EK DCP 2.2 Combo Reservoir

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I currently have the EK DCP 4.0. At the moment it is mounted in the bottom of my case. However, since I am getting a new larger PSU (Corsair AX1200i) and also new graphic cards, I will not have possibility of keeping it there since, there will not be enough room for it, partly because of the PSU but also because of the case with hard drives in it. The case is a Fractal Design Define XL R2. Therefore I am in need of a pump which can be mounted in a reservoir in 5,25" slots.

I have a friend who is going to sell his current EK DCP 2.2 and a reservoir for it, so it can be mounted in 5,25" slots.

The loop is going to consist of the following:

CPU: XSPC Raystorm
Rads: 2 x XSPC EX240
GPU: 2 x EK FC Titan SE

So my question is, will the pump be able to handle this? Or should I just consider buying a new Laing DDC (18w) or a D5 and a bay reservoir where they can be mounted?

Thanks for help in advance smile.gif

I don't think its going to be enough. I have the 4.0 with 2 rads, cpu and 3 gpu blocks and it's at its limit. I wouldn't try the 2.0 if it was my pc. Too much expensive hardware you have to risk it.

Hmm yea, I get your point. So you would suggest a Laing DDC or D5 instead?

Personally I like the DDC pumps much better. Especially in your limited space the DDC is way more versatile.
