Here's a guide on building your own reservoir at a signifigant discount compared to store bought. Of course, once you've built that, you'll be looking for other phase change components to keep your PC cool'n'froody during the summer.
"Today, I'm going to help you keep a little bit of money in your wallet by showing you a step-by-step guide on how to build your very own reservoir for your water cooling system. Store bought reservoirs can cost $20, $30, or even up to $80 and they all serve the same purpose. They serve as a fill point for your water cooling system and an easy way to bleed the system. Building an entire water system is beyond the scope of this guide but we may update it later to include such information. Today, we're going to build a custom made reservoir for less than $8 bucks."
