Don't get a reservoir, stick with the t-line.
Ok, then Thats what I'll do.

Also is this worth it?

I wouldn't mind the 5 bucks if it really gives me some benefit.

Not sure why you have T line and reservoir equipment on your list...
The additive that aspire recommended isn't enough? And i thought I could buy some distilled water locally. If not I don't mind, I want to make sure this all works after all.

I need to ask aspire if i need this radbox, because he told me of a way to do it without it I think. It looks like the same thing, except his method destroys a cheap fan and costs less .

I was confused with the T line and reservoir, i was reading a lot of xtremesystems stuff and added it by mistake.

Thanks, I'll keep this thread up to date I guess (I have a feeling people enjoy when I make nub mistakes ), I should have money coming in soon, I just got a few emails and calls and it appears I will be working soon! yay. When you make a thread I'll be sure to drop in.

Exactly my thinking for getting this! Don't forget the awesomeness of it and the noise factor, although my rig is pretty quiet now.

The Quad insert will probably give you some benefit.

All you need to do is buy the PT Nuke additive and a half gallon jug of distilled water from your local supermarket.

And yes, my method basically replaces the radbox. By my logic, why pay 20 bucks for something a four dollar fan from petras can do with about 5 minutes of work and a dollar in nuts and bolts.

I also think mine gives it a cleaner look and creates a tunnel effect so that pressure form the internal fan makes it all the way to the radiator and is pushed through.

In terms of radiators/reservoirs. You only need one or the other, I find that reservoirs take up extra space, cost more, ruin the anti bacterial abilities of the black tubing. On the other hand they make bleeding a lot quicker and don't need to be refilled as often.

I'm a reviewer for a website and may be doing some comparisons on some new blocks that aren't out yet.
actually the xspc edge beats the stock fuzion on dual cores.

For quads the Fuzion with nozzle is unbeatable though

On a completely seperate but related note. How much voltage does a waterpump and say 10 fans usually pull?

you mean how many watts?

Well if you get a DDC Ultra, that uses 18W, and if you get 10 yate loons that draw approximately .3A each then they would draw about 36W at full tilt.

So about 54W total

How often am I going to have to refill?

I know your probably not talking to me, but I think my 800W should be able to handle this new add on.

Well thats an easy one 12V

I think what you meant to ask was how many Watts/Amps.

A Laing D5 pump draws about 1.4A or about 17W

Your average fans draws between .2 and .5 amps or between 2.4 and 6 Watts

In regards to the XSPC block, I think it's ugly as sin, and to be good on a single physical core/dual core cpu is not incredibly hard... It's cooling two separate physical cores adjacent to each other where things get tricky.

Make sure the fans has open corners as in the holes where the screws go are not tubes. Otherwise you might run into problems mounting it.

By refilling I mean topping it off. Usually need to add some coolant every couple months.

both of which are completely irrelevant to my statement

Well, your statement is irreverent as Drizzt uses a quad core...

The fan in my tuniq is this one

120mm Yate Loon D12SM-12 Case Fan - Black (70.5 CFM, 33 dBA) = The one fan in my tuniq.
