    probably because it can barely hold any liquid.you would have to fill it 9001 times to fill you loop

     

    The loop would fill at same rate, regardless if you fill it through a reservoir or any other component.

     

    The primarily benefits of using a Reservoir?

     

    1. They can provide air bleed hole, which makes bleeding air from your loop easier.

    2. Allows you to visually monitor level, current state and condition of the fluid.

    3. Can provide drain hole at bottom.

     

    Otherwise, a reservoir isn't a necessity in a loop. 


  2. Thank you guys! I had to shelve progress on this build to get two other commissioned builds finished

    Took everything out last night to re-evaluate where I left off on this project. The last stage was mounting the EK reservoirs to emulate the rear fuel tanks in Max's Interceptor. I'm debating about making a roof line over the middle section of the case or hood with blower cut-out to cover the front. I know either would involve several hours of trial and error fitting. That time could be re-focused on progression of other thing on the build. That's a perfect example of being a victim to your own project scope creep.

    Mosquito and I  share the do-it-yourself steps in modifying the Fractal Design S2 case with Lambo Door style side panels. These doors have also been described as Butterfly doors or Super car style scissor doors.
