    I dont like that blurred glass type... I know that pump is very silent but good enough for CPU block alone.

    Reservoir / Pump Combo Unit, pump not included.

    A pump-ready combo unit for a Windows 8-ready computer. Be sure to pick up a HD-ready screen and 3D-ready video card.

    Go to their website. You can buy it with or without the pump.

    Nice to see the inlet/outlet mounted low on the res- easier on the fill/flush maintainance.
    Still wouldn't lure me away from a tank reservoir.

    I like everything but the circles on the plexi, I think it looks fantastic on GPU blocks, but I really don't see this matching well with most if any of peoples themes on the front of a case.

    I kinda like the idea. I guess they thought something like: Hey there's about 17 centimeters behind this tray let's use that space up for something. And combnied the two. I like the effort. Aesthetics not so much :D

    I am not into water cooling, but these circles are getting ridiculous. I think even pink unicorns would be better... I guess their marketing department is dead. Circles FTL.

    Circles aside, this could save a lot of room and mounting time. First hand experience mounting an EK res and MCP655 pump is a bitch.

    I don't understand why people are so butthurt by these fucking circles... They do not look bad at all and if you really cannot stand them, mod it!

    ya sounds like a great idea... MOD IT! :banghead:

    buy a $100+ piece of hardware and sand the face off it before you even get it all the way out the box. :slap:

    OR just buy something that isn't so ugly to start. Tons of other options... this shouldn't be on any list.

    Also looks is personal opinion... don't get so "butthurt" if you don't like what someone else has to say.

    If you like it then rock it :rockout: and that is your choice.
