Looks good mate, though I'm not a big fan of bay res's myself.

Neither am I frag but this is easily one of the few bay res's I recommend. It's very well made.

Man that is sexy as I was impressed that the bubble removal feature actually worked, instead of being some sort of non-performing novelty. And 8 min is so much more acceptable than the normal time required to expel/purge air from a water loop. Great review as usual Jim

Yes it's very effective. As the water is only ever pulled from the very bottom of the reservoir, none of the bubbles/foam at the top of the res is sucked back through.

I have the DD Res that Jim didn't like and that's pretty nice too. Setting up a loop is far easier with a res and takes a whole lot less time.

I like that Res - not too sure about the XSPC logo tho

It would be nice to see a version of this res that comes with an interchangable front, so you could effectively insert some black/silver card into the front of the reservoir with whatever design on it you liked *thinks OC3D logo *

Yeah the DD is a nice looking res too Kemp, for sure. Is there any volume difference between the two? The XSPC logo is a little iffy too, but I like the fluid level bar. Although I'm sure it wouldn't take too much effort to remove the logo and replace it with some self made logo out of coloured contact adhesive. On a side note Kemp, the DD res that you have; is it manufactured with screws and glued perspex panels or is it just glued. I'm worried about potential splitting and leakage?
