As advertised
Exactly as shown in the photo. Works great so far. It would''ve been nice if had been pre-wired (I''m using mine to control the lights in my case) but other than that I have no complaints.

Does exactly as expected
It''s a small plastic funnel. Functions as advertised (although I find it amusing it costs as much as the one I bought to fill the oil in my jeep, which is ten times the size...)

Works Well
Works well. Emits the expected amount of illumination for a single LED bulb. I have mine installed in the top of my EK RES X3 reservoir. One thing they don''t mention here is that the since it acts as a plug, you can use it on the EK reservoir ports that require a extender (due to the port being recessed in the plastic) without the actual extender.

Excellent Product
I''ve been using this stuff for a few years now, and it''s always been an improvement over whatever came stock. It even made a difference in my old Fat PS3 console when that started overheating.

Solid pump.
I''ve had this running for just over a week, through a pair of EK VGA waterblocks, a 480mm rad, and the reservoir (I''ll add the CPU to the loop when I upgrade later). On the third setting I can just barely hear it when I open the case and get close to it. One thing worth mentioning though: Although the input/output ports are well tapped and I haven''t experienced any leaks even on the highest setting, they are tapped in PLASTIC. It''s a lot easier to strip these out while screwing the fittings in than if they were metal. Just something to keep in mind.

Hasn''t caused an issues thus far...
I''ve only had it in my loop for a week, bopping around near my reservoir intake, but it hasn''t caused any problems and the price is cheap for the supposed gains.

Moves air around?
It''s a fan, and it moves air around. However, it does it at a reasonable decibel level, in a reasonable volume, while looking very cool doing it. I''ve got 4 of em running in my 900D, and it looks pretty slick.

Some more though could have been put into the screws.
Well built, and effective at what it does. Small criticism directed towards the screws they include with it though. I''ve no issue with the actual threads or bit type, but the heads on the screws have a very small diameter, small enough to pass through some fans/case hole without catching. I purchased a separate set of M3 screws here instead (I needed more anyway, they only include enough for 4 25mm fans or 4 38mm fans)

The O-rings were a pain in the a**
The product itself works very well, with one small exception. To install on the two video cards, you have to remove the current G1/4 fittings adapter on both cards and replace with this. The original adapters are sealed onto the VGA waterblock with small O-rings set into a rounded rectangular groove. The O-rings themselves are circular, which means that as soon as you loosen the screws on the block they spring right out. You need to get them to sit in the grooves on this new dual-terminal block. This proved difficult. I''d cram em in, they''d spring back out. This was when the block was facing up, it never would''ve worked when I rotated it 90 or upside down to actually install it. And I didn''t want to wonder if it had un-seated itself after I''d started screwing it down, finding out later only once it started leaking. So, I started looking into using some sort of compound to help it stay in place. Super-glue or any sort of glue was out, I didn''t want to risk it getting into the sytem. Other sealants like that were out, I didn''t want it hardening up after application and restricting the movement of the O-ring. Finally, I came up with a solution: http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/moneysworth-best-mink-oil-185-g-0890258p.html#.U2Je4vldV1Z Yes, I live in Canada. Yes, I used Mink Oil for waterproofing leather and suede. Try not to laugh too hard. Minimal amount required, sticks the rings into the groove like glue, doesn''t dry out solid so it won''t get caught in the loop somewhere if any gets in, and the O-rings were still free to move around as necessary during installation. The stuff is basically inert (no additives), water-repellent (so in theory it actually improves the seal), and since it''s an oil it won''t dissolve into the distilled water. It works awesome by the way, no leaks once I fired up the loop for the first time, and no leaks after two weeks. Solid product.

Does what it''s supposed to do.
I''m using this with EK fittings at the bottom of my loop, as a drain port. No leaks thus far.
