that is the "b" version which has way less flow and head then the d4. it is cheaper and is a better pump IMO. if you were to get the d5, get the vario version (like i have) since the flow is WAY higher.

The price on the pump is a little steep, you can get the MCP655 vario elsewhere for $10 less and it is a better pump. If you wanted to cut costs down, you can get some 7/16 masterkleer that costs around $0.50/ft. Those res are nice, but if you wanted to cut costs some more you can use a t-line, or a micro res that go for under $20. Not as pretty as the ek res, but they get the job done. You can also get a triple rad for just a few dollars more.

I like shopping a petras, but sidewinders also has good prices too.

exactly. the d4 is basicly a non vario d5 and it is a bit louder. performance pc's seams to be a bit more expensive then other shops.

yeah sorry i thought it was the d5

The D4 is slightly better than a D5-B, with the D5-Vario beating them both by a good margin.

Also, don't get the Black Ice GTS rads. They are really restrictive. If you're on a budget, go with the Swiftech MCR series. You also need to order some PT Nuke. Here's a list below for you.


CPU Block

Pump - D4 or D5-Vario

Radiator

Reservoir - If you're dead set on that res, go ahead and order it on FrozenCPU. It's OOS at Petras.

Same for tubing

PT Nuke
