Having a XD3 and a XD5 in the same loop?

Hi, I am wanting to have a dual pump loop for redundancy and in my corsair 680X I don't think I could fit Dual XD5's. So I know anyone you ask says not to have different pumps because one of them will run dry, but does the same principle apply when they are combo units? It shouldn't run dry because they are both reservoirs, right? Thanks for your help guys.

D5 pumps are very reliable. You'll have more issues with fittings badly installed than mechanical failures within the pump.

If you're really worried, just get a bare D5 pump you'll keep in a drawer in case a storm fries the electronics, but really, these are workhorses (a spare motor is like 70 - 80$ but i have yet to see one fail).

If you still have the rig listed in your profile, you could rather put that money aside to invest in a better graphics card ;)
