Get a Vario or a Strong D5,not the fixed speed variant.

What's wrong with the fixed speed variant? I've been using mine without issue for the past nearly 2 years now. It runs at a constant 4200 RPM or so and it's quieter than anything else in my system.

There is nothing wrong with it at all but the Vario is normally a similar price and is more powerful @ setting 5 over the fixed setting of 4.

Can't go wrong with a D5 vario and can't go wrong with swiftech

Really all the d5s are the same (aquacomputer aside because of their vision software adaptor) and are all roughly the same price so it is pick the company you like most.

I tend to support companies that support the community most and are active in these forums.

I have been thinking about the plumbing arrangement in my current build but I am very limited in space on a few parts of it. does any one know how wide 90* fittings are with a compression fitting screwed in?

its sort of a problem as the idea I want to run with leaves me with just under an inch of depth to fit a bunch of stuff into

I don't think Swiftech sells their pumps without a top like XSPC / Alphacool / Aquacomputer / etc do. Swiftech isn't worried about people taking their pumps apart (though doing that will void the warranty). They changed their pump warranty policy because they were noticing higher than normal failure rates which they attributed to when their pumps were used with some pump tops from other manufacturers (which is why I don't think they sell their pumps without a top). They changed their pump warranty policy a few years back now so that opening one of their pumps up for any reason, whether just to clean or inspect it, or install a modified pump top, voids it.

If you look on some of the threads from people complaining about it after finding out the hard way. if you bought a Swiftech pump with a modified pump top already installed or purchased a pump top for it on the same order, as soon as Swiftech sees that on your receipt they deny the warranty claim. What's crazy is vendors like PPCs and FrozenCPU both sell Swiftech pumps with Bitspower pump tops already installed so the Swiftech warranty on the pump is shot on your $200 pump before you ever get it. No idea why they would use Swiftech pumps for that, though FrozenCPU's does have an option to get theirs with an Alphacool D5 instead.

Anyway, it's probably a good idea to get your Laing pump with a different reseller's sticker on it other than Swiftech. They're a good company, but there's no good reason to get the pump from them when so many others sell the exact same thing, often for cheaper, and they aren't worried about whether you take it apart to clean it or what pump top you use with it.

Pretty certain the only pump they will pull you up on is the 35X or DDC pumps.....The D5 doesnt have the water ingress concern from a poorly fitted top that the DDC has.

And no D5/DDC in the world costs $200

They do if you order it as a combo from FCPU or PPCS with the pump/top/upgrades!! But the pumps themselves range from about ~80$-130$ US.
