Ok Mad, just curious, why retap the screw holes? Sure m4's are heavier duty, but in this situation, it's not any benefit unless it's just an aesthetic issue, then ok. Hmmmm?

M3 are way too puny for my liking. Too much wiggle room and I don't feel safe w/ those holding large and heavy rads. Plus i have about 200 black M4 30mm hex screws. The bottom rads will be custom mounted so the less room for error, the easier my job. I strongly think M4 should be the standard screw size.

Probably aesthetic. I nerded out big time with my build making sure that all my screws were color-matched, had my preferred head design, and were metric.

I prefer hex head as its less likely to strip the head. I have a Husky ratchet driver which helps a lot (especially w/ a sprained hand).

Ok. Was just wondering.

Honestly, its no contest, bigger is better here imho tongue.gif






Its a pita and dangerous to re-tap but I just prefer to use this size. I could have done 6-32 but I have a bunch of M4 screws already. If one don't want to risk it, just stick to the stock screws. I love that Alpha cool has a blocking plate otherwise, use a small metal plate to ensure you don't run the bit and the tap through the channels.

I do put some effort into functionality w/ formality. But overall I just don't have the patience to go super attention to detail like some of you guys (and it shows as beautiful builds).

ok guys, been having a little play with the Alphacool DC-LT pumps, against a D5, well im very happy,

pics of the set up, i know how to kill of your loop
think this should be enough rad, and yes that is my 840mm rad biggrin.gif and the 420 Monsta



so first pic D5 on number 5 3600rpm, cant remember how to work out the lpm rolleyes.gif



the DC-LT set up im using



the first pic is with the first pump running 1600prm, not bad for a small pump.
the second pic is with both pumps running full speed, 2750rpm, very good effort indeed.



noise wise, well its alittle bit more noticable then the D5, but a lot of it comes through the res. the pump on its side, does have a dislike of running by its self, i would advise againt using it in on its side, due to its suction performance been a little low (however this could have been due to my set up)
i will have a better idea on its overall perforance once its all sat in my build.


well i hope that gives you an idea on these pumps,overall, if you can get a D5 in, use it.
If you want to have something that looks the part and can keep the flow going the the DC-LT is a good option, i would recommend using 2 (TWO) in your loop, it gives you that little bit more, but they are that small you could hide them anywhere.
