How Can I Connect the Reservoir?
The reservoir offers a total of seven G1/4" connections, 1x OUT and 6x IN. The connection possibilities are distributed on all sides. One IN is located on each side. Additionally, there are two IN on the top side which are mainly used for filling. One IN can be used directly for filling, while the second IN is used to allow air to escape more easily during the process.
What Mounting Options Does the Expansion Tank Offer?
On the bottom and on the sides, there are mounting holes that allow you to mount in the standard 2.5" hard disk space. As with a 2.5" SSD, the reservoir can be screwed to the bottom or the sides. If there is no corresponding mounting space available, a Velcro pad is also included.
Direct Radiator Mounting Is Possible!
