Attention: Do not test this item with jumped high wattage PSU. I may burn the pump screen and won’t be covered by warranty.
All reservoirs of the ULTITUBE series are equipped with a borosilicate glass tube. In contrast to acrylic glass, which is often used for tube reservoirs, borosilicate glass is extremely hard and scratch-resistant, features superb thermal and chemical resistance and a very low thermal expansion. The glass tube has an outer diameter of 65 mm and a wall thickness of 5 mm. Black anodized aluminum rings are securely bonded to both ends of the glass tube, and the rings do not get into contact with the coolant. Base and lid of the ULTITUBE series reservoirs are made from resilient acetal and screwed to the glass tube. After unscrewing the lid, a large opening ensures easy filling.
At the bottom of the reservoir, an integrated stainless steel mesh filter element effectively separates both particles and air bubbles from the coolant. The mesh filter is integrated into a molded rubber part and can be rinsed with tap water. The gasket between glass tube and lid is also a molded rubber part, designed to be securely held in the right position during fastening of the lid.
The PRO version of the ULTITUBE D5 features a pressure equalization membrane, directly integrated into the lid of the reservoir. The membrane allows gases to pass and thereby continuously equalizes the internal pressure of the liquid cooling loop and the ambient pressure, while completely blocking coolant from leaking.
Also included in delivery is a RGBpx compatible LED ring with 13 addressable LEDs that can be used for effective illumination of the reservoir. An Aqua Computer device with RGBpx output is required for LED operation (for example D5 NEXT, not included in delivery). A connector at the end of the strip can be used to connect another RGBpx component consecutively.
For additional, vibration dampening fixation of the reservoir in the upper area of the glass tube, a fixation ring made from rubber with a stainless steel insert is included.
The reservoir is equipped with an Aqua Computer D5 NEXT pump, installed directly into the base of the reservoir.
Key features of the D5 NEXT include:
· Laing D5 ceramic bearing motor for optimum durability and smoothness
· Detachable controller unit for easy access to the electrical connectors
· High resolution OLED display and integrated buttons for operation even without a PC
· Integrated RGBpx illumination for light effects and alarm indication
· Integrated water temperature sensor
· PWM fan output with up to 25 Watts of power and speed monitoring
· Fan output can alternatively be used as a flow sensor input
· Versatile control options
· Eight further values can be transferred from the PC to the D5 NEXT using the aquasuite software
· RGBpx LED output for up to 90 addressable LEDs
· RGBpx LED output can alternatively be configured as aquabus interface for connection to an aquaero 5/6
· Alarm buzzer for acoustic alarm indication
· Power supply via SATA connector
· USB 2.0 interface
· Firmware can be updated via USB
· aquasuite software for a comfortable setup, evaluation and visualization of all sensor data
