I've always been one for using the T-line method when setting up water cooling in my PC's. The big disadvantage to this method is that it can be a right pain to fill the loop and also takes several hours to entice the bubbles out. Let's see if the XSPC reservoir makes my life any easier!
During the first run of the loop I left the cap off of the reservoir to allow for air bubbles to escape. After just over 8 minutes of continuous running, the coolant was running clear and no air bubbles could be seen or heard flowing through the pump, which is a massive improvement over using a T-line setup.
Reservoirs I've owned in the past have had a tendency to make 'sloshing' sounds when used in conjunction with a high powered pump. I'm pleased to say that the XSPC Bay Reservoir does not suffer with this problem to the extent of other manufacturer's reservoirs.
