    Just a double sided barb like sneeky said that would work just fine for you mount it anywhere in the case that it fits ;)

    threads are all the same (G 1/4). Advantage to a thicker one, style, personal taste, easier to handle? Just letting you know there are thicker ones too;)

    still contemplating. i notice some of you guys don't use optical drives any more. is USB the new thing for installing OS these days? that would give me the option of a single drive bay res.

    looks pretty sharp and stands up. only 116mm tall 50mm diameter. just wondering how it compares to bitspower and ek in quality. looks good though.
    any other opinions on this?
    Thx

    Looks like i am going to be going with Koolance.Just found out they have a reservoir that was made for the top on the uber655 and it fits right on it. the pump top is the base of the reservoir.
    how bout that:]
