1. I've read that the fittings do not come off the hoses. Is this in fact the case? If so, am I correct in assuming the fitting are still removable from the block and rad?
2. The pump being used seems to be a DDC 3.1 6W pump. Would the head pressure of that smaller variant be enough to sufficiently overcome 3 blocks, an evo mx and two EK 980 strixs, and the included radiator?
3. In regards the the second question, is the pump upgradable to a stronger DDC variant?

Thx in advance...

Hi,

official answers from EKWB biggrin.gif
1. Not true. Fittings come off but its not an easy task. We dont glue them in or anything, but its a tight fit. If you don't need the tube you can cut it to release the fitting.
2. DDC 3.1 6W pump, designed specially for this purpose. Strong enough for 3 blocks.
3. No, the pump is not upgradeable, it fits the position on the Radiator and other variants have different dimensions. UPDATE; R&D Chief confirms you can upgrade the pump to stronger DDC version.

Regards
Mark

Yes it is. Any Laing/Xylem DDC series pump will fit.

Can anyone speak a bit about the amount of vibration coming off their pumps?

I find that the vibration is causing a noticeable and annoying hum. I have a 360 that I've mounted to the front of my case and its so prominent that if I grab touch anywhere on my case I can feel it vibrating. I even feel it in my desk and on my keyboard!

Is it possible my unit has issues?

pretty sure that's the NZXT monitor that's from the X61, etc.

As much as I want to get the Predator 360, looks like I have to do a slight mod to my Luxe to fit it, since my mobo power is located at the top.

I have a 360 with only 4 screws holding it in place. No vibration or hum. Basically silent

You can still use the next software to fan curve even without a kraken?
