Mcp655 d5

post #1 of 10

Hi forum,

I just had quick question regarding the MCP655 D5 pump.

Many of you are probably familiar with this pump and hopefully I will get a quick answer.

It's obviously possible to fasten the pump using the screwholes on the plate it's mounted on, but that's not really ideal for me.
I've seen other builds where they have placed the pump in a 5,25'' inch bay for example. And I really doubt they managed to drill holes inside it.
So what other ways is there to fasten the pump?

the reservoir one is the XSPC reservoir IIRC I have mine under my res.. drilled some holes for it, just do the same (and put something under it! that anti vibration thing)

Well, that's nice and all, but what about other ways of fastening it ?

I don't fasten it, has a sticky pad underneath it....

If it is used up, still,no need for pad. Put a piece of rubber or something soft under it and your good to go.

It's like a 1/4" thick double side sticky pad. Although, from when I used it. It didn't stick that great. I wouldn't use it to do any crazy stuff (mounting the pump on the side of the case, upside down, etc.) as I think the sticky stuff isn't strong enough.

To the OP..
That whole black plastic piece you see on the pump is held on by 4 screws.. You take the 4 screws out and then you grab the pump and outlet nozzle and you can twist that black piece right off... The black piece is just your inlet / outlet holes with a mounting plate on bottom if you want to use the pump as a stand-alone pump.



Then you just have the pump itself..

You can then put the pump in an XSPC Dual-bay 5.25" res. There's a square plastic mounting bracket and an o-ring that comes with the dual-bay res.. You seat the pump on the bracket and you put the o-ring on the other side of the bracket between the pump and the res (not between the bracket and the pump!!).. Then you use the screws included in the XSPC Dual-bay 5.25" res to screw the mounting plate into the res.. The mounting bracket holds the pump to the res by a raised ridge that's on the side of the pump. The res has inlet and outlet ports that are already lined up once you get the pump screwed in with the mounting bracket provided with the res..

Remember to set your pump speed setting before mounting it into the res as it's very difficult to change afterwards because of the layout/design of the res..


Any more questions?

I also have mine on a gel pad screwed to the base of my haf932.

But are you asking about bay reservoir options for your Laing D5/Swiftech 655?

The XSPC is the most reasonably priced while the Danger Den Monsoon and Koolance, - the Koolance can hold 2 pumps, are high-end. Good luck.
