Reservoirs/Pumps: Need a little bit of help...
Okay, so i get paid next week :thumb:
I want to finish my rig off with watercooling, the loop will have...
CPU > RAM > EVGA 4-Way > 360 Rad >
I know what pump to get and it will be this - Laing DDC-Pump 12V DDC-1Plus (MCP 355)
Is it better to have this res - Scan.co.uk: XSPC Single 5.25" Bay Reservoir (Alu Front) - 5060175580962 or this one XSPC Acrylic Dual 5.25 Reservoir for Two Laing DDC's
If i use the duel bay would the pump block still be needed ? EK-DDC X-TOP V2 - Acetal G1/4 Its good to have a custom block, what should i go for ?
Note: I will be adding another GPU loop in a few months time aswell.
I have never did water cooling before and i cant google this anwser thanks guys.
I actually just asked about the xspc dual bay and had gotten some feedback saying that it was hard to bleed and had problems with algae (thanks matari), I have no idea about the single bay.
However, another option you have with this pump is you can buy a res/pump top combo. Such as the EK Water Blocks EK-DDC X-RES 140.
Definitely no sign of algae though. I'm running Thermochill UV Blue coolant right now though and used Feser One in the past.
Been running just over a year now with 0 maintenance. I know, bad, but I see nothing floating around.
Bay reservoirs are almost always require more effort to bleed. I have used Feser One and Thermochill EC6 with the reservoir and got algae both times. Switched to the EK Multioption X2 and never had issues with algae, but it leaked. EK shipped the first round of X2 with a bad O-ring; they said they fixed the issue by buying O-ring from another company. I recently bought a Koolance RP 402 X2. Nice reservoir, but has some issues:
1) Bleeding requires lots of patience,
2) They used way too much lubricant to hold the O-ring in place,
3) Good luck getting that acrylic cover back on if you take it off,
4) The pumps are louder.
