The DDC-3 series of 18W@12VDC tends to require a heavy duty fan controller to drive it. These fan controllers are more expensive.
If a person wants to control the pump speed, a 10W pump offers more options.
FYI -> A 10W pump runs much cooler than the 18W pump

25 bucks for 30watts per channel, they arent too expensive unles syou want the really flashy ones.

Thread Starter 
im positive i already chose my fan controllers listed in the first post.

and yes my pump of choice is 18w. but i was advised by an experienced watercooler that because of my design i would need alot of head preassure. also i know about ddc pumps drawing more power on startup. thats why i have chosen a fan controller with more power output. yes its more than double the power output but it matches my build theme and is within budget.


all i need now is the molex to 3pin fan adapter.
