Installation will of course vary greatly from loop to loop. Ours is as simple as it gets, but will show any potential strengths or weaknesses of the reservoir.
The first thing we did was attach a pair of ½ barbs to the two open ports of the reservoir. These threaded on no problem, good machining by XSPC.
Next we pre-threaded on one of the mounting screws into our case to attach the reservoir.
With the tubing attached to the barbs, we simply held the reservoir in place and threaded in the screw. One thing to note, the reservoir can only be attached from behind. Keep this in mind when planning your build.
With the reservoir in place we simply hooked up the inlet and outlet directly to our pump. Indeed a very simple but effective loop.
With the loop assembled now you need to insert the LED into the base of the reservoir. There is an O-ring included to help secure the LED to the reservoir.
Slip the O-ring into the LED hole, then insert the LED. The LED is capped with a molex plug, simply hook that up to an open one from your power supply.
