Opinions of the Swiftech Maelstorm res + MCP35X2?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Thinking about going more custom than my current XSPC loop and this caught my eye when browsing. Haven't heard much about the res before, but have heard a lot of great things about the MCP35X2.

Anyone using one of these res's/combo's?

Not using one myself, but am using a single mcp35x. Beast of a pump flowing through 480mm rad, gpu, cpu and ram. Planning to add a 2nd when I get another gpu in my loop.

I personally prefer tube reservoirs but believe someone on here was advocating the maelstrom reservoir.

I too do not use one myself, but I have heard pretty good things about it thus far. I think Swiftech in general is a good company that makes pretty solid quality products. And as teamrushpntball said, the MCP35x is a beast of a pump when it comes to performance. thumb.gif

Excellent! I'm planning on going to a switch 810 soon with a CPU (raystorm?), 2xGPU, 360 + 240 rad (was thinking black ice, good choice?), do you think the 35X2 is overkill for that or would a single perform fine? Only reason I'm really looking at the maelstorm is because it can fit the X2, but if I don't need that I'll def be going single pump + res top smile.gif

thx for the quick replies btw!

You should be able to get by with 1 MCP35x, since it has a superior head pressure to other pump styles. That being said, you could always start with one and try it out. If the flow isn't too your liking, you can add another one after that. thumb.gif Looks like a nice setup you are about to have though, good luck and have fun!

I regret not going with these pumps.. D5's dump too much heat into the loop and are hella noisy.

While D5's do dump a bit more heat into the loop, DDC's are noisier than D5's on average.

Its a quality bay res and provides a lot of flexibility since you can install dual pumps on it in a compact manner.

I had 1 myself i used once but ultimately deiced on a different look and the built in coolant temp sensor is a nice feature.

True, I may just go with a single pump setup then. Any top's or top/res youd recommend? And it's still a ways away... the better half is nagging for a new mattress so that may delay this a bit rolleyes.gif

Wow, thats impressive and no joke about monster flow. Starting to lean more and more toward a single pump.

I'd heard that, one of the big reason's I'm checking out these 35X's... can't do noise.
