Cool GTX
Interesting pump D5 Next
 

 
 




To be honest I'm not fan of such complicate devices.
It's nice from one side but Aqua Computer too complicate with their sensors, softwares and devices.
You need whole day to learn what is compatible with tools you want and what you really need.
I saw people like that D5 Next and use with both of these....
 


 

 
That's mine recommended combo for everyone. 
Thanks god it's available to me and I could switch in any moment I wont...
Only I don't like Heatkiller mounting mechanism.

You must be very careful, D5 survived serious changes. It's not clear what they change exactly but they influence on performance of original Laing D5 made in Germany before 10-12 years... Not only PWM control and small parts inside.
Some brands as EKWB D5 G2 and XSPC model with SATA Power connector add some small parts on impeller probably to increase performance. But that part cause vibration and more noise. No other solution than drilling D5 channel because impeller in that case need more space during spinning. 
 
Guy nicely explain here...
 

 
Because of that I would stay with oldest batch I could find with speed controller.
Not only that, my motherboard example every time during restart computer cause D5 to run on full speed 2-3 seconds.
It's set in BIOS but never mind, motherboard work on that way and it's not only one. Pumps with Speed Control can't force to spin faster if you regulate speed. And I only could imagine suffering of PWM owners with motherboards where controlling fan is harder. On mine is easy, many options, settings. But it's not on every motherboard like that.
My pump is set 50% to 55C, than increase speed and on 75C is full speed.
I didn't set earlier because that's more warning setting, anyway difference between speed 3 (3300RPM) and Speed 5 (4800 RPM) is not big temp difference. That only should warn me that something is wrong if pump start full speed.
On other side D5 w Speed Control is better to have coolant sensor.
 
Swiftech MCP655 become most famous because they first use D5 and in that period before 15 years that was made in Germany.
After 2009-2010 production is removed and MCP655 on stock probably had 1-2 years more MCP655 w Speed Controller. 
 
 

 
Look cool, no doubt, but how durable is should be waited little more maybe.
They will become famous and wanted if customers are satisfied.
Haa... I don't know why people continue to keep brown rubbers on Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM on side where not need when fan look much better with rubbers only on side turned to radiator? Without them look much better.

That's because the D5 impeller actually levitate slightly when powered on, so any geometry change to the impeller may causes compatibility issues with tops or unwanted noise, especially on something custom like the Distro's Mario makes.  The Aquacomputer D5 NEXT uses Xylem or Lowara units, which are genuine and they are made in Hungary. As for the video, I have seen it and enjoy Mario's work.  As for how durable they are, like I said they are just Xylem / Lowara units with Aquacomputers custom electronics package, same units, just more feature rich.  I would say they are quite popular, they sell fast and its not uncommon for them to be out of stock.  I will be putting a Watercool.de HK res on top

You are right, but it's sad how people defeat fact that all D5 are same.
They not... PC stores sell them for 70-80$, other stores sell D5 38/810N (1/2" barbe)with Laing label for 250-300$.
Actually all are same 790/810/850N only barbe size is different.
I don't know why, but that's it. 
 
Can you tell me distance between screws on D5 Next mounting mechanism.
For me mounting options play big role because I don't want to drill case and than I need to choose between 120mm fan options or my case have some stand for pumps.
EK Revo fit, DDC off course fit, but I'm not sure what else.
 
If I put 240mm radiator on floor I could use that part.
EK Lowara D5 with speed control is probably better choice if someone order now.
I will follow experience of customers for D5 Next but I don't like top. I would rather to use pump only and control. 
They not sell probably alone.
 
I'm hooked on watercooling. 
Only I'm not sure how to replace monitor from 2011. 
I don't see option how to find space for saving money for monitor... very bad.
That's weakest part of my PC.

Ohhh they sell alone. Top is separate. NICE.
Heatkiller top inside Tube or separate is better.

You can check size on mounting mechanism on your D5 Next.
Maybe he fit on four holes marked with yellow. Red is D5 Revo, Blue is DDC classic I believe.

I am confused at what your saying, sorry.  I already have a mounting bracket setup for mine, its made by Coldzero.eu, it will mount the top on top of the HDD tray.  As for the hole spacing I think you mean the EVO top?  Its 40x40mm mounting hole distance which are M4 threaded, hope this helps.  There are 8x sets of these mounting holes and the unit is able to be mounted from the back set of 4x which I measured below, and also the bottom 4x which I will be using to mount this unit.  As for fan mounts, the unit comes with a 120mm fan mounting bracket.

I thought on this and how much is wide.
Both dimensions.
 

 
All of you have some fancy nice camera with high resolution pictures of hardware.
Somehow I shame to post pictures from iPhone... I resize them to 1000 x 750 pixels to look better....

Here is a cool update!  the Watercool.de HK res fits perfectly on top of the ICEman EVO dual D5.  I took a shot in the dark and measured the G1/4 hole distance on the ICEman which comes to 27mm, and the HK res is reported at being 26-28mm for the G1/4 hole distance, turns out they are the same distance, so I was able to attach it to the IN and OUT of the ICEman EVO via 2x Bitspower D-Plugs 20mm.  I ordered some black BP D-Plugs which I think will fit the look better.

You have two of them. Great.
Really looking cool.
 
 
I will buy during 2019 Heatkiller Series when I change tubes on hard but still didn't decide about size of reservoir and D5-Top separate and reservoir or Heatkiller D5 Tube.
100 Tube is size I like, But can't be mount on 120mm radiator. Heatkiller mount mechanism is for 150 tube. 
I didn't decide about version of D5, Maybe if Aqua Computer D5 Next is so good and if customers not complain,
I saw one guy destroyed, brake plastic part trying to connect pump with part with screen. 
I like Watercool.de D5 WTC w Speed Controller. Nice stainless steel fit with stainless steel on back of D5-Top. Look amazing.
RGB is fancy but that's somehow more for me. I don't want to computer look me as I bought parts on Aliexpress. And many expensive systems with Rampage VI and Lian Li Dynamic and D5 Distro and similar look just like that.
 
Before RGB I know every single high end ROG Motherboard up to Maximus 5/6 and Rampage V to recognize immediately when I see computer.
Now I stare some time and sometimes I can't say model of motherboard used inside, and they cost over 300, only because RGBs inside case. 
 
With watercool is easy, If you buy EK stuff you can't switch from DDC to D5 pump.
With Heatkiller, you can even change size of reservoir buying longer glass tube and struts.
Did you check maybe glass edges? They are smooth correct? They can't cut rubber ring inside?
Mine are very smooth, actually look me that EK Glass is like little higher quality than on Heatkiller, but I think Heatkiller POM is higher quality.
