So a guy I work with gave me an idea for my build, he mentioned using a spray ball inside my reservoir on the top return port. With the Primochill Vue Silver fluid I'll be using, I think it would look pretty sweet. The spray ball sprays the fluid at the walls, it's usually used in pharmaceutical or food industry for tank cleaning applications. Though, after doing a little bit of reading, my impression is that it would actually be a bad idea, as turbulence in the res is not good. Can someone confirm this for me and maybe explain why? Thanks.

While it could lead to addition air circulating into the loop, my bigger concern would be it clogging due to the Vue fluid or causing an even faster breakdown of the coolant.

Yeah, the more I think about it, the more I think it's a bad idea. Probably neat for a show piece.

That would be my view of it.
