Yea, don't jump the gun at the first reco. Btw, you could have bought a much much better pump and equivalent res for 50 bucks less at jab-tech. The price Jab-tech sells the 35x for, there's no reason to get any other pump ddc/d5 etc imo. Makes no sense!@$% lmaosmiley.gif

^ yeah just needed something asap for work / fun...

Before

After
vGP7q.png

I had to totally retube differently ... I thought I could just replace pump with the elbow joints in the before shot... but the eblow threads where too short and pump threads wouldn't hold... hence the new twist to the loop...

This pump is so much quieter that the koolance -- though idol temps are a little higher ... I also changed out the distilled water for primochill ...pure peformance coolant... hrrrmmm

well back to figuring out what AMD driver runs best with my system... thumb.gif

So I go these two items

Swittech Pump/Rez
primochill tubing

The pump seems to have a leak at the base ... but it only leaks when the computer is off ... I guess the pressure is keeping it from leaking while running... kind of sad .. .but I guess that is what I get for buying something someone else put together.. don't feel like breaking down the loop but will likely have to this weekend to see if I can stop the bleeding...anyway.. just gripping ...

I had the same problem with that crappy m35x res. Mine leaked from two different places when I would shut the PC off (side port and res base where it connects to the pump). It's a piece of garbage if you ask me, I just binned it and bought a Koolance dual DDC single bay (RP-402x2). I tried new o-rings, tightening until I thought it would crack. POS still leaked.

Had I seen this thread before I would have said something. Sorry...

Stupid Question: You did put that small o-ring at the bottom of the res right?

^^ He's right. D5's do tend to last longer.

turns out it could have been my user error .. .firstly ..

this Swittech Pump/Rez needs really long threaded nozzles..

I had elbow swivel joints from koolance that fit fin into the koolance pump... but those elbow nozzles had like 2-3 threads...

you need like 5-8 threads to get the nozzle into the top part of reservoir ...

Next, if you look closely at the reservoir, they have glass threads connnecting the plastic fittings to the glass tube

I think while I was screwing in the nozzles... those glass threads CRACKed... and caused leaks...

FRAGILE !!!!!! I mean I guess it's glass but I was only tightening the new nozzles to the base.

If you buy this rez... be sure to hold the PUMP base not the glass TUBE when tighten the nozzles.

I have it duct taped ... but only stays sealed when the fuild temps are low .. else it leakes.

need to buy another rez - no one to blame but me i guess.. clearly user FAIL or maybe prefab mad.gif

Otherwise if I didn't crap the bed... the pump is quiet and combo pushed fluid well ... keeping my 2x 7970 at high 20c on idle and high 40s low 50s on loads... 2x fesar radiator ...

There's no "glass" on the micro res. It's all acrylic. Don't buy another, you'll have the same problems. And maybe you did over tighten, but I've had the same problems and think it's just the reservoirs quality that is lacking.

The pump is awesome, and it has that PWM control which is fabulous. Get a nice tube res from another company (EK, Phobya, Bitspower etc.) and mount it to the case.
