hi,
i am setting up a watercooled pc with the latest hardware..what will bet the best reservoir for an extreme setup??
should it hold a lot of water or something??i mean should it be really big??
should i buy the danger den monsoon black reservoir??or should i buy the ek 400ml?or should i buy another better one??
my rig:
core i7 3960x oc'd to 4.5 ghz

g.skill 8x8gb
xfx amd radeon 7970 quadfirex,core oc=1260mhz,memory oc=1500 mhz

The reservoir is basically for filling, removing air, and monitoring fluid levels, you really do not need a massive reservoir for a standard water cooling loop, it adds no cooling capability.

Couple of T-Virus resses, nice capacity and the UV cathodes will help keep your water clean too

Check FrozenQ.com for other colours and lengths, as well as some bayres designs,
and XSPC do some bayresses for D5 pumps as well,

Will you be getting the D5 pump to go with that reservoir, it's designed to accept a D5 pump and the pump does not come with the reservoir, at least from where I found it?

As in, a top? No. The reservoir acts as the pump top when you mount it.

A top only works if you are installing a pump that isn't part of a reservoir like that.
