Who We Recommend
Take the work out of pump reservoir combos. We will install them for you! You pick the pumps in the options below and the unit will ship completely assembled with box and all original parts included.
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.
Note: Fittings are NOT included and required for use!

Hard to give it a good review02-08-2014
Reviewer: Tanderson (2)
When I first set it up, the fittings in the back leaked, it was easy to loosen and difficult to tighten when install. With both pumps running in series, great flow. I liked the large reservoir holes, easier to fill and deep reservoir. Worked great for about a year then one of the mcp35x pumps burned out, huge scorch mark on my dvd player below it, the smell was horrible. Since it was past a year and not installed in a Swiftech reservoir, I''m out of luck. I decided to switch to another bay reservoir, so I decided to take the good pump off, it was the most difficult and excruciating ordeal I''ve dealt with. I actually busted the acrylic sockets and busted the swiftech pump to get the pump out, so I used the burned up pump housing to replace the busted house, it worked. You can kind of see from my experience why I give it a two.

Worked well for about months then one of the motors completely burned up. Also a little noisy.

1 - suspiciously, they only provide the "ID" sizes of the provided fittings; however, not knowing the OD proved disastrous as they do not accomodate 3/4" OD tubing. I feel ripped off there. 2 - Even though there are slots for 3 LED lights in the back, they only give you one. Would have been nice of them to tell you that. 3 - Don''t get the "custom" white sleeving. It is so dull and semitransparent that it looks more gray than white, AND they only sleeve the power cords, nothing else (so know that)

Had this put together with dual MCP35x swiftechs from your guys here at frozencpu.It came with the hex tool to put on the front cover. So far an amazing investment.
