I just got the 18 wattage, I put it in a silentbox but there is still a audible whirl coming from it. I only run one fan at 750 rpm, that way I hear it even more. Could the 10W version significantly lower the noise? I have read a test comparing them, and only 1-2 dB was the difference, although dB doesn't always give a good measure for hum and whirl noise.

@Starbomba you where looking for a controller for these pumps, did you find anything?

Well, my own pump also makes a distinguishable hum, but it gets drowned by my 6 GT's. It does get heard when i undervolt the fans, but i do not mind that much noise. Heck, i'm used to way higher levels of noise (in the range of 2 38mm Panaflos+2 CM Excaliburs+2 70mm fans on my GTS 450's running @ 100%, it was enough noise to think the case would levitate).

About the fan controller, i abandoned the idea. Most controllers which can handle a pump cost way than the pump itself costs, and as i stated, i do not mind noise much as long as i can drown it with music. For now, both pumps on both my rigs are connected directly to the PSU.

That's cool. I might though be checking out a controller for myself. Just to see how far I can go with it.
How do you connect your pumps directly to your PSU, and for what reason?

Well, i connect it directly to the PSU as i fear overloading my motherboard's fan headers as well as my other fan controller (Sunbeam Rheosmart 3, it is heatsinked and it's supposedly better than my half-burned Vantec Nexus NXP-205, but still, i don't think i'll ever trust a regular fan controller to handle a pump). Plus i don't mind it running at full power.

To connect it i use a molex adapter, much like the ones that come bundled with fans.

I just got the XSPC acrylic top for my DDC-1T. I haven't installed it yet as I'm still waiting for my reservoir. Here is a quick phone pic from when I was playing with LEDs. Not sure what color I'm going to go with. So far my system is white/black with red ram, so maybe I'll stick with red. I'm also not sure how I want to mount it yet. I would like to attach it to the back of my case but I don't really want to drill new screw holes. There are existing holes so maybe I can make a mounting bracket, or there's always velcro I guess.

Nicoliani,

Now that is one neat enclouser arous the pump. Just a small FYI, make a hole in the enclosure to allow cooling of the pump base.

Nice work !
