Alphacool‘s high-class solution for integration of single or dual VPP and TPP pumps into a cooling loop.
Pump top and reservoir in one component offer many advantages: Easy mounting, compact dimensions and appealing looks! All this is combined and perfected in the new Alphacool Repack. But Alphacool would not be Alphacool if these new products would not feature innovations which were before not available in this configuration!
The Alphacool Repack – Dual Laing D5 – Dual 5.25” bay station is for designed installation in the front of an enclosure. For mounting two vacant 5.25” drive bays are required. Mounting of the pump(s) can be done individually or in a dual configuration. For both configurations all required material is included. Dual operation can be configured to couple the pumps serially or for parallel operation. The pumps always draw the coolant from one combined reservoir.
Technological innovations featured in the Alphacool Repack:
So far the information about the reservoir sounds like a standard reservoir, but the developers have had many great ideas to solve common problems:
Different than standard solutions, where the coolant is guided around many edges and corners, still leaving micro-bubbles in the coolant, this reservoir uses a completely new technology. A new kind of filter is placed in front of both pump inlets, marked with “in” & “out”, eliminating the problem of micro bubbles at the core.
Operation with one or two pumps:
Operating with one pump is also possible as with two pumps. When using two pumps, two circuits can be operated in parallel. But if the "power" of both pumps should be used in a circuit, both outlets (market with "OUT") have to be joined together by a "Y" connector. Two other connection possibilities are on the rear, market with "IN". Despite having the same name both inlets not serve the same purpose. The upper inlet is provided for a Fillport. Is the Fillport not used the inlet should be sealed with the screw plug which is included. The lower input is the inlet for the water cycle (alternatively the outlet for drain the system). If two circuits are operated, both ends of the circuit have to be interconnected by a "Y" connector before reach the reservoir.
When using only one pump, the left space (seen from rear) should be used. In this case the two right ports have to be sealed with the screw plugs included. Alternatively, the upper inlet can be used for a Fillport.
On standard Slot-In reservoirs filling was a hassle: Unscrew, pull out, fill, fixate again. And during filling a third and fourth hand would always come in very handy, as it is always a very difficult operation to fill in the coolant. Enough! The front is equipped with a filling straw which can be released with few turns, and as it is hollow it can be used for filling of the reservoir. For this we recommend the filling bottles or straws from our portfolio.
The front, which is mainly what remains visible after mounting, is beautiful to look at: Plexi, Acetal, fill level indicator and filling straw in combination with the typical Alphacool copper look make a great appearance! The next step is the creation of lighting effects for the coolant. From the left and right side of the reservoir LEDs can be inserted, both 3mm and 5mm in site. The highlight: a 10cm long cold light cathode can be inserted from the top for maximum lighting performance! In combination with the LED it is even possible to implement different colors within the reservoir. Creative users will surely create even more effects with the Heatmaster and find new ideas.
Looking at all of these features, more power, great looks and comfortable handling, a simple question comes up: Why only high-class, this is already First Class!

Note: The copper-colored logo is covered by a protective foil. To have the logo shining and clean, simply remove this foil.
The D5 pump from Aqua Computer (49120) is due to the electronic connections not compatible with this Reservoir.
Note regarding cathodes:
We have measured that the cathodes have manufacturing tolerances of up to 0.3mm, even amongst the cathodes in the same package. As the fit of the cathodes is meant to hold them in place, it might be that due to the tolerances the cathodes will not fit at first. The small amount of excess material can easily be removed with a few brushes of sandpaper.
Important Note: Please note that the firm Alphacool International GmbH accepts no liability for damages of this product by using other coolants. We would like to point out that other coolants as inhibitors often contain or other corrosive substances attack the acteal, plase only usw our Cape Kelvin Catcher.
