Is there a way to convert an EK res x3 150 to accept a D5 pump?

So I just got https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-res-x3-150

along with a 240 radiator, a 360 radiator, a d5 pump, ddc pump in separate loop along with some ek supremacy blocks which I need to get mounting hardware for as they came with 2011v3 and not all the post screws, they came hooked up to like 5.25 bay resivior type things enclosed in a loop and were ran without radiators for possibly an expended period. keep in mind this is all second hand, but I got it because someone I know gave up on water-cooling lol which is why I got an o11D case instead of a cheaper nice looking case

my question is:

can I simply buy the bottom part somewhere for the d5 res and screw the remaining portion of my reservoir onto it?

https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xres-100-revo-d5-acetal

like just the bottom black part of that? I'm not looking to pay a hundred bucks to get a whole unit if I have 75% of the parts needed to make it work :/

if not then is there a super cheap offbrand reservoir for the D5 not including the pump that I can purchase for like 30-40 bucks that might screw into a 120mm fan mount on the side of my o11d?

Hi,
You should ask ek via chat or email
But their reservoirs are all same thread so it should interchange with the smaller one you linked too with a d5 mount.

I had ask before some months ek with the exact same question because i have a 250 x3 and a d5 pump and i wanted to join them to save space.
The answer was no because the bottom part of the combo ek reservoir is not sold separately. I asked in 2nd mail if a user with a combo break something, how he will be able to fix it? The answer again was that he need to buy a new combo.
Not very good imo.

Get an EK-XTOP Revo D5 - Acetal https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xtop-revo-d5-acetal

Flip your XRES over so the single port is on the bottom and screw the two together with a G1/4 Female to Female.
Might want to use a 15mm dsub there for ease in moving and installing.
Make sure you support the res with vibration mounting since it will be attached to the pump.

Best suggestion i could make.

Or you could buy this on ebay for $71 (US): https://www.ebay.com/itm/EKWB-EK-XRE...EAAOSwElpd8YpS
Save the tube and top and other stuff as spare parts.

Build: Z390 ACE
Core i9-9900K OC 5 GHz, MSI Z390 ACE Mobo, AMD Radeon VII GPU OC 2K MHz
Corsair Vengeance RGB 32GB 3200 RAM, Phanteks Enthoo Pro M SE.
EKWB Z390 ACE Monoblock, Bykski Radeon VII GPU w/b, 2x EKWB 140 Revo D5 Pump & Res.
Aquacomputer Aquaero 6 LT USB Fan-Controller, Quadro, Vision Touch and 'High Flow' Sensor.
(2x) HWL Black Ice Nemesis 280 GTS XFLOW and (1x) Alphacool XT45 X-Flow 280 radiators.

That's insane I feel like the water-cooling fad jacked up prices of pumps and reservoirs two fold in the past 10 years

would this fit like a swiftech mcp 665-b pump?

also it doesn't show any mouinting hardware im hoping if it did work I'd be able to mount it to a 120mm fan bracket type thin?

Per the description:

"The aqualis D5 100/150 ml variants are designed to be mounted directly to a Laing D5 pump. Four rubber decouplers (art. no. 41092) can be installed in the rear of the reservoir's base part."
and
"Please note: Fittings are not included in delivery, please order seperately. Laing D5 pump and rubber decouplers are not included in delivery!"

You will need to buy the rubber decouplers (art. no. 41092) at a minimum. https://www.aquatuning.us/water-cool...-rubber-buffer
Also, please note that Aquatuning shipping prices are INSANE! Make sure to factor that into your decision.
Try looking for the same parts at Aquacomputer or PPCS.

Not sure what type of 120mm fan bracket you are planning on using but this is intended for a bottom mount. You probably will need to mod one or make one.

There is no $20 to $30 solution that is not going to require you to do some type of modding to make it work. And since this is THE RES that feeds your pump, you should not go cheap on this. Spring a leak and then your pump (and who knows what is else) is gone.

In for penny, in for pound. Cheap out and it will cost you you later on.

Good Luck!

I basically accepted reality and paid 90 bucks on the revo 100 res from amazon which you cant even buy anymore from EKWB and the price went up from msrp so they can peddle their RGB pump combos. honestly a stupid choice since I haven't even tested my D5 core yet but im trying to have faith its not busted lol paying 90 bucks to get a plastic piece smaller than my fist for a waterpump seems really stupid but I guess I can't do much seeing water-cooling prices have jacked way up since I made my first few builds lol I blame AIO coolers


ty for your help btw, it def put stuff in a better light for me
also ordered an ekwb backplate thingy to mount it to a 120mm fan, and an XPSC razor neo 2080 ref version which im not even sure fits my EVGA 2070 super XC Gaming card, and also have no idea if I can use my existing backplate or if I have to spend another 50 on an XPSC backplate, just hoping I can use my current one lol I wont find out until all the water-cooling parts will arrive

SPECS: No idea how to add my system like everyone else,

i think you can use the black part here to join your reservoir with the pump

if you ask gently im sure ekwb can help and will help, 100% sure

as you can see in the pictures they can be made as combo

haha that would be the DDC version but an update in attached image, I just bit the bullet and paid 90 for a revo 100 res to put my D5 core second hand in, upon testing thankfully the thing works and I'll use this method to flush the radiators.

would be running 50/50 vinegear and water in the loop be a good idea running tubing through radiators this way in a closed off system? one rad is brand new the other rad has seen some use

I would not run 50/50 vinegar through a d5 pump. It could damage the seal and plastic parts.

Just fill your rads with the 20% to 25% vinegar solution (or use the Mayhems Blitz part 1) and let soak for 24 hours. Shake the radiator vigorously every two hours.

When rinsing the radiator out, drain it out into a white bucket (so you can see debris on bottom). Keep flushing and draining until the water runs clear and PH is about 6.5.

It should be noted that I did run a 15% vinegar solution through my loop for 30 minutes once, but only after I cut out all the nickel plated parts. I did this to remove some pastel coolant. I followed it up with Mayhems Blitz Part 2 and just over gallons of distilled.
