Need some input from DD Case owners.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a DD Tower 29 LDR and I am putting some new parts in it. I would like to know from other owners or anyone that has hard mounted a pump to the case how much louder it has gotten from say having it on a foam surface. I have a picture to give an idea of how it looks right now.

I really dont like the ugly foam matting at the bottom but its dead quiet when the pump sits there. But I can get a HDD bracket/ pump bracket for the spot next to the Other HDD cage. But if I hard mount the pump I do not know how much louder it will get.




The pump is the CPX Pro-1 And will switch to a D5 soon. Also has anyone mounted the CPX on the side or any other position than just sitting up right?

Thanks guys for any help.

I've got a Phobya and EK version of that pump and it's loud at full speed even when isolated from the case. It quietens down at 5v but then may not have enough flow for your loop.

A Shoggy Sandwich will go some way to removing some of the noise but as I mentioned before the pump is loud at full speed anyway.

Edit: If you're mounting the pump on the side of the case rather than the base then the glue holding the Shoggy Sandwich together won't be strong enough so you'll have to use some stickier stuff.

Interesting. So the bracket I will be getting if I go the mounted route I could place that sandwich underneath the pump and let it sit on the bracket rather than the pump itself being screwed to the bracket. It also is roughly 3.5 inches and would fit perfectly in the normal HDD cage. I am trying to dig up some pictures of the DD Pump mount and see what it looks like. Thanks for the advice Elf. +1 Rep.

I have that case with a MCP 655 and I drilled some holes in the inner wall of the case to mount it and while I've leak tested it(my fans are incredibly loud deltas so normally I wouldn't hear the pump anyways)it's near dead silent. I'll post some pictures soon to show the orientation of it.


Edit: Here's the best photo I could grab quickly with my phone before I run to work, but you should be able to get the idea. Now drilling holes into acrylic is not fun, but this solution worked out great for me. If noise was a concern for me,(which it isn't) I've found there's relatively 0 noise with the pump mounted this way apart from a VERY small hum which I don't think can be avoided. Hope this helps a little, you can always send me a PM if you want details on how I mounted it.

I see now. You mounted it near what I had to begin with where as mine wasn't mounted though. Now using the bracket provided from DD in your case would still be silent, provided that I use a sound mat or absorption material it could work from what I am gathering. This solution I am thinking would allow me to not drill anything and use what they made to my advantage for the pump.
