suggestions on another friend's WC

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
thanks for helping me build a WC for my friend, its working well and he is getting sub-50 temps highly OC'd (E6300 at 3.5GHz and 1.525VCore)

now one of my other friends wants a decent WC system with a 3X120mm rad and d-tek gpu and cpu blocks. I got the blocks, masterkleer tubing, clamps, fans, MCRES, and now i got the rad and pump to debate over

his system, btw, is power guzzling:
P4 Prescott 3.4GHz OC to 4GHz (temps limited OC more than anything)
ATI x1900xtx
so they may need better, idk
rad: Swiftech MCR-320 or Stealth 360? which is better? the BIS has a "u" dual pass tubing, idk if the MCR does. and the stealth has better fin design for less pressure drop; so i am leaning towards that as it is only ~$10 more

pump: i am considering a few, swifty 3xx's or a MCP655 but he wants a small good pump; any other good pumps that are not swifty?

the fans i got were 4.99 Sunon 95cfm from ebay, it was like $2 ship for each so it was a good deal. they are ~41dB but o well he doesnt care about noise that much anyway

they're both thin models.
i'd personally go for the Stealth.
Pump: D5's are great. or a DDC with Petra's custom top. both are small.
EDIT: just noticed they are the exact pumps you mentioned -_-' (never really looked at the numbers)
for 100 bucks, the DDC with petra's top is awesome. 933 LP/H and 5.76m head for the 18w version.

Almost all WC pumps are either the Laing D5 or Liang DDC for good reason.

http://www.lainginc.com/

The DDC is noticably smaller than the D5. However, it is native 3/8" so a top for 1/2" will make the pump more expensive.
Once again...

what if i went with a Swiftech MCP355? he has a ATX but mini tower case and the triple rad is going on top so a lot of head may be needed, and he has minimal space inside for pump and etc. (he wants pump inside)

Yeah they are not bad pumps..They de-tuned them so they are just a little more powerful then the D-5 now but they are suppsed to be more durable now also...This is about the cheapest place I've found the pump and top combo...

Google is your friend...The Swifty 355 is just a re-branded 18W Laing DDC...Swifty under reports their spec's a little I don't know why but the 18W Swifty and the 18W Laing are the same pump....The Laing D-5 and the Swifty 655 are the same pumps...Thats pretty common knowledge...
