Looking at getting some new tubing and Pump

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am going to be doing some unexpected maintenance on my loop due to my vairo D5 pump which is over a year old unexpectedly died on me. I haven't not deiced which D5 variant that i am going to go with but I am kind of stuck between another vairo or PWM based. I am also considering this one http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_201&products_id=36430 since the aquaero is one of the items that's currently on my wish list. The D5 is the only pump I am considering since I have the upgrade kit for rez, dress kit, and V2 pump top.

As for tubing, I am using Durelene but I am looking to get try something else. Been having some bad luck with is as of late with it clouding and after a bit it seems to turn a slight yellowish tinge. I am kinf of unsure If I want to try this again since I had a batch that I bought 4 months ago went cloudy in less then a week. I have been hearing some good stuff about Primochill's Advanced tubing and over a year ago I would not have touched primochill due to some of the issues they were having with plasticizer leeching. Is the new stuff good to use? I should also mention that I will be using Mayhems pastel coolant with what ever tubing that I decide to go with.

The D5 Vario seems to be a good fit since your setup has the other D5 mods. The PWM version may not lend itself to be all that flexible for mod'ing.

Can you elaborate / explain on that please?

I have 6 of them, and a bunch of 35X's, and wouldn't buy anything but a PWM pump any more.

For tubing you definitely want the Primochill Primoflex Advanced LRT, it's the only one in the market confirmed to not cloud after time, and the only one I'd really ever buy.

The only thing I can think of that might give you issues is the D5 Mod kit with a PWM version due to extra wires would be sleeving. I can just about barely slide my sleeved wires though the hole on the back of the mod kit. The quick fix would be to drill the hole wider. I just decided to just to go with another vario since the PWM versions seem to be a extra 15-20 bucks on average and I barely touch the speed on the D5 from 2 unless I am bleeding the system.

I will give it a shot. The only thing I am not sure of is the sys-prep that it comes with..... To use or not to use headscratch.gif what effect will this have on my copper and nickle blocks and how will any residue left over if any will react with my Mayhems coolant? (might have to direct that one towards the mayhems forum)

Thanks everyone
