So i have the XSPC 750 dual bay res and it sucks. Its loud like a fishtank and overall "meh". I was thinking of getting a res/pump and whats the best combo for around 100 bucks that would be quiet.

Depends on what kind of pump you have now; most of them don't come with one. D5? MCP 35x?

LOOP ORDER DOESN'T MATTER.

I have the 750 combo thing. I want one that has a tube style res on top or any quiet and cost effective solution

Ohhh okay I see.

The bitspower res upgrade kit for the D5 is solid, but you're going to need a pump and a top also which means it might not be the best for the money.

Beyond that... Idunno, shop around! For the pump I'd look for either a D5 variant, an MCP 35x, or an MCP 355. The res doesn't affect performance much, so just get whatever's prettiest/cheapest.

I use the Koolance RP-452X2 dual bay res and a D5 pump-

http://koolance.com/rp-452x2-dual-5-25in-reservoir-for-1-2-pmp-450-s-pumps

There is some vibration from the bay res with pump speeds past level 2 but other then that the res looks amazing and functions well.

I know it seems expensive but if you seen and held 1 in person you can possible justify the cost.

I have not seen another bay res come close as far as looks and quality at least imo.

I also had a Swifttech maelstrom i used for like a week then removed but it. It is also on the expensive side but you can mount a MCP35X to it -

Sry OP i didn't i forget you mentioned you want to stay around $100 and i will PM you.

The XSPC D5 tank reservoir is relatively cheap at $40, and D5 pumps are usually in the $70-80 range. It'll be slightly over budget at $110-120 for pump and reservoir, but I think that's the best option you have.

The D5 tank reservoir currently sells at $35 at Performance-PCs.

If budget is the issue you could buy a D5 or 35x and buy the res later. a 35x with 35x res would give you the most power and with speedfan you could set it up to auto throttle speeds depending on temps. Fcpu caries the new mcp655pwm which.is also PWM
