Nice setup
Only thing I would have recommended would have been getting a solid pump from the start.

I'm on my third pump for my setup
first one started to leak from the seams when loop was not running and at that only drips every now and then (slow leak had it in my rig for months before rebuilding my loop) was already a year old before starting to leak though probably can fix it myself if needed.

Second one decided to stop working after a few weeks ( X2O 750 v4 pump/res)
Really liked the look of this unit as well, but kinda iffy on getting another xspc pump again.

Third pump because I didnt feel like RMAing my X2O and merely placed a mcp655 after the rez without draining my loop completely. So far this is a great pump to own

Though on the other hand I have a cheap $15 pump that still pumps strong

Remember to message the seller asking if he has any. He has items that he doesn't list in his store. !

Already talked about the pump sound a few times. It's quiet, my power supply is louder than the pump at 50%.

My general understanding is that now, many prefilled loop's results are comparable to custom loops, and much more cheaper. Custom loops are pretty much for enthusiasts now.

Nope. Custom loops are still pretty much alive and around because ALL pre-filled loops still lose to some air of the same price and performance as well
A H100 at full blast is loud and doesn't give lower temps than a Sliver Arrow SB-E and the SB-E is quieter

Right ... nobody complained about the pump and a "solid" pump is a nasty amount of money. What do you call solid then? If it works for me (I also got a 20$ pump i keep somewhere) that works fine without leaking, all i ever use it for is my fish tank with tubes tongue.gif

That sounds more like idle voltage. I think that cpu would use somewhere in the 1.2v+ under load no?

I'm a little concerned. My order hasn't shipped yet and almost everything is now gone from that seller. There are only a few parts left in each category. My order says that if it doesn't ship in the next 30 hours it will automatically be cancelled.

If you are still looking for a cheap pump you can get a Laing DDC-1 from Bmaverick for $35 shipped.
