MCP35X Res Cracked

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine has an MCP35X and the associated res for it. He would be posting but for the point of this message. The res cracked around the inlet ports on the res. This is a second generation unit with the top fill port option. Ran for weeks and then cracked and now he is offline. Swiftech has offered to provide their "other" res the square thing, but wouldn't be ideal in his setup. They say they are having materials issues I guess. Not sure what that is counter to the posts I see that it's been resolved (months ago) and replacements sent out. He really likes the res in concept but wants to get his system back up and isn't sure when Swiftech will have their issues officially resolved.

Bitspower seems to have some cylinderical reservoirs as well but not sure if any of them are plug and play or if some modding would have to be done. Thoughts?

Thanks.

JR

Edit: Something like the below link but not sure how I'm supposed to know if it's going to directly screw into his pump.

If he uses a res that has a central hole in the bottom then something like this http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13...ck_Chrome.html or a a rotary version http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11...r_BP-MBRG.html which would allow the res to be rotated to get the fittings in the right place.

Edit: Just to add I wouldn't trust a Bitspower straight rotary adapter. I had 2 of these and the seals broke easily as soon as I tried to rotate them more than a couple of mm http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12...g_BP-DR-C.html but there's other makes available

Thanks. Excellent idea. The rotary one will probably be preferable. I can imagine the chances once the extender is screwed into the pump, and then is screwed into the res, the chances of the ports facing the right direction once tightened down is slim. This would allow for rotation.
