D5 655 Vario Vs EK BAY DCP 2.2 COMBO UNIT

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
How does the EK BAY DCP 2.2 COMBO UNIT stand against the D5 655 Vario in terms of Noise, Reliability and Performance? I am sending my XSPC Bay Res and Pump for an RMA but it seems they can only offer me an replacement however the problem is common with the XSPC res where the top gets bent over time and starts to leak, after a few months. I leave my 655 pump at 2.5 speed at most high speed is not a big deal to me. I want quite operation with a good res that wont go on leaking like the XSPC.


This is what I have in mind

and this is what has gone bad, its a design flaw which XSPC has not addressed and the retailer cant really help so..

There is some info on the Jingway pumps here
http://skinneelabs.com/jingway-pumps/

I would def stick with the D5 myself. For the XSPC bay res I would try to stiffen the top cover by inserting a piece of thin stainless steel sheet. Cut it to the right size and drill holes in it and put it under the top plastic cover. That should keep the O-ring compressed and sealed.

I also want to stick with the d5 as well but hate the leaking xspc reservoir. Should I cut a piece from a pc case panel maybe? would that be hard enough or get 1 made from a metal shop?

I have the option of getting these below for around $300

No you need a metal that will not rust and will not interfere with the water in your loop in any way. PC case metal will probably be a bit too thick in any case.

If you cant do it yourself your local metal shop will make up a piece for not much money. It is a simple rectangle shape with some holes drilled.
0.6mm stainless would be plenty.

I have one of the Jingway pumps that has ran 24/7 for 3 years now. It's quite and more reliable than any of the other pumps I've used. It may not have the sheer power of a DDC or a D5 but for cool, quiet and reliability its #1 in my book smile.gif

EDIT: just looked it up and the pump is almost 5 years old thumb.gif

A new reservoir will work of course but it is such a small problem that it seems a waste. If you want a new res that is fine too.

I would just just take the top cover piece to a metal shop

tell them you need a thin stainless piece to match up the sizing and the hole positioning. It will be easy for them to make, they can basically just trace it. Just don't let them use Aluminium or carbon steel.

Thanks, Reps + Everyone... thumb.gif


So now I am deciding between the Monsoon Res for $80 or the EK DD2.2 Jingway Pump for $104.

Never used Danger Den Stuff before and have heard bad things about it last time I remember reading.

Shipping however outside the USA will be $50. Which is ridiculous because when I buy things from OCN I usually have them shipped for $15 - $20 at most. mad.gif

Thanks for the idea, I did consider it but later thought hey, why not just sell it, its a design flaw anyway so why bother risking it and all. It will take me 2 weeks to get the RMA from XSPC hongkong, and then I will have to find a local metal working shop because I dont have the right tools nor can I find a sheet of SS for cheap. So what the hey, why bother and not just get the monsoon res or the ek dcp 2.2. But thanks for the suggestion, I think in the future it will come in handy to a lot of users.

I am leaning towards the monsoon due to being able to use the D5 pump, however I never use more than 1.5 - 2.5 setting on my pump so I dont know. maybe I should rather get the ek dcp 2.2 jingway set instead? I dont know if the dcp 2.2 will be any quiter than the D5 pump at 2. because I can hardly even hear it unless I am 6 inches close to it.

I dont mind circles or anything. tongue.gif
