Fitting a double 5.25 res in an 800D

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
If anyone has done this before, how did you do it?

For those who don't know, there are supporting beams for 5.25" devices like DVD drives and that's obstructing my way of inserting the res. I've tried bending them.

I have an XSPC dual bay res that my MCP355 attachs to on the bottom and it fits without any problem whatsoever. I unlocked the tooless holders inside the case and took off the front panel and pushed the res into place and then put the front panel back on.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding your problem, but i don't remember having any problems fitting my res into my 800D

the xspc bay reservoirs for the DDC & D5 have channels to allow the res to fit inside two drive bays in the 800D. The X20-750 pump/res combo from xspc also has them too. The stand alone bay res from xspc does NOT have these channels.

Be careful as you'll need to cut the sliders on the case if you get a reservoir without these channels.

Yeah, I don't have the XSPC res, I have an EK res.

How do I cut the sliders?

Dremel?
I am glad this question has come up, I've heard there are some issues due to this particular part of the 5.25 bays.
So I'll be expecting to do a little cutting in that area as well.
Good luck!!

Guess I'm gonna be buying another res, I don't trust my skills with power tools, lol

What a shame, as this makes my pump top useless as well because the XSPC res can fit a pump in there.

You will like the XSPC reservoir it fits very nicely in your 800D. I have had zero problems with mine and it has my MCP355 in it and both have been working excellently since early January. Good luck with your loop.

Do you think it will have problems with my MCP655?

Assuming you buy the res for the mcp655 I can't imagine you'll have any problems. Should be almost identical to mine aside from the obvious pump set up being different and mine fits without any issues.
