Changing Res + Pump

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey All,

Currently, I'm using on of these: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=WC-140-XS&groupid=962&catid=2133&subcat=1845


I was just wondering if I'd be better of going with seperate res and pump, I had these in mind:

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=WC-320-BP - Res

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=WC-103-AQ - Pump

I need to remount my cpu block soon.. so I was thinking I might switch out.

Ideas? Advice?

Honestly, if you already have a D5 pump and that res, I don't see a need for you to change it (unless you REALLY want to, or you want to go with a different look for your loop). What you have is more than good enough for your loop. So are you "better off"? No. Could you do it if you wanted to and had the money? Yes.

you really don't need to thats a great pump and the res doesn't affect anything as long as it holds water, but if you do and there is nothing wrong with your pump/res lemme know wink.gif i've got a 750 pump/res from XSPC and its suffering from the horrid grinding noise.

Thanks for the replies guys.

I'm not sure what I'll be doing yet, but I will probably stick with the D5.
I've just seen loads of new builds around various forums using the Aquastream

and wondered if it was worth switching, if not, then I'll stay put for the time being.

Eheim pumps are designed for low flow, medium pressure. There's a reason that Aquacomputer doctored up a D5. D5's are designed for medium pressure, high flow.
