System running great now..











Still got many things to do;
1. Custom cables
2. Front panel
3. USB 3.0 I/O port
4. Changing top rad from RX to EX (don't like RX coz too thick)
5. Changing few angle fittings (to adjust the tube for better route)
6. Thinking to change the hose to UV Red coz clear gets cloudy very fast (anyone knows how to avoid this?)

Received a PM from a member today and I think I will share the answer here so other members also can benefit from it and maybe we can discuss further if someone have a different opinion.

Hi mate, I'm following your awesome build log and I've seen that you are running 2 radiators and 2 waterblocks with an alphacool dc lt pump.
Is it a good pump for a complex loop like yours ? I want to watercool my a05 too and I can't decide between Ek dcp2.2 and Alphacool Dc Lt.
Is it a silent pump ?
Thank You

My answer is;
Hello Luke,

Yes. The Alphacool DCLT runs very well and very silent.

I have tried with Koolance pump before and this Alphacool sure is a winner. I ordered 2 units but only using 1 as I found out that 1 is enough. Just keep the extra unit for backup.

I also run it via the mobo PWM header on my MIVG and now the mobo controls all the fans and pump speed. Don't need a speed controller and this saves me space. This is very important in a small case build.

Hope this answer can help you and others that still looking for a small and compact pump solution.

Thanks.
