Pump and Reservoir
I'm not intending to start this review off on a bad foot, because honestly overall I'm pleased with the product. The reservoir and pump assembly just happens to be the area of the liquid cooling system that I find to be weakest. The reservoir, which I would call a tank design, is basically intended to just sit inside of the case somewhere. The pump, which is affixed to the reservoir via a solid metal and plastic tube, has much the same styling. There are slots on the sides of the pump base which could be construed as mounting brackets, but I have yet to find an effective way to mount the pump and attached radiator in any way that I found safe, reasonable, or aesthetically pleasing.
The pump and reservoir are very plain and simple, with no flash, flow indicators, fluid level monitoring, (unless you call extremely dark tinted "translucent" plastic stuffed inside a dark computer "visible") or bonus features. The pump gets power through either a 4 pin Molex or a standard fan connector.
The biggest problem with this setup, though, is how difficult it is to customize. Personally, I would like to get a 5.25 inch bay reservoir with a flow monitor, temperature gauge, and easy fluid level viewing. Unless I want to also replace the pump, however, this presents a challenge. Because of the way the reservoir connects to the pump, the only way to really swap out the reservoir is to, instead, use 3/8'' plastic tubing unceremoniously stuffed inside the solid metal "tube thing". There is no barb, or screw down connector, or anything that gives you even the slightest bit of confidence that it won't leak all over your PC, desk, and carpet. While I successfully ran with a configuration like that mentioned above for a couple of months, I eventually gave up on it.
