Tank Choice + D5

Need some help here.

I need upgrade my old, more than 10 yeras EHEIM 1046, since with new cooling system it can`t handle with pressure...

My rig is a WB Heatkiller IV Niquel, + 120mm radiator Black Ice extremm + alphacool triple ultrathin radiator on top.


The pump will be a D5 with mechanic 5 level adjust: Lowara, Aquacomputer, EK...i think its the same..

Now my problem:

I want a tank, to sit vertically, and not atached to rig, like my actually EHEIM 1046, and somthing that i can adjust level liquid on top.
The liquid i use its car G12 + tapped water.


So far my options are:



- Alphacool Eisstation
- XSPC D5 Tank Reservoir (V3)
- EK-XRES 140 SPC PWM Classic RGB

-HEATKILLER® Tube 100 D5



The tube is flex 10/13mm. All option are welcomed.

Just in case you weren't aware, the EK pump/res you linked above is not a D5 compatible reservoir. It is an EK SPC pump which is a bit like a low powered DDC.

When it comes to D5 pump/res combos I always recommend the EK D5 Xres units. They are fundamentally different to other units that look similar but have the return port connected directly to the pump inlet which means the res section is mostly or totally bypassed once the system is filled.

The Xres has the return line feeding into the reservoir section, just like you would set up a seperate pump and res, so that all coolant flow must pass through the res. This allows the res section to do it's job as an air bubble trap very effectively.

Other designs like the XSPC and Aquacomp make it harder for the res section to do it's job trapping bubbles and means the res is quite stagnant with very little mixing with the main loop.

If you want to get into the planning you can look into the Monsoon system. It also has the water flowing into the res and not directly to the pump for easier bleeding.

Thank you for your reply!

Im very interested on the Alphacool Eisstation. Its simple and the connectors are at the base and not at the top.
I also found a site selling it to VPP version...


Already buy from barroy to 90º connectors just in case...


About pumps:

Real interested on 655 version with 5 mechanic options. Even i own a Asus Cross hero VII, i prefer manual control...

Found also a site selling Lowvara, if not mistake. Or i can go with Aqua computer VP655....any suggestion?
EK seems more weak, even i prefer i own a low waterblock cooling...

Thank you!

Sorry didnt notice your answer. well i look something simple like inovatek tank for EHEIM 1046 conected to the bomb, where i can put on floor of the rig and if necessary put liquid on the top...
So far Alphacool eisstation seems to be the more logic solution.

Thank you!

Yeah, if you want simple the monsoon system is definitely a no go.

well I have a water cool, and bitspower reservoirs. they can both be mounted vertically. their is a stand for the water cool, and standing feet for the bitspower. personally I like the water cool reservoir, better than bitspower. I did get the replacement top, with the top ports, for my water cool reservoir.

If you’re going to some of those reservoirs on a D5, how are you going to mount it? You need mounting brackets for the D5 still if it sits on the floor on some of these. As said earlier, that EK SPC is not a DDC pump....I would sort avoid that model IMO.

Mounting brags? Sorry English is not my native language....

All, of most of all solutions i suggest, have by default a base. Under my EHEIM 1047 i have a spoon, or shock absorber.

Can you guys send some links for that monsoon? I did my homework, but didn`t found any at my taste...

Personally im against vertical tubes+bomb, since they are prone to create more bubbles but maybe im wrong here.....

Most of the vertical ones have something to stop a vortex or bubbles from entering the loop. IE deflector plate or a tube or sponge thingy. All the ones I’ve used have been vertical and never had an issue with bubbles entering the loop.

Sorry my mistake (working office and reply same time) i did mean i dont like horizontal one....
Yes i saw that on some models from Heatkiller....

Maybe a photo of my rig helps better to get my idea of pump+tank:





This is my EHEIM + Inovatek tank. I want simple, practical, were i can connect 2 tubes, and put liquid on top.

so far, as i can see, this is the best candidate...




Already buy from Barrow those to 90º curves, just in case.....
But i dont have many feedback of this tank, if suffer from micro fissures for example or other problems....
