Swiftech is one of the leading companies in the water and air cooling business. We have seen awesome products from these guys in the past both in water and air cooling. Today we will take a look at a Micro reservoir from them, apparently it’s suppposed to be able to be mounted anywhere and also have awesome performance. These are the things we will be checking out during this review.
Swiftech was established in 1994 and incorporated in 2001. Its sales skyrocketed in early 2001 following the release of the MC370 line of heatsinks. Reviews of the heatsink in the Internet Press propelled Swiftech into the limelight as the number one source for high-performance heatsinks in the aftermarket computer parts Industry.

I have seen loads of different tanks in my day and some have been to big and clumsy or just to small to even be able to keep the system cool. I am curious to see how this tank will perform in the summer heat we just got here in Sweden, without air condition as in North America it can get quite warm inside and then it’s very important to have a reliable system.
This tank came packed in some bubble wrap in a box and the acessories were packed in a small zip lock bag to keep them together. T*he tank is made out of clear acrylic or as we call it plexi glas, and the size os 100*76*38 mm which is very small, I actually have a decent picture to show you the actual size of this tank.
