post #7691 of 10491

When you say "Feature", do you mean PWM?

Is your D5 the MCP655 or the MCP655 PWM? PWM is better, but you need a way to control it. If it's just a plain D5 with no pot and no pwm then you can only voltage control it. That's what that Lamptron Controller will do. Voltage Control.

 

I'd personally go with the D5 Vario (with the knob) or PWM. It's up to you though.

Or i'd go with an MCP35x (PWM) or MCP355. Or you could just get an Apogee Drive II which has a MCP35x built into the CPU Block. Then you can just get a horizontal res mounted above it.

Yes, I got the bone stock MCP655 without PWM. I didn't know I'd be able to stick on that controller and do it that way since I thought that would only be able to tell me the pumps RPM and not actually control it like a fan? I know the other Lamptrons can do it because they have flow sensors and what not but I didn't know the one I linked you could do that as well.

The Apogee looks real nice but I probably just a get PWM for the time being. I'm not planning on WCing my cards so I don't need the extra heat and flow rates of the 35x

The Apogee is PWM. It's the 35x :p

 

No controller that i know of comes with flow sensors. Some flow sensors can be connected to fan controllers, but that's specific to the flowmeter usually. 

The Lamptron you linked has 30W per channel, that should be enough for a D5. 

 

D5's have better flowrates. DDC's have more head pressure for restrictive loops. I recommended the Apogee Drive II/MCP35x because it's much smaller than a D5. Not because of it's extra head pressure. Fitting pumps can be challenging in the XB, especially D5's. Apogee Drive II is a neat and tidy solution.

Aw, but what am I gonna do with my new EK Supremacy Gold block? tongue.gif

Hey gurus, I'm trying to get some cathodes into my XB EVO up under the lip inside each side of the case There's these L-brackets I want to get it under, but they're held on with the same bolts as most of the case, and I'm not sure how to get them out.

They're not screws, and they don't release with pressure, or not the amount I applied.

Rivets my friend, sent you a PM

Aw, I was hoping to find some other way than drilling 'em out but that's what it'll come to. Case is started to look really slick. Thanks Jugurnot.

Ohhh, i see. That Gold Supremacy looks sick. I switched my Apogee Drive for a Supremacy also =)

Just drill em out with a 1/8" drill bit. Should only take a few seconds

Even though you can put a cloth down underneath to cover all your mobo from metal pieces, I HIGHLY recommend you stripping the case down completely before doing any drilling. It only takes a tiny piece to short out a circuit, and you wouldn't even see it.

It's 90mm tall. I might just do what you guys did and mount a 150 rez on to the side panels.

I managed to fit an EK 250 res horizontally in the top of the left side panel. It's a bit of a pain to get that side panel on and off but worth the extra fluid feeding my dual DDC 3.25 pumps.





My pump set-up is located in below the mobo tray directly under the res. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics.
