I was thinking what kind of water reservoir to use for my new watercooling set. Most people are using a plastic tank. Plastic is an insulator, isn't it?
Since I'm not planning to use a radiator and a Peltier, The size of my water reservoir but also the material is important. I'm thinking about a metal reservoir which should radiate the heat well. Has anybody some idea's what kind of metal tanks are available? Thx
You can get an aluminum electrical junction box. If there is copper or brass in your system, you want to stick with plastic, otherwise your system will turn into a battery.
