Martin,
Do you think that XSPC res. top would work well on a swiftech 350 pump body?

Yes, It's the best top I've tested.

Assuming this is a newer model.

The DDC 3.1 or Swiftech MPC350 is the exact same pump as the 3.2 in the testing except the voltage is lower. You could also modify either one to go either way, it's simply a soldering bridge that needs to be added to make a 3.1 become a 3.2 (18w).



I've had sever people request that I run the same series of test with a 3.1, havn't done it yet, but I suspect I'll get the same results on a lower scale.

are you really sure about that?
would be great as the 3.1 is cheaper than the 3.2. @ aquatuning.de

hmm, wait.. does that work on Apogee Drive units too?

That's what everone is telling me. Ira knows about it, and Alex from Petra's told me the same thing.

It only makes sense, they manufacture one pump, and one has a bridge unsoldered for folks that want less noise.

I'm going to try and unsolder my bridge so I can test at 3.1 performance.

Thanks.Nice vid's......I can see why the XSPC is flowing so much better since its not loosing its velocity in a vortex...I like watching those little res "Tornado's" but if you can get one with-out it you would sure be better off....

Nice mountain road you were riding there...That brought back some nice memories of Oregon, I like how it smells there on a nice misty Spring morning..Love it...

hmm, i just noticed... the bigger of the 2 contacts you have to bridge, it look like a 4th in the row of wire contacts. this really reminds me of PWM fans. is that just a coincidence?
what makes this more likely, is that the second and 4th seem to be bridged too. I once read that when the +12v and PWM line are bridged, a PWM fan would always run at max speed. since this pump also has an RPM sensor-wire, it wouldnt bee too surprising if it supported PWM control.

So adding that little solder bridge on my 9w/350's would change them to 18w/355's?

Yeah, but it has to be the newer version (Blue impeller) models bought recently.

Here is a picture of the back of my three DDC pumps. You can see they are all different, probably like 20 different versions over the years.

Sometimes changes occur to the PCB and you would never even know unless you opened it up.

Nice comparison there Martin, if you still need some fittings etc for the EK G3/8" Top drop me a PM bud i'll send you some EK ones over..

I've also been very interested in there idea of a High Flow top, im not all that convinced it will make much difference but you are the man to tell us this
