Reservoirs can help with cooling in some situations. I just don't think that it's a primary function to use the reservoir body as a liquid/air heat transfer radiator. Smooth body reservoir would be a really terrible design if that's the goal. The cooling is ancillary to the primary functions.

I think the rough math on maximum possible cooling from the reservoirs in this case would be something like 15% or so. The res probably increases oil capacity in the shock main body by about 20% and maybe another 15% in the res body. But then we'd probably reduce by some factor - due to the relatively small pumping volume transfer - not much oil is exchanging between the main body and the reservoir unless they're running a double hose setup with a check valve like some newer Fox setups or they are a piggyback where there's a significant fluid exchange. In our case there's just not much transfer of fluid or thermal energy. And the longer the hose the less thermal transfer. The hose its self probably has more cooling effect than the reservoir. The lion's share of cooling benefit in our case is from having more oil in the main shock body and lower internal pressure spikes.

I'd put the reservoir anywhere you want and not think twice about the cooling value.
nobody is mounting them on the frame rail for cooling issues, it looks cool ;)

I used billet roll cage clamps and stainless hardware. Moved the reservoirs up just a bit and turned the knobs upwards since that's where they made contact with the tire

That looks good!
Hopefully when the tire is stuffed, they will be clear of contact!
