Hmmm...you have the Laing D5-MCP655?....that's quite an expensive pump, it's â‚¬84,99 here, plus I need a EK-D5 X-TOP so I can mount the G1/4 fittings for the 5/16 tubes which is like â‚¬30.-
If a Laing DDC-1Plus MCP355 will do (which is not variable), it'll save me some money
Since I'm still using 1/4" ID Norprene, flow is not a major concern as with 5/16 or 1/2" ID tubing.
Swiftech pumps are pretty cheap here in Canada. Two MCP355 with tops add up to about 125â‚¬ + tax + shipping. One MCP655 with EK top is 100â‚¬ + tax + shipping.
If I believe my Koolance electronic flow meter, I have approximately only 0.4GPM of flow and most OCN WC experts recommend at least 1 or 1.5GPM. The 4 chiller blocks seem to be very restrictive.
This is Ultrasonic's dual pump setup that I plan to use:
The bypass helps to save some of the flow that would be lost normally in a normal dual pump setup.
I forgot to mention how I setup everything externally.
I pulled a PCI-E cable and a whole Molex line through the 1" tube grommets I have in the back of the case so the MTEC control board is external too.
I got a USB adapter to be able to plug it externally too. I also use Koolance Low Profile Quick Disconnects to separate the external part if I need to move the casing.
It will be much easier to move the external parts around after I build my Ghetto Boreas stand:
