    got a great deal on a UBER655 pump and am wondering what would be a uber reservoir to go with it in my 800D case?
    been looking just thought i would get some opinions from the gang.
    thx:toast:

    I guess it depends on where you want to put the resevoir.

    well probably in the right hand corner next to drive bays.i have no current available drive bays open because i have a mesh lian li fan holder there. my radiator is on top so not sure if dd rad reservoir would be a good idea.looked at the bitspower water tank plus and it looks like it just stands up but not sure. ek multi option looks good. not sure how difficult to attach to case?
    so i lot of options but since i've been using mcp350/355 type pumps and xspc res tops kind of fuzzy with other type reservoirs.i know a little but not enough just yet to make a good decision

    I had a POM80, it failed, so I then moved to the XSPC top. Absolutely love the new res!

    xspc tops are great but won't fit on UBER655 pump.At least i don't think they will.[???]

    because of the chrome cap on the pump? That would make sense.

    there isn't really an uber res...i would just get one of these

    and by great deal i really really hope that pump cost way under $200 like not even half cause its not a huge amount better than the regular one.

    was looking at this one says you can attach to a 655 pump with bitspower shiny silver fittings. o you know anything about this one?

    Isn't the metal end on the Uber655 just a cap? Seems you could remove the cap, slide on the ring for the XSPC, then replace the cap. I know its going to be a little longer (the cap placement) but the body of the pump is perfectly round. Seems like it would work to me.

    are you referring to the one that fits in the drive bay?if yes i would have to remove the lian li mesh fan holder from the front do you think i would be worth he air flor loss [?] or were you meaning this one http://www.jab-tech.com/XSPC-Acrylic-Tank-Reservoir-for-Laing-D5-pr-4665.html
    thx

    that one you would loose your current top in favor of the res top which still has very good flow :cool:

    so you were referring to xspc dual bay res. do you think it would hurt temps losing the 120mm fan in front?

    I removed my EK top for the XSPC res that connects directly to it. But buying the Uber just to strip it down is sort of silly.
