Which water pump and pump to get

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My CPU block/pump combo took a crap.

I don't know what the best option is for me to rebuild.

Are any of the ek water blocks better than the others? I'd like to go with ek unless there is a better option. This will be going on a 4930k.

The pump is where I'm really lost. I have no idea where to put it in my loop, or how to mount it. Of course everyone recommends a d5, but I'm confused about the differences between them.

I do have a 3.5 and a 5.25 slot available.

I have a 3.5 bay res.

As for the Ek waterblocks no personal experience with those but they seem to cool well, ive used Heatkillers and Koolance cpu-380i and both did good for me maybe have a look at the new Heatkiller IV pro cpu block and the new Koolance cpu-390i check reviews online.

Isnt a single 360 rad enough for a cpu loop only...because i presume you have a 360 rad above your case and a 240 rad on the bottom. I see enough place for a D5 pump with top/res combo like the ones Ek sells where the 240 rad is situated now ie you could remove the 240 rad OR place the d5/res combo on top of your 240 rad there are brackets to allow your pump/res combo to be attached to the radiator either vertical or flat mount.

Like this:

I see beneath your 5,25 inch bay another attachment dont know what it is or if it is removable if you have no use for it and you can remove it then i would remove it to make place for your d5 res combo as to not conflict with a long gpu card the D5/res combo should fit placing it on your right side of your 240 rad with this d5 res combo:

If placed on your left side of your 240 rad it might interfere with the gpu ie reservoir touching your gpu hence why to remove (if you can) the attachment under your 5.25 bay then problem solved.

Most people go with D5 since they are reliable.

Hope this helps

Sorry i thought you where thinking about getting a D5 pump bit confused my bad. Did you had bad temps with your current setup? If not why the change? You could change the cpu block to any a ek water block or heatkiller and use the same pump you have now. If you ever want to cool your gpu as well then see my first post it will allow that setup as well with ease.

Thank you for your input! My combo water block/pump is warped and will not seal. That is why it is being replaced.

My GPU is also in my loop, that's why I have 2 rads. Also, I forgot that 5.25" bay is being used (have a 2 TB drive). I need to find out if I have an enclosure for just one 5.25" drive that I can use for my 2 TB and then move my SSD to the open 3.5" bay. If I can't do that, then I don't know where the pump is going to go. I will find out tonight when I get home

Thanks for the pics of mounting a pump on a rad.

In that case if you go with the d5 pump res combo as a side note your current pump is situated in your 5.25 bay if you place the pump on top of your 240 rad then use the space in your 5.25 bay for your harddrives and ssd. Honestly the 5.25 bay should have enough room for 2 hdd's and a ssd (which there are brackets for ie 3.5 bracket to 5.25). What i am referring to is that little section beneath the 5.25 i can see a fan underneath it atleast i think so if thats a fan that is the section one needs to remove for the pump/res combo. Anyway good luck with any option you going to take.

I assume that is a bay res you have? If not you will proably want to get a res also.

The uni bracket that Cobra26 mentioned is perfect to put the D5 pump or pump/res combo on top of the fan you have in front of the PSU, seems like the best place to me.

EK EVO, HeatKiller IV, Raystorm Pro are all good CPU blocks. If you want to save a few bucks then the EK MX or original Raystorm blocks are good compromises for cost vs. performance.

Are your radiators aluminum or copper?

You should use this opportinity to completely flush the loop and change to new tubing and fresh coolant also, best time to do it when the loop is torn down.
