Pump\Res recommendation for SFF watercooled build.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This picture isn't mine, but it demonstrates well the space I'm working with. I need to fit a res and pump, or res+pump combo, under the GPU. I won't have the fan\
ad there, so it's a space that's roughly (W) 200mm x (H) 56mm x (D) 260mm.

I'm running a i5 2500k OC'ed and a gtx 560ti with two 140mm rads in the loop.

What's a good option for me that can fit in such a compact space, is powerful enough for my loop, and is quiet.

Well I would try an mcp355 pump and a small res. MCP355s are pretty good at pushing water but can be slightly noisy. If want something quieter try an mcp350. However, the 350 might not be strong enough if you are including the 560 in your loop. The best option for you is an mcp655. It is quiet and powerful but I think it will be too big for your space. It is hard to find gear to fit because of the height limit.

you could always just use a t-line and not use a res.

The MCP350 seems to get good reviews, and is short enough to fit:

Do I need an aftermarket top like this: http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/shop/pu...etal-g1-4.html ?

I'm using 3/8" tubing, so I don't need to change it, but I don't know if it does other useful things.
