Designed specifically for the MCP35X pump, this optional reservoir features 2 inlet ports for parallel loop splitting, and 6 different body orientations for convenient tube routing; the reservoir can be rotated to align the inlet ports at 12 o'clock, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 o'clock.
Revision 2 of the MCP35X reservoir is now shipping. It supports compression fittings for up to 3/4" (tube OD) as shown in main image, and features an additional port inside of the fill-cap, that can be used to install a remote fill-port.
Rev 2b has a change in material. The fill cap has changed from chrome plated brass to black Delrin.
Secondary pictures show revision 1 for illustration.

I got this item, and it immediately cracked. I continued reparing it with glue until the leaking was bad, got ahold of Swiftech for a replacement and kept adding glue until it came. Swiftech took 3 months to ship me the replacement, multiple emails and calls on my part. The replacement lasted fine as far as cracks go, but more leaking happened at the bottom of the res, even though I properly installed the oring and torqued the screw. The leaking was bad enough that I had to add water almost every day, but took measures to keep my computer and the bottom of the pump dry. Finally failed after adding sealant to the bottom of the res, the water just went inside to the circuit board and fried it. Do not buy this, spend the money on a D5 and bay res combo from a good manufacturer that wont ship faulty products.

I thought that the cracking problems had been resolved, but unfortunately they have not. After running this reservoir for about three weeks, I have numerous cracks resulting in a very slow leak. It''s also worth mentioning that with a powerful pump, it is not a great reservoir for eliminating bubbles. Stay away from this res.
Cracking Problems HAS NOT BEEN SOLVED!05-17-2012

I got this last 02/25 along w/ the MCP35X pump, first issue I had is bleeding.. the pump is strong enough to suck in bubbles right back on and the reservoir isn''t tall enough as well. and second after 3months I planned on selling the pump and reservoir together and switch to a bay reservoir+pump combo instead but I noticed that there is some honeycomb like pattern appeared and some small cracks. at first I thought they were just scratches and the honey comb like patter is just dried up coolant, tried on wiping them down and they are not what I thought they are. its the acrylic being very fragile. this thing hasn''t been treated right to ensure that the cracking won''t happen. if you got the money and want the MCP35X pump, go for the FrozenQ Bay reservoir instead.. ignore this piece of crap.

previous customers who bought this complained about the acrylic cracking, that problem has been solved I believe as I haven''t seen any sign of this problem. on the other note, if you gonna pair this w/ MCP35X pump, the pump is pretty strong that getting it to pump water w/o mixing air bubbles w/ it is pretty impossible unless you run the pump at lower RPM. I would suggest getting a bigger reservoir for the liquid to go around before it goes thru the pump so that would remove the possibilities of air bubbles going thru the loop.

Well, this would be one hell of a nice res if it didn''t have one problem; it leaks. It not only leaks from the top, but from the side ports. I''ve tried changing fittings, o-rings you name it. When the system powers off, the excess pressure makes the top leak and the side fittings leak. I would not recommend this reservoir!
