Ok this makes sense. i was under the same impression as her then i was thinking the B was a better pump. So that makes me feel better.

Yeah... They started off with the plain model number for their best product and the "revisions" are lesser models. Sort of backwards.

I will be ordering the whole RX240 kit for my FX-8120 as it is. Seems the simpler way to go. May wind up selling my "extra" used (about 2 months) Raystorm later on in the sell forum.

Will use my Cougars on the rad since they are rated at 800-1500 rpms. Seems like 1000-1200 is the sweet spot for fans on the RX240. The kit also has the fittings in there so no more guesswork. Will be using XSPC's black tubing.

I am going to replace my fans with the new SP120 High Performance fans they are rated at 3.1mm/H20. They also have a Quiet Edition if you are looking for silence. They are about 14.99 each but you can buy a twin pack for about $27, and if you have Amazon Prime account you get free 2day shipping on them! I currently have 1 on my thermaltake but I'm going to re-purpose it along with another i just bought. I want to do a push/pull config on the ex240 but im going to wait and make sure i have enough room for it inside the case. I don't like external rads.

OK SO NOW WHAT....

I get an email from Performance-PCs saying:

Update: We're currently out of stock on the Swiftech-branded D5 pumps for these XSPC kits due to manufacturer shortages/delays. If you'd be okay with it, we can upgrade you to the Koolance-branded equivalent, PMP-450, no difference in cost for you. Thank you and we apologize for the delay and issue. -Jeremy

What does anyone think... Should i just say ok or wait till the SWIFTECH MCP655 is available.

They seem liek they are the same pump and from what read everyone says that too.. But when i read the specs the flow rates are way different... Koolance is only about 1000/lph vs Swiftech is 1500/lph

How are you going to mount the rad? If its on top, I wouldn't use Cougars. All I keep hearing about them is that they make a really annoying noise when mounted horizontally.

Honestly I would ask if they have the official XSPC branded units. XSPC just released their official D5/Raystorm/EX kits, but everyone is still selling their pieced together kits for some reason.

I asked them about the XSPC pumps...

As far as I know we will not be carrying the XSPC-branded pumps as the cost per unit is higher than cost for the other branded D5's by a large margin.

So the original question still remains. Should i take the Koolance pump or wait for swiftech

Actually I am planning on a top build and you are right about the noise. Of the 4 Cougars I have on hand, only one of them is making that annoying sound. I plan on going only PUSH for now. Otherwise I will use the XSPC 1650rpm fans for the time being or my YL HS's.

The XSPC fans are actually pretty good. I replaced them in push with GT AP-15's and there wasn't much of a difference at all. Barely noticed a noise difference. Not sure on the temperature difference... My temps have actually been higher, but my ambient has gone up over the past week as well with summer rolling in.
