replace ThermalTake 760 si pump w/ aftermarket

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm pretty sure I'm going to hear about it for even owning one of these but I was naive when I bought it so lets just leave it at that. the system managed to survive to the end of its warranty plus a month so at least I got what I paid for.

Anyway, long story short my pump died. I'm looking into getting an after market pump with more reliability than the ThermalTake reputation on replacement parts. I'm hoping someone knows of a pump that I can use that's compatible with a minimum of adapters but I'm not going to hold my breath.

I do plan on modifying my system in the future so it runs externaly but for now I'd just be satisfied getting it working again.

my budget for this DIY repair is between $60-100 and any help would be great.

signed,

Ryo

Well first up even I once considered purchasing a Thermaltake P500 pump because I was short on the money rolleyes.gif But there are pumps which are so much better.
There are the budget pumps like the EK DCP 4.0 which is pretty damn noisy but it does what it's meant to do and is pretty reliable.
Everyone would tell you to get the Laing D5 pumps, but I would like to be special and say; get the Laing D5's (:
They cost around $99 down in Australia, and should be around 70 in the currency up there.

that was a fast reply, thanks for the info!

are pumps like this ususally universal? I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to liquid cooling. I had someone else install it form me because I was squimish on the whole project. I don't know dickens about them because it almost seems like you have to be a plumber to install the dang things.

Yes they are, by universal do you mean the thread sizes for the outlet/inlet of the pump?

Pumps can fit in any case, it just depends on how you install it

That little piece o'poo? I'd get an EK DCP2.2 which costs around $30 and has the same flow rate at a much higher head pressure.

And it is not as big as the fat-arse DCP 4.0 (I have one and it's a beast, but it's big and can be quite loud at maximum speed), so you won't have a too bad of a time trying to make it fit in tight places.

The EK DCP4.0 is really loud, I have one and I used it for 2 months straight and it wouldn't stop rumbling, would get anyone to steer away from it.

Spending some money on a quality pump like a D5, shove it in your system and let it humm silently in your case. Money well spent.
I regret spending money on an EK DCP4.0 which at the time was only $20 cheaper than a proper D5.
