The MCP655 pump has a lot of good reviews although it's expensive (80-90€).
Yate Loons are indeed extremely cheap (5€ unit) but everybody knows you get what you pay for so I wouldn't be surprised if they were far from being the best for rad cooling... I'll have to get more opinions on that.
@12cores: Nothing personnal and don't want to sound like a ***** and break it to you but I really hate your rig... That's because of a lot of things:
-5770 are far from being the best choice and I'm more of an nvidia guy anyway.
-I find the white versions of the phantom way more neat and clean. So that's personnal too...
-Why the hell did you need a tiny fan between the Water Cooled GPUs and on the RAM (cooling ram is totally useless and looks lame).
-I get the feeling everything in your case is kind of invisible (black, case, black hoses, black everything).
Don't take it the wrong way... it's my personnal opinion and I don't have better to brag about right now so yeah... If you liek it than good for you, I simply don't and felt like I had to tell you
EDIT: I've heard that by emailing companies you could get "sponsored" meaning they'd send you free parts. Any idea how that works and what I'd have to do to get my rig sponsored ?
655 isn't expensive at all. Basically all pumps are in the same general price range.
Although Yate Loons are cheap there is nothing performance wise that they lack. I have been using 10 of them for months with no issues. I only got them because they were recommended here in the water cooling forum.
When giving an opinion about someones rig that they have worked on it's more than enough to simply say "It's not for me".
We all get what we can at the time. There is no need to call anyone out about there choice of components.
Before calling someone out about doing something with water cooling you should learn something about it yourself. He has universal blocks on his gpus. That means the only thing under water is the chip itself. The fan is to cool the rest of the card.
If you knew anything about overclocking ram then you would know that it gets really hot. Fan is actually a good idea considering there is very little air actually flowing through it in his case.
If I were a company looking to sponsor someone I wouldn't be giving anything to someone who has never done any of the actual work themselves. Generally you will need a portfolio with pictures of your past builds as well a resume detailing your skills and experience. Companies that give out sponsorship are doing it for advertising not for charity.
