Hi everyone.
I am in bit of problem. So I got myself thermaltake tower 900 (real awesome by the way). I also bought XSPC photon reservoir , but it is impossible to fit it vertically. Since thermaltake sides are glass, I can exactly drill hole in them lol. I might have to sell this sucker, and went through entire web looking for an idea, but couldn't find one so finally decided to ask.

You have a couple options, 1 is likely your best option.

1) return/exchange the pump+reservoir combo, get something else - there are several D5/655 pump+cylinder reservoir combos out there by EK, Swiftech, Koolance, as well as some others similar by Enermax and Alphacool using a 755 variant.

2) manufacture a custom bracket to allows you to vertically mount it - you could even use high-adhesive double-sided tape.

3) swap the pump with a different top, but this might cause problems with reservoir fitment, which means negating the entire purpose of the one you bought.
