Recommendations for available dual D5 pump top.

I have an old style EK that currently runs in my daughter's machine but I understand that they are no longer available.

What is the best dual D5 pump top available these days?

I have been using a XSPC twin D5 pump reservoir for a LONG time with success.

Anyone have experience with the EK-XTOP Revo Dual??

I've used mine in a number of different systems, and it has been flawless. Currently it is in a loop with 3 GPUs, 4 radiators, and a 2970WX. Before that it was in a system with 4 GPUs, 2 Xeons, and 4 radiators.

In the current system I have both pumps set to 3, and in the old system they were set to 4.

How does the mounting system manage vibration transfer? It looks pretty good. I'm looking for quiet.

I have the newer EK one and it works fine as far as I can tell, but I don't really have a frame of reference.

well bitspower makes a nice duel top for D5 pumps. if that is what you are looking for, personally I do not use the duel tops, but I do see the reason for them. all of my water loops have at least two pumps. this is for two reasons, one, to increase water flow rate, and two, for redundancy. if one pump fails, it will not prevent me from still using the system, until the new pump arrives.

The bitspower dual top is fine but it has a few serious drawbacks compared to the older EK dual tops which look similar in design.

The bitspower requires additional kits to actually attach the pump to the top. The EK comes with the mounting stuff. That said, the kits for the bitspower are metal and come in the same colors as their fittings so the end result looks amazing. The mounting kits are expensive and double the total price for the setup.

Do not use the reservoir conversion kit that mounts to the pump top. EK did this perfectly as the water comes into the reservoir and then flows down into the pump. The bitspower reservoir just sits on top and all of the air bubbles just go right into the pump and back out into your loop. Pretty much complete garbage and completely pointless yet costs the same as the EK setup.

Just things to be aware of. Have an independent reservoir upstream of the pumps and be prepared to spend twice as much. End result looks great though.

just a thought, but have you ever considered that the reason EK stopped making the duel top is because they where selling it for less than it cost them to make?

The bitspower top doesn't sell for any more than the EK one did, a little cheaper actually. Well the top itself. Last time I looked when trying to decide between the two the bitspower was about $10 cheaper. Of course I learned about the mounting kits afterwards.

The EK has a piece of plastic that the D5s stick through that is secured with several screws. The bitspower requires the mounting kit which is metal and screws onto threads on the bottom of the pump top.

Maybe EK stopped producing that top because of costs though I am not convinced. Unless they said so explicitly this is just speculation.

They moved to the Revo setup which I have not used and cannot say if it is better or worse. I suppose it is better from a mounting perspective in that you don't need as much space in your case, but I do not think they look as good.
