BOX for pump silence.. can i do it?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
ok in my pursuit to build an ultra quiet case... i figured... my pump, swiftech mcp655, is rated at about 33 d/b's. now can i build a little box with some sound proof material to try and kill most of the sound... or will this cause temperature problems with the pump? i basically want to almost completely sourond it.. eliminating most of the sound.

that would probably cause it to overheat. You could use something like this:

or use rubber washers to isolate your pump from the rest of your case. that should really help.

Since it's just a retagged Laing Ecocirc, same as my DD D5, it comes with a neoprene mounting pad. My WC system is fully external with the pump bolted to a ½" plexi shelf that sets just above the dedicated PSU and you can't here it over the stock PSU fan. And that's without using the pad. Once this pump bleeds the air it's amazingly quiet.
