My System Specs

Default In need of a *NICE* reservoir.

So I am doing a new build and going for the uber clean look. I really want to ditch the Swiftech res and go for something more stylish. I want something like the EK Res
Petra's Tech Shop

but am having problems finding it in stock. Anyone know where I can grab one or one similar (I've heard Koolance has a nice res).

Also I'd even consider one of those DDC tops with res built in. But I don't know of good ones.

Yup i have. Many times. As well as Petras. P-PCs declares a low value sometimes if you ask them to. Petras does it for me every time.

Love those EK ress, got 2 myself and another custom res. All waiting for my MM Ascension

Here is some eye candy.

Even petras is showing out of stock on a lot of the res's.

This is unfortunately the reason why I found a means to my own. It may not be pretty but it'll work for now till I can afford a proper one.

Yup, thats all your going to get from the states in my opinion, and plus the chance of getting slapped with customs is a threat also.

Jab tech in the US has some of the EK's in stock.
Reservoirs and T lines

Those above reservoirs aren't pretty to you?

Thanks for the Jab-Tech suggestion. Shipping was a good $30 cheaper than P-PC. Ordered me a EK-DDC X-RES 140 as well as a few other modding supplies.
