Anybody using XSPC dual bay reservoir? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
I'm using this one: http://www.xspc.biz/photo/dualbayressplit/5.jpg

It's the same but divided for 2 separate loops. A great res but I realize now that I only needed the single res you posted after all. rolleyes.gif For a single loop, I would probably consider this one as well: http://www.xspc.biz/photo/bayresalu/4.jpg

nothing wrong with the res bay. in fact you get more volume of water in the loop means it takes longer for the water to reach you max temps= good.

I really like the pump/res combo. Not only are you eliminating a piece from the loop but you are getting a free top upgrade for a pump.

I would think he would see a significant performance increase by removing 1 item from the loop and also upgrading the pump top.

Unless of course his system is already maxed out then he might not see a difference.

im using the xspc top...but if i use a pum/res combo, i would remove the clutter..anyways mines a simple loop (cpu - res/pump - rad) ...i would think a xspc top on a 355 would be a single item...

You don't need a dual bay reservoir. A single bay res is perfectly fine.

If you want to mount your pump in it you can get one that is capable of that (dual bay).
