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.


MEDIC!!!! ..... look how sad my rig is now .. sigh - pump in a vase ... the duct tape works until the fuild gets to hot and it leaks b/c the tap adhessiv thenn gets hot.. I can do work and play SWTOR but no oc on BF3 ..

I would say get a swiftech micro res and use that instead of using a res pump top combo thing.

Ohh snap, then it's not the same as what I had. I bought the Swiftech res top that you could mount to the MCP35x without taking the original top off so I wouldn't void the warranty. I'm destined to void warranties I guess. rolleyes.gif
