Pump & Reservoir
The pump in a watercooling loop is responsible for pumping the coolant around the loop. The better the pump the better the flow rate and therefore the quicker coolant gets around.
Every water cooling loop as a reservoir which is responsible for simply holding and displaying coolant. What size, shape or colour really does not matter in a performance aspect - as long as it it can hold fluid and not leak then it is up to the job!
UK Gaming Computers not only use the best pumps and reservoirs out there but we also use "Combo" Pumps and reservoirs where both a are closely combined - For example the XSPC D5 Photon 170 Tube Reservoir with D5 Vario Pump has the pump attached to the bottom of the reservoir which minimises the amount of tubing which will not only improve performance as the coolant has less distance to travel before its cooled by the radiator, but also makes the loop look much neater.
XSPC X4 Photon 170 V2
The X4 Photon Reservoir/Pump Combo combines the ultimate tube reservoir with our new X4 pump.
The X4 pump is a compact and high performance pump, designed for PC water-cooling. The pump has a flow rate of 600lph, a powerful head delivery of 3m and a ceramic shaft for longer life and reliability. The X4 offers similar performance to a D5 pump on setting 4, but at a lower noise level and a more affordable price.
The Photon's tube is made from a quality toughened glass, which is both crystal clear and highly resistant to staining.

XSPC D5 Photon 170 V2
The D5 Photon Reservoir/Pump Combo combines the ultimate tube reservoir with the best pump available for PC water cooling.
The D5 Vario pump features exceptional performance and unrivalled reliability. The D5’s speed dial allows you to adjust the pump speed to best suit your system, and the tacho output lets you accurately monitor the pumps speed.
The tube is made from a quality toughened glass, which is both crystal clear and highly resistant to staining. In the center of the tube is an acrylic lighting pole that connects to a 5mm LED on the base of the reservoir. The LED is easily replaceable so you can match the lighting colour to your build.
Unlike other tube reservoirs, which use cheap plastic brackets, the XSPC Photon has high quality CNC cut aluminium bracket. The bracket connects to both ends of the reservoir which give a solid hold without blocking the view of the tube.
Photon reservoirs can be used either horizontally or vertically.
