Bay Reservoir/Pump mount combo
 
So, looking at mucking around with a Dual Bay reservoir in my next build. I have a D5/MCP655 pump with a Detroit top I bought from a member here a couple years ago. I do NOT have the original top and screw ring.

Single pump. Single Loop.

I found this on Daz's site, do I have any other options?

I prefer the back mount style, but of course I don't have the screw ring.

I think this is the newer version: XSPC Dual 5.25 Reservoir for One Laing D5 (Back Mount) XSPC Dual 5.25 Reservoir for One Laing D5 (Back Mount) [582676] - $58.99 : DazMode PC Watercooling Gear, Canadian Best PC Watercooling and Modding Store

I know Primochill, DangerDen and Koolance all make similar products as well. Depends what "look" you're after really.

Apparently they don't come with the ring any more though and it sounds like Sugarj doesn't have his any more.... (I've PM'd him about having a spare.... ;) )

Please note: This product requires the original D5 screw ring to attach the pump to the reservoir.

This is the one I am using and like it very much. Daz's site has the wrong "additional pictures, but this is the rev 2.0. I'm running dual loops but it can be setup for single, parallel or serial. Comes with o-rings and metal screwdown plates.

Mr. Wilson graciously offered me his spare pump ring so I can go with the back mount XSPC version (the one JD linked above). I've never used a bay reservoir before, so I will fill you guys in on my impressions when I get a build log together.
Not right away though, waiting for some more parts.
