    Just about every single product they've released that has acrylic in it has had problems of some sort. The biggest difference is, XSPC's stuff is all laser cut and chemically bonded or welded which makes mid run changes 1000x's easier to fix than something like the T3, which is something a lot of folks simply don't have a clue about. They think PC just snaps their fingers and a new revision T3 is made. . .sorry, it doesn't work that way.

    I am not dissing XSPC as I like their products-just saying three bad units in a row is a trend worth noting. I feel bad after backing the T3 as it is - I owe penance to the community - probably why Buddy Christ has allowed my good name to be soiled by images of shagging inflatable sheep and YouTube satires by that talented sarcastic modder NeverGive7 (poor soul has been tempted by the Dark Side).

    Nah, if it's like the 2x DDC dual bay res, the 800D has rails that have to be filed down a bit. You can technically jam it in, but it 100% kills the anti-vibration rubber grommets.

    Not a huge deal, and super easy to do.

    but I heard XSPC changed them so you don't need to file.

    That would be awesome if so. I know the newest DDC version that I have personally tried still didn't fit, but perhaps they changed the D5 version.

    I believe the D5 is less of a hothead than the DDC, but I still like to know the temps inside those enclosures with the pumps running.

    So have you found a couple of physic rules you've been able to ignore? Maybe gravity ? Is stupidity also a physics rule? I believe it's more of a constant. According to Einstein it might be infinite .

    Here's the new version of the res. I obviously have the 2x DDC version, but you can see the top piece of acrylic goes all the way to the back.

    Please excuse the micro bubbles, I just refilled after tweaking my tubing.

    I assume the D5 res is the same as the DDC res in that the bottom is completely open so the pumps can breath.

    Look where the wire is hanging down, I'd guess that whole area is open and only the actual res part has a bottom piece of acrylic.

    I see no exit holes for the wires, nor do I see a discoloration on the D5 from an acrylic cover. From what I'm able to tell it looks as if top and bottom are open, which would explain how the D5 is installed. Correct me if I'm wrong though .

    Only the bottom is open for installing the D5 as far as I can tell.

    I guess it will fit fine with 800D, I managed to fit mine in a CM 690II. Only problem i see is the mounting screws and adjusting the D5 pump.
