Nicest looking LED Pump

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, for some reason there are no really nice LED pumps out there, that I know of...

I would like to get a blue LED pump in my machine and really think they could start making some cool looking pumps.

Either way can you guys show me the best "looking" pumps available?

Well the vast majority of pumps are either a DDC or a D5 variant. Pretty much the only way to customize them is to add a different top.

You could get a DDC variant and add the XSPC acrylic top because that has holes to insert LEDs.

Here is my DDC-1 with the XSPC top and some red LEDs:

That is a sick pump!! I'm 100% going to do this when I upgrade my pump which will b when I upgrade my tubing and coolant lol

Is there a tutorial how to put it on the block?

The top comes with a tutorial if I remember correctly.

You can buy an XSPC reservoir top that actually comes shipped with a blue LED.

Well the XSPC acrylic top is here.

If you look on the manuals page, 4th from bottom is a PDF on exactly how to install it on a pump. It also comes with a leaflet inside the box though that is identical to the PDF.

It's not hard to procure your own LED's.

what kind of LEDs are in that?

I'm guessing your are referring to my pump photo. They are just normal 5mm red LEDs. I think I bought an assorted pack of them off of amazon, but you can get them pretty much anywhere.
