instead it's a widely addressed problem that some barbs have too wide of a base, or too thin of an O-ring for the T3. The sockets have a indent around them apparently, so I'm waiting for more bitspower fittings which are reported to work well.

The best o-rings are on Swiftech barbs.

Yep they don't cheap out on O-rings, but the Bitspower ones are equally as good

This is pissing my off quite badly heh
I just got one too, it is a pain in the butt for the HAF but I just bent down the tabs (carefully) slid it in and used the 2 mounting screws on the right side and used some foam inbetween the res and case to snug it up, fits nicely and appears to be solidly in place but I won't know until I go to fill it, which won't be until next weekwhen the rest of my parts get here.

Just took a couple of quick pics of the test fitting
