EK-DBAY D5 MX is a reduced cost variant of EK-DBAY D5 high-performance hydraulically improved pump top (volute) for D5 series water pump with integrated reservoir. It has been designed to lower the production costs yet still offer a convenient solution as a two-slot 5.25" drive bay form factor reservoir.
This type of design makes the use of 5.25" drive bay slots in order to provide more room for other components when facing limited space constraints. Made from injection moulded black ABS polymer, this sturdy, monoblock design guarantees maximum reliability and rigidity! Back side of the unit features a mounting space for the EK-D5 PWM pump motor (not included, can be purchased separately). Locking ring nut, made from black anodized CNC machined aluminum, and O-rings for the pump (if installed, see the image below), are enclosed. Although the unit can be upgraded with a pump, it can be easily used as a standalone reservoir!
The unit features one G3/8" threaded port on the top of the reservoir which serves as a fill port for the system. Other ports are standard G1/4" threaded - three on the backside of the unit to be used as inlet and outlet ports and one on the bottom that can be used as a drain port - and allow for installation of virtually any G1/4" threaded fitting / barb. EK recommends EK-ACF compression fittings.
Integrated anti-cyclone made from acrylic glass effectively prevents excessive vortex formation of the liquid.
EK-DBAY D5 MX is designed with anti-vibration rubber mounting system. This floating design effectively silences the pump (if installed with the reservoir) setup by de-coupling it from the rest of the computer chassis.
The front cover is made of quality acrylic glass and covered with an aesthetic aluminium bezel cover.
