New pump For Nautilus500

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
EDIT: Somehow I placed this in the wrong forum (sorry). Would a moderator please move it to the water cooling forum? Thanks.

This is my first experience with liquid cooling and I decided to try out the Nautilus500. After hearing good reviews, a dirt cheap price, and a good experience with my brother's nautilus, I decided to buy one myself. I now have it set up and running. The only change I made was swapping out the fan for a quieter fan with about the same airflow. The pump that comes with it is rather annoying. It's really high-pitched and when the case is tightened, I can hear the high-pitched vibration that just gives me a headache. I loosed the screws a bit and it let up some, but I think I want to swap pumps.

I've heard great things about the DD12V-D5 and I was wondering if I should purchase it. The only problem is that it seems much too big to fit inside the
Nautilus unit. Does anyone have any ideas for modding this unit to get a pump like that to work it's magic?

While I'm here, I have a few more questions to ask.
1. I'm considering getting a Danger Den GPU block for my ATI x1900xtx. How do I go about adding that to my loop? Is there any splicing of cables? What materials do I need?

2. If I swap the pump, should I swap the radiator too? Any suggestions?

3. Are there any other liquids that I should add to my loop (and how much of each)? As of now, I just poured in the coolant that came with the unit and added my distilled water as it pumped (as in the directions).

4. Is a new CPU block worth my money or should I stick with my stock one? Whatever block I do buy needs to be compatable with both socket 939 (current cpu) and socket 775 since I'm buying a Core 2 Duo 6700 soon. (throw me some mobo suggestions if you like).

Here is a pic from a different thread http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...light=nautilus

EDIT: Old air cooling was a thermalright XP90c heatisink and a vantec tornado fan.

I bought one of the Swifty 18w pumps they come with the mounting lugs on the lower part of the pump..I turned it sideways and mounted it sideways took all the noise out of it with the solid mount, of coure I never did hear the original one anyway...I had to change the res's out to a Swifty micro-res to get it to work out though...I went ahead and put in a BI Pro radiator to get the aluminum out of the loop....I bought one of the Radiical Turbo-Top heads for it getting around 600lph and 20ft of head with it,Radiical is in Australia heads around $40.00 and $10.00 shipping great customer service.Tricia down there is a real sweetheart, she will help you if you have any questions or problems...Even with the 10w pump it gives you around 340lph measured through a rad and WB...I have nothing left of the Nautilus but the plastic shell, I was going to use it for my main CPU cooler but it's such a pain in the neck to change over to 1/2 tube I' just going to a internal rig for CPU and use the Nautilus later on for a hard drive cooler or something non-essential like that...In my opinion I would not waste much money upgrading one much more than you already have....Once you get in to this WC a little more you want be satisfied with it...It's a good bang for buck rig like it comes....Did you try to wedge the pump in a little more snugly?Don't loosen the pump screws any it might make it start sucking air,not good you can cause cavitation doing that .....Hope this helped some, bottom line don't waste a lot of your money on upgrades like I did it's just not worth it....EDIT: BTW there is a thread called "Are Thermichill Radiators Worth The Price" it's on page 2 here in WC section...Down towards the bottom I tell in more detail what I did and left a few pic.s if your interested...

Get some rubber washers on that sucker. If you really want a new pump for it snag my Swiftech MCP-350 for $43 shipped (if you live in the lower 48).
