Koolance RP-1250 Res/Pump combo. Anyone with experience that they would share?

Koolance RP-1250 Reservoir and Pump

I am thinking about getting this unit to save some space in my build. It seems like it should work ok, but I would like to hear if anyone has real world experience with this res/pump combo? Especially as far as long term reliability, ease of use, noise and effectiveness in a CPU/2xGPU loop?


Thanks!

No one? Damn.

Is it because the product is too new or (hopefully not) because it isn't something anyone in their right mind would use!?! arrowheadsmiley.png

In case anyone is wondering (hey, you never know! wink.gif ) it is really easy to mod the LEDs on this unit. I switched them from the stock blue to red. You just need some small heatshrink, a couple 5mm red LEDs, a little soldering, and some clear silicone sealant!
Before (stock):

After (red):

Took pic without flash to get the red to really show up well. But looks great in regular light!

I received a message asking about the fan controller on the RP-1250 and thought I should add my experience so far.

The fan controller works well regulating the fan speed on these non-PWM fans: SilverStone SST-AP123, Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15 and Corsair SP-120 (both PWM and standard worked)
The BitFenix Spectre Pro 140mm Fan - Red LED (BFF-LPRO-14025R-RP) also worked.

However, it does not seem to work with NB-eLoops or NB-BlackSilentPro non-PWM fans. They will only spin with the fan controller set to 100%. I haven't had the opportunity to test the PWM version of these fans yet. I think that they should work with the RP-1250 though.

Oh my lord that's coming up as $300 on their website. Please tell me you didn't spend that on what is, in effect, a $70 pump and a $50 bayres.

Not sure how that is helpful, but no I did not pay $300. However I did pay more than what is, in effect, $120. Considering, at the time, that I needed an all-in-one, single bay solution, this fit the bill. thumb.gif

It's a good looking unit, but I saw $300 on their site and my jaw almost dropped through my desk. In terms of your fan control issue, I know someone had a NB fan which only started at 10.8v, but apart from that I don't have much to offer in the way of help.

No worries! I am most likely going to switch out my NB-eLoop B12-4's with Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15's... if I can find enough of them. Then my only concern will be if the RP-1250 can power 10 fans off of its three connectors. thinking.gif

It's a lot more than that though. It's computer that controls fans and pumps and monitors temps and flow rates.

thumbsupsmiley.png What he said! You can program the controller to automatically adjust fan speed/pump rate at certain temps, as well as shutdown the comp if the temp gets too (critically) high.
