While noise levels are subjective. The pump will become less noisy, but you are likely still going to hear it unless you put them on PWM or a good (fan) controller to dial it to the level you desire. Also, the difference of putting a pump on a solid-surface (metal, etc.) is roughly 7-16dbA greater then from putting one on a decoupling material (sitting on foam, silicon, egg-crates, etc) or hanging in air via the tubes.

The XSPC Reservoirs with Laing DDC pump mounts are for the most part a XSPC Laing DDC top, so you should see somewhat similar gains. However, I do not share any experience with the former, as I tend to stick to separate pumps and reservoirs for noise-related and other misc. concerns. biggrin.gif

so anybody else have any experience with an ex rad as well? im curious as to how the 360 or 480 perform. If I ever get a bigger case i might upgrade to a 360 and have it run with my 240.

Speaking of which, you guys think a single d5 pump would be sufficient for a cpu, 2 gpus and a 240 and 360 ex?

Check out Bundymania's rad review here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1190800/bundymania-user-review-triple-radiator-360-roundup-16-rads-tested. He included the EX360 along with a bunch of other rads. Unfortunately Skinnee hasn't gotten to reviewing it yet and Martin is still in the process of creating his new rad test bench.

A D5 should be plenty powerful for that I would say. Depends on the restriction of the blocks, but I still wouldn't think it would be a problem.

I have two EX480's with AP-15's in my Tj07, one in the roof and one in the bottom compartment push in the bottom and pull in the top, my load temps at 5.0ghz at 1.50v are better than when I had RX360 and an RX240 before. I have two d5's in series on setting 4 and I am very pleased with the results.

A single D5 will be fine for that loop.
