A CLOSER LOOK CONT’D
The top end of the Photon reservoir has a large fill plug. This plug is not your standard G1/4″ threading though so you cannot use this as a return line as supplied in the kit – but I’ll show you a neat item later on in the review to remedy this.
The base of the Photon comes with a single sealing plug and two open ports. The port farthest to the left is the pump feed while the middle and right-hand ports are for the return.
There is a small hole in the side of the reservoir where you install your 5mm LED. I noticed that the LED does not stay in this hole like the CPU block LEDs do. What I ended up doing is bending the LED leads slightly to make it fit snugly into the res.
Here’s a shot of the inner tube lit from the included LED. It’s enough to give a neat look without being overpowering.
Alright now that we’ve gone over all of the included items in the kit I’ll install it onto my Primochill Wet Bench and test it.
