Big series loop pump selection

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I plan on doing 1 big series loop and need some help with pump selection. Here are the loop components:

Danger Den Monsoon bay reservoir (just the res no pump)
Black Ice 360 Rad
Ek-HF CPU water block on i7-2600k
XSPC RX-360 rad
EK GTX-460 gpu waterblock no.1
Ek GTX-460 gpu waterblock no.2

I was thinking about a D5 pump with the Ek-D5 X-Top rev 2.

I appreciate your thoughts. Thanks

The D5 should be fine, or a DDC with replacement top.

Also, if you don't already have the blocks, I'd look for another manufacturer due to their latest blunder.

I also second Angrybutchers comments. Read the official statement about the nickel plating of EK blocks, and determine for yourself why you should not buy anything related to the company.

As for the radiator, are you planning to use the GTX or the stealth?

D5 has more power than the DDC, and has the strength to push water through such a loop. The DDC would struggle to cope with all that restriction. You could go for a dual DDC config, possibly with a dual top, that would allow the DDC to use its' advantage of better flow rates.
I'd go with dual DDC, d5 or D5strong.

And also in all honesty, using a DDC with an XSPC top would be enough.

You probably don't need the extra radiator. If you get a Black Ice GTX, it should be enough.

And be sure to buy your pump directly from LAING or Koolance. Swiftech has a stupid ass policy of where if you replace the top, the warranty will be void.

Other way round guys:

The DDC has higher head pressure when used with a custom top (or the MCP35x with it's standard top)

The D5 has a high max flow rate when there is little or no restriction. Custom tops don't make a difference.

The D5 Strong is a beast, but you need to run it above 12V for it to beat the DDC w/custom top / MCP35x.



From Martin's test of the PMP-450S (D5 Strong)

For a longer loop something like the MCP355 with a custom top or the MCP35x is better.


Edit: If you get the D5 vario it should be fine on setting 5, your loop isn't massively restrictive.

If you were UK based, there is a D5 strong with 24v adapter for sale in the sale section.
Thanks for the correction about d5 vs ddc flow/head comparison.

You have your pumps mixed up, it's DDC that has high head pressure to cope with high restriction loops and D5 that has high flow rate with low restriction loops..

The stealth.

I have had the EK gpu blocks from an old build. Do I need to remove them and inspect them? They look fine while observing them still mounted to the cards.

I plan on overclocking both cpu and gpus that's why I though the extra rad would be needed.
