    For poops and giggles I am thinking of replacing my top mounted gts 280 x flow and putting a gts 280 u flow on the bottom of the case so both radiators are intake side.

    The one on top? I didn't find it too much of a hassle myself.

    it's hard to fill because of the internal LED pillar that illuminates when using an LED. that pillar connects from bottom to top, all the way to the fill port. When you open the port, there's a huge piece of plastic inside and it's really difficult for air to escape while filling

    Ah, ya, it would be a pain without a squeeze bottle.

    So I have been eyeballing the thermaltake tower 900, pretty sure two nemesis gtx 560mm radiators would give me about as much cooling capacity as I will ever need.

    That said we can do everything on AIR again just fine.

    Just pulled the trigger on the case, I was going to get a second reservoir, is there any issues with running 2 reservoirs and one pump?

    I found it to be a huge pain at first.

    Now I use a turkey baster, and no longer mind it!

    No issues, just mostly pointless from a functional standpoint.
