MCR-X20 Drive (Rev.2) Series Heat Exchangers with Integrated Pump and Reservoir

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Has anybody used one of these, seen a review of these, or know much about. It seems to be great for what I'm trying to accomplish.

If you can run vertical orientation, go for it.

I have 320 version of that combo. At the moment I'm only using MCP35X pump from it, radiator is sitting on shelf. When put together that thing is just too noisy for me if pump is running over 2000 rpm. Pump alone isn't very noisy but hard connection to radiator seems to amplify noise level.

You should pair a blue top 350 with it. A 35x with one block is overkill. Have you lowered the duty cycle in your controller by large amount?

*Btw, the pump when connected to the rad, will make one unit. You should then isolate the rad from your case. If everything is metal to metal between the rad and case you're going to have noise. I rad mount like the Bitspower uses rubber to isolate the rad might help a lot.

I definitely want a rad with reservoir so maybe get one of these minus the pump then mount the pump slightly away to keep from vibration. Though i would imagine mounting the pump to the rad with rubber shims would help a lot

I actually tried that radiator with MCP350 and it is still too loud. If it was mounted externally with something like a RadBox it would probably be ok but I don't have any interest to mount a rad like that with HAF 932. That rad fits perfectly to top of HAF 932, if only it wasn't so loud.

I'm confused as to how a radiator can generate noise? Its just circulating water?

Pump makes the noise when it has straight metal to metal connection with radiator. Same situation as in this test : http://martinsliquidlab.org/2011/03/10/pump-noise-testing-round-1/

obviously. so wouldn't it make sense to mount the pump with some rubber or foam washers.

Or just separate the pump an rad. this is going in a custom desk for me so it won't go in a case. so i have the option of putting things wherever i want them.

If you have that flexibility why would you choose to put all your beans in one basket in the most confined basket you can get, aka the res/pump/rad product?
