Alphacool Repack Single 5.25 bay res with DDC mount.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Saw this bay res at FrozenCPU:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/15649/ex-res-353/Alphacool_Repack_Single_525_Acrylic_Reservoir_-_Clear_-_Laing_DDC_Swiftech_MCP35x_Series_15165.html#blank

The peculiar thing is that they are bundling it with the MCP35X but the pump looks like it won't fit (see pics) since the pump has a different top. Does anyone know how to get around this or will it actually fit?

I've contacted both FrozenCPU and Alphacool but have yet to receive a response.

Looks doable.

The pump fitting reachs inside the RES well enough to use o-rings to seal with. The pump base actually screws onto the metal plate.

My concerns are this; the screw holes in the metal plate and the metal plate mounting to the RES must hold some reall tight tolerances for alignment keeping those o-rings in check. If not, leak city! The holes in the base of the pump are plastic. Nothing there is percision machined.

Laing makes a DDC pump with threaded fittings. I'm surprised that one was not used in this arrangement.

Now, if the image is showing black RTV between the pump and the RES, it may work, but the question is, for how long?

The bottom picture you linked shows the pump with the included housing that's either sold separately for the 35x pumps or can come included if you pay for the package. The housing is intended to be used with their inhouse reservoir to fit ontop of the housing. If you take the housing off the pump then you will see the bare pump which looks exactly as the top picture of your link.

This is the bare pump of 350 and 355...

This is the housing for either of the 2...

Also if i may add... what you linked is not for any package. It is just for the reservoir. It even says in fine print in the description "The reservoir is shipped without a pump! Pumps are available in the options below."

Well, the MCP35x is one of the pump options you can add which is why I made this thread - and to make things worse I 've received conflicting replies:

Alphacool themselves:
Code:

sadly i must tell you that these top do not fit with the repack, you need
the original top from the pump.

Replied back to both parties. Let's see what they have to say.

I doubt it would work. The bay res with mount is made for the stock top and the pump you're using doesn't have the stock top.

Yup, I give up on this idea:

Ah yes the Alphacool res doesn’t take the top directly off the pump. The base housing for MCP35X is the same but not the tops.



My fault. You would have to use one of the original housing designs.
