IntroductionThe Thermaltake Aquabay M1 is a flow rate and water level indicator for your watercooling system.
It occupies two 5.25" drive bays and works best in conjunction with a Thermaltake BigWater system.
However, it is compatible to other watercooling systems, the instructions even have a paragraph dedicated to installation in 3rd party systems.

The build quality of the M1 feels very solid. I dont think there is any risk of leak, when properly installed. The included fittings use screws which hold the tubing tight and seal the connection well. I tried pulling the tubing off the fitting, without any success.
The included Teflon tape is required, if you decide to install the included extra fittings. It is wrapped around the thread of the new fitting, making sure that no water can run through the threading.
