Thanks, Reps + Everyone...
So now I am deciding between the Monsoon Res for $80 or the EK DD2.2 Jingway Pump for $104.
Never used Danger Den Stuff before and have heard bad things about it last time I remember reading.
Shipping however outside the USA will be $50. Which is ridiculous because when I buy things from OCN I usually have them shipped for $15 - $20 at most.

I would just just take the top cover piece to a metal shop
tell them you need a thin stainless piece to match up the sizing and the hole positioning. It will be easy for them to make, they can basically just trace it. Just don't let them use Aluminium or carbon steel.
Thanks for the idea, I did consider it but later thought hey, why not just sell it, its a design flaw anyway so why bother risking it and all. It will take me 2 weeks to get the RMA from XSPC hongkong, and then I will have to find a local metal working shop because I dont have the right tools nor can I find a sheet of SS for cheap. So what the hey, why bother and not just get the monsoon res or the ek dcp 2.2. But thanks for the suggestion, I think in the future it will come in handy to a lot of users.

EDIT: just looked it up and the pump is almost 5 years old
I am leaning towards the monsoon due to being able to use the D5 pump, however I never use more than 1.5 - 2.5 setting on my pump so I dont know. maybe I should rather get the ek dcp 2.2 jingway set instead? I dont know if the dcp 2.2 will be any quiter than the D5 pump at 2. because I can hardly even hear it unless I am 6 inches close to it.
I dont mind circles or anything.
