I'm trying to look for a new reservoir but I want something different than just a tube of just liquid, maybe some sort of moving part or tube or whatever inside to make it look different

If you are creative enough, and you don't have two left hands, you can make a reservoir out of pretty much anything you like. What is the theme of your build?

XSPC photon reses have a light tube inside and are made of high quality glass, then there's the "helix" reservois that have the DNA looking tubes in the middle.

If you want something "moving" inside the res then you need to use those special mixed fluids that swirl around.

HeatKiller's Tube res is somewhat different, some more unique ones such as Phanteks Glacier units are block type res/pump combos.

If you're looking for something well-built and unique, but not overly different, as W-L said, the Heatkiller tube series reservoirs from Watercool are amazing. I've built two systems with DDC 200 ones and they're still my go-to.

 

But, in addition to the suggestions given above, If you're after something unique, you can look into:

 - Red Harbinger reservoirs (still a tube res)

 - Monsoon reservoirs (still a tube res)

 - A pre-built CNC-milled reservoir from a modder such as Radikult Customs (Eg. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Acrylic-Reservoir-Water-Tank-360mm-with-4-G1-4-for-multiple-inlet-outlet-options/222882881088?hash=item33e4dade40:m:msfwZgZht4wBp4t7OPTlzhQ)

 - Get something custom made to your specifications/design from a modder such as Radikult Customs, Killrmodz, Clockwerk Industries, Savant PCs, Praetex design etc.

Want one of these. I don’t use rear fans and I could use the room.

The Phanteks Glacier might be worth looking at. It's certainly a bit different, and shouldn't be any issues with reliability. It will work with DDC or D5.

To be honest, that realle doesn't look very appealing to me at all. But I guess, if you need the space...

I don’t care much for res’s at all. Don’t build for appeals either. The fancy one the other guy posted would better then. Or get the custom water cooling case from singularity computers if you have that kinda cash for looks.
