The XSPC Dual 5.25" Bay - Dual Loop Liquid Cooling Reservoir is a perfect combination of looks and functionality.
Firstly the reservoir has two pump mounts for DDC pumps. (MCP350 / MCP355 / Laing DDC-1T/1TPlus) Both pump ports can be used or just one the reservoir chamber is divided and completely not integrated. Two G1/4" thread male plugs are provided as well to cap off the second set of In / Out ports. With two pumps mounted Dual Loops can be used using the different reservoir chambers, and they use different fluids so multi color loops is an option. Single loop systems can use two pumps for maximum flow rate simply by connecting the out port of one pump to the in port of the next.
Secondly this reservoir, even with both pumps mounted, only takes up two 5.25" bays and can be pulled out the front of the chassis to fill / refill as needed. As far as looks, there is no comparison to this unit. The black face plate can be removed to match up with any style chassis.
Finally the quality is exactly what you would expect from the folks at XSPC. Embedded brass screw threads are inserted into the plexi to ensure no cracking when mounting the bay reservoir. O-rings are also affixed to the sides to eliminate any pump vibration and other unwanted sounds. Three LED mount holes are set into the rear of the unit so you can illuminate the res using 5mm LEDs. Four G1/4" threaded ports make the unit compatible with any size system.

Great res for great pumps!12-04-2012

Can count on XSPC for great DDC performance. Only wish they made a version that was 2 pumps single loop. I know you can make it work on this but really who runs 2 loops? Show offs and folders? I''d rather make sure I am never letting a radiator sit idly by doing nothing!

the guy below isnt completely wrong, but the things he listed arent really that big of a problem.. very petty. I have had way worse experience with other products. With regard to the screws... you really should use the screws to secure the res even with a screw-less drive bay.. the res is going to be filled with water and very heavy, its not light weight like a disc drive. It''s best to to secure it tightly, in my opinion. overall im very pleased with this. I have used it with dual-loop setup and single loop. For single loop i connected both pumps in series by connecting the left side to the right side with a piece of tubing.

I bought this to split my cpu from my 460gtx to asist in the cooling. Three things to note 1, had to bend the tray fins because the side groves were too shallow 2, the tank is only half of the depth making installation of the hoses more difficult 3, the screws to mount the front plate did not fit because the acrylic body fail to have any threading.
