XSPC Plexi Bay Reservoir (Black)

Normally talking about a clear plexiglass box would be a reviewers nightmare! Thankfully the XSPC Bay Reservoir has some interesting features not seen in other reservoirs on the market.
Something I found rather strange was that XSPC have provided two places to insert an LED, both of which are in close proximity to each other. This could possibly be a design error as it would make more sense for the LED's to be placed at opposite sites of the res for better light distribution.
Both the inlet and outlets of the reservoir have some unique features to reduce bubbles and foam, the following quote is XSPC's explanation on how this works:
"The semi-circle around the outlet is to stop air being sucked from the top of the reservoir. It also lets the system keep running at a low water level. The guide from the inlet/return cuts down on the noise from splashing when a high powered pump is used."
