It all really depends on the amount of space you have in your case. Many people go with the drivebay reservoir/pump combo because it's simple and easy to manage.
If you want to go with a tube reservoir, you can also connect a pump straight onto it via pump tops such as Bitspower D5 / MCP655 Pump Mod Kit + Mod Top V2 w/ Swiftech PWM Pump Installed
(Pump, Pump Top, and Pump Cover is included), this is just a reference though. Each part can be bought separately.
You can also buy the Bitspower Reservoir and Pump Combo: Bitspower Dual / Single D5 Top Upgrade Kit 150
. In order for this set up to work, you will need to buy a D5 Pump, and Compatible Pump Top.
If you don't have the money laying around for a Reservoir and Pump Top combo, a simple EK 150/250 Reservoir and MCP 655 (with speed control) will definitely get the job done.
Their are other variations of tube reservoir/pump combos, but those are for the MCP 355 Pumps. I stick with the MCP 655's.Edited by R3apR369 - 6/16/13 at 6:33pm
