Features [ Edit | History ]


The MCRES Micro Revision 2 reservoir shares all the good things that characterized the classic MCRES Micro in size, quality, and provided accessories, but it also includes additional enhancements and functionalities that have been requested by enthusiast users:

  • The most noticeable feature is an additional port at the bottom of the unit. This port can be used as follows:
          o as an alternate outlet providing a straight tube routing to a pump located underneath
          o to feed a second pump
          o to plug-in a temperature sensor
          o as a drain

  • All threads, including the fill-port which was previously a PG7 standard, are now 1/4" BSPP (G1/4) compatible
  • New 1/4" BSPP (G1/4) plugs made of high polish chrome plated brass, are used for both the fill-port and the alternate outlet port.
  • A vent was added to the anti-turbulence baffle to eliminate the formation of a small air bubble that occured in the previous model.

In conjunction with the release of the MCRES Micro Revision 2, new fittings are now available to complement and enhance the use of this product:

  • 1/4" BSPP(G1/4) to 1/2" barb high-polish chrome plated brass fill-port fitting: specially designed to fit inside of the fill-port or alternate outlet cavity of the MCRES Micro Rev 2 and to facilitate the use of a 5/8" socket to fasten the fitting
1/4" BSPP-1/2" RPF

  • 1/2" Remote fill-port fitting: this type of panel mount fitting allows users to fill-up or refill their system from outside of the PC, or can alternatively be used as a drain; the fitting connects with 1/2" tubing to either the MCRES Micro Fill-port barb fitting (described above) or to a T-Line. Two models are available, black anodized aluminum body, or high polish chrome plated brass body. The high-polish chrome plated brass plug conveniently protrudes from the flange of the fitting for frequent access, and can be fastened either with a flat screw driver or a 5/8 socket. A standard 5/8" bimetal hole saw is all it takes to drill the panel and install the fitting.

                                                1/2" FPF-AL           1/2" FPF-CPB
                                              Black anodized           High Polish Chrome
                                                aluminum body          plated brass body

Experience: 4 Months


-Cheap compared to most reservoirs
-Multiple ways to configure inlet and outlets
-Bottom outlet allows the res to be directly above the pump
-Lots of mounting options included (brackets, velcro)
-With one inlet, one outlet, extra port can be used for temp sensor
-With coloured liquid you can see it seeping a little bit into the cracks where the pieces are glued together. Not a lot but you can see it
-Top port must be used as fill port
This is the second one these I've owned. The original did not have a G1/4 thread on the fill port which meant if you lost the included cap then you couldn't easily find a replacement. The new version is G1/4 thread in all fittings which is nice. They should mention that now they include metal barb fittings (3/8 and 1/2 OD) instead of the original plastic. For a small case this is a perfect reservoir. The bottom hole allows you to place the pump directly below the res and have it prime so easily. I also use on the one the two return line holes for a temp sensor. For the price it's a great little reservoir. Just be careful when screwing in fittings not to go too tight or the acrylic can crack.

Experience: 18 Months


18 months no leaks or stains.
This pump comes with a abundance of parts. 2 sets of barbs, 2 mounting brackets, 2 stop fittings, and hose clamps. More than enough to tackle any possible setup.

I can't recommend this res enough. Buy it now.

Experience: 1 Weeks


Really easy to install (used included Velcro)
Super clear
Extra port for installing temp probe ect.
Very small? Only bad if you want large though
Easy to get dirty
Included barbs are cheap plastic and ugly IMO
Using this for my new loop, really glad I got it, fits in the bottom of the 900D no problem with my 480MM Rad, 1200i PSU, and MCP650 Pump, looks really clear which matches my tubing.

easy to hide
comes with 3/8 fittings
Nothing so far
If you want a small cheap res, this is the best there is.

Experience: 90 Days


good quality finish
none so far
the best universal resovoir available. with all the mounting hardware and compact size you can find somewhere to mount it in any case

Experience: 1 Days


- Well built
- Small enough
- 2 main plugs with 3/8 or 1/2 ID Barbs included
- 2 aux plugs can be used for flushing and filling the res.
- Price is great !
- It's called a micro-res, but it's still pretty big.
Just received this article today, looks good, plastic is super clear, no marks what so ever on it. Craftsmanship is perfect, the seams are perfectly aligned.

Be careful of NCIX's water-cooling guide where they show you this res in the Silverstone case, it makes this res look small and easily placed inside a case, but when I saw the res, it made me see how HUGE that case must be to make it look so small. :)
