I had that XSPC one. Bought it last December. Already had issues with it; it's known for leaking. The top tends to warp, the first thing you notice is that the top gets a few pushed-up spots, and then you can see the orange gasket peaking through, then it starts leaking; usually at the back above the fittings. I then looked around and saw that Repack. So I bought that, not wanting to go through the hassle of getting another warping XSPC res. So I've had that Repack with a single D5 on it since early March. I then took the lid off the XSPC and epoxied it down and I've tested it with really hot water, as it warps when you heat it up, and it's fixed. So I kept it as a backup in case I have an issue with the Repack.

I really like the Repack, about the only negative, is that it takes some time to get it filled through that port, but it's a trade off as you don't have to slide it out of the bay to fill it or top it off. It can dribble a bit from the port as you fill it, so keep a towel against it and don't rush things. So far, it hasn't leaked, it hasn't warped, it looks cool with some LEDs in the slot at the top. I used one of the unused ports at the back as my drain, using a Bitspower rotating 90deg with a Koolance QD pointing down, as in my bench build it's the lowest point. No complaints yet.

Hi,
I did the original review on the Alphacool Repack dual pump reservoir and have been running it 24/7 since then. It has worked impeccably with no problems whatsoever. I have two pumps working with dual loops and have had no leaks or problems.

I run the Alphacool dual bay res with a VPP655 and I have had no problems whatsoever in about 6 months. Runs quite with no vibrations, its a quality bay res. I dont think there is a single aspect the XSPC beats the Alphacool res, except for maybe personal preference for aesthetics. The fill port feature on the Alphacool makes it a clear winner to me over the XSPC.
