I've used both MCP655 Vario (D5) and the MCP35X (DDC) and both are great pumps. Either would work in your loop. I like the MCP35X a bit more than the MCP655 just because of the PWM feature. There is a PWM version of the D5 out now as well. I'd say go with the MCP35X for the extra head room(and pressure) just in case you ever decide to add another GPU and more radiators. Like I said though D5 and DDC are both good choices.

I have no experience with the DCP pumps though so I can't give any input on those.

Alright thanks, I think im gonna go with the variable D5 tho still open to other views.

I know the DDC has better pressure but if im adding that much more stuff to my loop, I would prolly go with 2 D5's
