Everybody knows that EKWB makes some really fancy water cooling gear, but sometimes, just sometimes, you want even more high-quality materials. For example, wouldn’t it be great if EKWB used glass instead of acrylic? Well, today, it is doing just that for two of its reservoirs.
The reservoirs in question are the EK-XRes Revo D5 100 and 140. The change is simple: Instead of using an acrylic cylinder, EKWB is using a cylinder made of borosilicate glass.
However, the glass doesn’t have any threading, and therefore it doesn’t screw into the base the way the acrylic unit does. Instead, there is a metal tube going through the center of the reservoir that keeps it all together. At the bottom, the tube has holes through which the fluid is pulled into the pump. Due to this design, parts from the acrylic version are not compatible with the glass version.
Throughout the unit, EKWB uses G1/4” threading for fittings, which makes it compatible with most water cooling loops. The pump in the units is a Laing D5 unit with PWM support.
Pricing sits at $154.99 for the 100 mm tall variant, while the EK-XRes 140 Revo D5 PWM Glass will cost three dollars more at $157.99. Both are available for purchase directly from EKWB through its webshop.
