Water cooling advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So right now i have a MCP655-B pump and i really would like to replace it with something smaller than it that is just as powerful or better. I have a XSPC RX360 to cool my cpu and gpu. I will eventually add another rad to just cool my gpu. Again, i would was wondering if anyone had any preference towards a pump that is small but powerful enough for my loop or should i go with a dual loop?

The 655 is plenty to be able to handle all those parts in one big loop if you want. Otherwise look at a 35x/350/355. It's smaller, but not by much when you add a top.

I agree with the above but here's one more thing to consider, a Koolance 452x2 dual 51/4" bay res that will allow one or two loops and one or two Laing D5/Swiftech 655/Koolance PMP-450.

By lifting the 655b off the floor of your case and providing the top & res, perhaps that makes a smaller footprint?

The options are many. You could use your 655b until you thought you needed more. You could then decide on another 655b or 655 vario. The b is locked on speed 4 while the vario goes to 5. Koolance also has a 'strong' version that needs > 12 v (and Koolance's coverter) to really shine.

If you went that direction, your 655b would still be in service no matter what you did with your loop. And it fits with the above recommendations.
