Bitspower water tank Z w/pump mount question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I plan on building my own loop for the first time in about a month and I've got all the parts picked out except for the res/pump. I've seen some pics of other peoples rigs with the Tank Z and how they had a pump (both D5 & DDC) attached directly to the bottom of the res. How exactly would I do that?.


I've got a few pics here to show what I mean which some belongs to fellow OCN & OC3D members so I don't mean to "steal" your work just using it for visual purposes, thanks.

This is what you need for that setup:

I used the same res & pump top for my loop and I'm very happy with it!


Edit: I linked the pump top for a D5 pump.
Also, second pic you posted (JamaicanReaper's rig) used a regular pump top and a regular res joined by a male to male fitting. That's also an option, but no longer necessary since Bitspower released an "upgraded" res kit that has an adapter plate that is screwed onto the Bitspower pump top, making it "one piece".

Thanks for the links, sucks the Bitspower pump top is out of stock pretty much everywhere

I started looking at this one - http://www.performance-pcs.com/ek-xtop-d5-vario-acetal-incl-pump.html#Specifications By any chance would you know if that bottom stand or plate can be removed? It looks like it's just attached by screws

Yes, the mounting plate is a separate piece and is attached with screws.
