My System Specs

Default Typhoon III

Looks like a very promising D5 top/ Reservoir. Can't wait to try it out.
So far it includes the
-Res
-Plastic Compression fittings for various sizes
-D5 Mounting kit
-LEDs

Quite awesome for a reservoir. Anyone else currently using one?

The T3 really is one of those things were you stare it, think about it, then smack your head because it seems so obvious in hindsight. Kind of wish I had an excuse to try one myself.

Similar to the XSPC DDC dual-bay res that I want to get since I don't have a D5.

Though I really don't know why it was never thought of until just recently. It's such a logical way of doing things.

For sure. However it's not really compatible with HAF 932 bays, or any bays that have a 2 piece support bracket. When mounted properly, half of this thing still protrudes the case.

This is pissing my off quite badly heh

I spent a whole afternoon tweaking stuff...and found out I'm out of tubing

So far complaints
- Stock ghost compressions leak like no tomorrow
- One outlet on mine is strangely leaky, no matter what barbs.
- Bleeding it VERY difficult if you don't follow their instructions (tilt the case backwards). Very impractical since I have a rear mounted rad.

On a bright note, it looks good

have you tried teflon tape on the treads of the barbs before you install it? Wondering if that will help it seal? Although it wont look very nice on a clear res im sure.
