I would go for Primochill tubing over Feser, bend radius and it really is higher quality
If you have the pump already I wouldn't buy something else. Pumps aren't all that important in terms of performance. But I won't buy anything other than the MCP35X from now on. Being able to control my pump w/ Speedfan is really awesome.

As for tubing, I am not a fan of Primochill anymore. They have changed their tubing somehow recently and it plasticizer is a real problem with it. Unfortunately I don't know any other tubing that doesn't have this problem.

The Scythe fans cool very well but for me, the noise is intolerable. Great for open-air rigs but in a case? Jets.

As said above, you get these fans close to mesh and they start howling, I use nothing but scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-14/15 as long as they are made(and long after because they never die). Also colermaster R4's are the best low cost fan, but again very loud next to mesh or rad fins, have to pay for silence :) cougar makes a fan close to a GT AP-15 for a lower cost.

I'm another person who's moved from Scythes to Gentle Typhoons. The GT's are half as noisy as the Scythes at the same RPM.

Looks like I will probably get the Gentle Typhoons.

Question about reservoirs are the custom FrozenQ Liquid Fusion 250's worth the money for that extra blind with the CCFL and double helix in them?

Only worth it if you prefer the look, I myself prefer a res top sitting on the pump.

FrozenQ has a bad rep when it comes to quality control and even worse customer service.

Would their double helix fit in the EK tube style res?
