Here's my problem - I already have D5 Vario pump that i had with my Alphacool bay res...

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 100

I would like to switch to Tube Res and i am having a hard time finding the tube res that are D5 pump rdy to install... I might go with the pump top seperate if i have to. Here the few pic i have that really got my attention and really like... just a general idea..


Alphacool Cape Fuzion Core 30 - Acetal - Black





Plus this Redharbinger FMJ Series Stainless Steel Reservoir Cover





So i am not sure which tube res will fit properly and what not... I want to have a lighting in the middle of tube like alphacool cape fusion core but im not sure if Redharbinger FMJ will fit plus the pump issue i am not sure about.. bear in mind i already have a D5 pump thumb.gif

Also i would like to fill the loop by top of the tube res preferably, and i like to buy most of the stuff from Frozencpu as well unless no choice.

any res with threads in the ends can potentially fit any pump, just use a male-to-male adapter... this requires a threaded pump top however. EK, aquacomputer and bitspower all produces reservoirs that connect directly to the pump top, bypassing the need for an adaptor, if thats what youre looking for.

Not sure what you mean by bypassing the need for an adaptor... i thought there's reservoirs that can accept D5 pump at one end like proton from xspc but some don't have any like normal tubed reservoirs.. i am looking for a tube res with FMJ and a place where i can add my D5 pump onto the bottom of it without any extra hardwares.. possible? or not good idea and go seperate route?

It seem it still need a pump top and fitting for this kit... So that means if i went and order that above, i 'll need a pump top but i would rather to have ccfl in the middle of the tubing with FMJ over the tubed res... i cant seem to find matching part without needing the pump top but maybe someone will find it and point me in the right direction.. only time will tell. biggrin.gif

The Redharbinger FMJ sleeves are only made to fit two very specific reservoirs. The EK-RES X3 250 and the Bitspower Water Tank Z-Multi 250. The e models are for the EK, the b models for bitspower.

So, either get a freestanding res, sleeve and pump top.
http://www.ekwb.com/shop/reservoirs-and-acc/reservoirs/ek-res-x3-series/ek-res-x3-250.html
http://www.ekwb.com/shop/pumps-and-accessories/pump-tops/d5-series/ek-d5-x-top-csq.html

Or you may be able to use a pump/res combo and replacement tube.
http://www.ekwb.com/shop/reservoirs-and-acc/res-pump-combo/ek-d5/ek-d5-x-res-top-140-csq-black-acetal.html
This part is exactly the same as is used in the EK 250 res so it should be fine to combine the sleeve with it.
http://www.ekwb.com/shop/reservoirs-and-acc/reservoir-acc/ek-res-x3-series/ek-res-x3-tube-250-204mm.html

Darlene has also demonstrated how to make your own CCFL tube inside one of these type of large tube res using a multi port top, some tubng and a couple of fittings I think.

I am not sure if the Bitspower 250 upgrade kit uses the exact same reservoir tube as the Z-multi 250 but I would suspect it does so it 'should' be possible to do the same with Bitspower models. The bitspower stuff just comes as separate components that you join together yourself rather than a single kit like the EK. I would go with the EK because it is a better working design.
