If you do go with Waffle's suggestion make sure you cut it into thirds and remove the middle section.


Yeah, cut it into three equal pieces, then throw away the middle bit to allow for ventilation with the DDC series, like my 355:

shoggy thing looks great, but it's too thick (tall) and would lift the pump too high. maybe if I stacked a couple of those foam pads it might work, but where can I just buy those things?
post #13 of 24
The foam can be depressed quite easily, my tubing depressed it a few CM, really all you need to do it increase the pipe length on the inlet of the pump, assuming it's pushing on the top as mine is.

That, or you could just cut the sponge in half, or to a size to suit your needs.

I'm using a mousepad/styrofoam sandwich at the moment for my 355. One thing I've noticed is that my pump emits a whining noise from the center of the bottom, so I didn't cut a ventilation hole. I'm not too worried about it overheating, really.
post #15 of 24
You only really have to worry if you have a high flow top with a low restriction loop. That can cause the pump to work very hard, even too hard, and if it has no ventilation, it'll overheat.

It's more of a precaution, but it's good to be safe.

Check, and check. But my pump has never felt unusually hot when I've inspected it during operation. You're probably right, though, so +rep.

I see. the top I have on it is an EK-DDC X-TOP Rev.2, and according to my fan controller when I hook it up it says it's running at between 4500 and 4600 RPM, seems to go up and down between those speeds

pump seems to be at 5500rpm now, it keeps going between 5000-5500, is this normal? what causes it to go up and down like this? should I be worried that it's not a constant speed?
post #19 of 24
The pump is getting faster now? Do you actually see a swirling vortex in the RES? If so, the swirl is increasing the flow into the pump and possibly making the impeller spin all the faster. To reduce the noise, add in a plastic screen mesh to the bottom of the RES over the pump intake. This should reduce or eliminate the swirling vortex and kitchen blender sounds.

Having the pump spin faster may reduce the life span of the pump unless you have some type of lubricant in the coolant mixture other than just water. PG thus far works best.
