Before we get started here is a brief history of XSPC
XSPC Started off producing Water-Cooling gear towards the end of 2004 with there first big release the XSPC R120-S, R120-D and R120-T Radiators: http://www.xs-pc.co.uk/radiators.php Since then they have extended there range of Radiators in early 2005 by adding there Cross Flow and Vertical Flow into the market. Then added December 2004 - XSPC High Flex 1/2" Hose to rival the likes of Tygon and Clearflex and done a good job too.
March 2005 - Brought us the Full XSPC Range of Character displays which included 16x2 and 20x4 in a variety of colours, the low cost price of this LCD range shuck the market and forced other rivals to bring down there prices. http://www.xs-pc.co.uk/lcds2.php
April 2005 - Standard version of the XSPC X2O CPU Water-Block introduced (10/8mm and 1/2") & DC750/DC1000 Water-Pumps Arrived http://www.xs-pc.co.uk/x2ocpu.php
May 2005 - brought us the 250mm Passive Reservoirs in Black originally but have currently extended there range to 150mm - 250mm and 500mm Passive Reservoirs in 4 primary colours Black, Blue, Red & Silver http://www.xs-pc.co.uk/reservoirs.php
June 2005 - we seen the 5.25" Bay mounts & Desk stands to support there Character LCD Range August 2005 - was the introduction of the XSPC X2O Water-Cooling kit which also produced massive results on a low budget price range. Following the success of the XSPC X2O Water-Cooling kit, XSPC started to sell the components from this kit individually for instance the Pump and combined Reservoir and first introduced the Cross Flow radiators.
Sept 2005 - XSPC VGA & Chipset Water-Blocks http://www.xs-pc.co.uk/waterblocks.php
2006 - XSPC Bay Reservoirs in Black/Silver & Clear Perspex 2006 - XSPC HDD Water-Block introduced 2006 - XSPC Extreme CPU Range Introduced. Bottom line: XSPC Have started off fairly slow but never stopped adding products to there range, keeping there customers & Fans guessing what will be next on the agenda
Today in Co operation with XSPC and www.componentsuk.co.uk (who kindly supplied the Bay Res for today’s review) we take a look at XSPC’s new reservoir. I am expecting to see something special after the X20 Xtreme CPU block (read review here) performed on par with Danger Dens TDX. Ok it is only a res but I have seen quite a few incarnations in my time so let us get on and see if XSPC have something better or is it just another run of the mill bay res.
