EK-XTOP DDC 3.2 PWM Elite Pump

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So i'm making the change from my R5E to the R5E 10, as such i'm thinking now would be a good time to replace my ever faithful 3 year old Koolance PMP-450S. While it's been a great pump and i've had no problems so far I though i'd be proactive and replace it in the process, I've never used a DDC pump before and coming from a D5 I wanted peoples thoughts on both the pump I have in mind 'EK-XTOP DDC 3.2 PWM Elite Pump' and DDC pumps in general.

I've done some reading so far and have noticed several people mentioning that heat is more of a factor in DDC pumps than D5's, i'm not terribly concerned about noise though but it is a consideration. Knowing and experiencing EK's build quality I don't think there will be any problems, however the pump is one of the more important components to my loop and would like my new one to ideally have the same longevity as my old Koolance D5.

I'll leave it up to you to do the unit conversions.

Thanks for the response, I hadn't noticed EK had a d5 pwm offering. I've rethought my replacement and will likely be going with the ek pwm d5 and xtop revo d5. I've never had thermal issues with the pmp-450s so I don't think there will be any problems with a pwm d5.
