Looking for new parts

Hi, here a happy water loop user. I have been running for years my d5 pump with one ek EX360 in push-pull configuration. No issues so far. Waterblock have been modified by me to adapt new sockets (and, Intel).

I am planning to run 2 motherboards in my coreX9. For now only one will be water-cooled. It will have a zen2 plus my new vega64.

I was thinking about a Mora type external rad. To be honest I have been not looking at the water-cooling market for years. So I wanted to ask what options do I have for a similar rad in the market now.

Also, those d5 pumps from barrow or bykski how are they performing? Quality?

Rgds.

Hi there

I would too suggest get MO-ra3 360mm or 420mm radiators for sure, its well worth it getting this radiator

Regarding the D5 pumps from Barrow or Bykski,not tried their own D5 pumps only DDC pumps which are for price great pumps abd I can only highly recommend them

Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura

I am using a MO-RA 420 Pro Stainless Steel Edition (for looks) for my signature rig and this thing has been amazing! I run 9X Corsair ML 140 Pro fans on it at 450rpm and it can cool both my 7940X + 1080Ti (both overclocked0 without breaking a sweat.

Bear in mind that an external radiator will always be more efficient than even an equal part placed in a case. And given that there is no case or a way to put a rad with the surface area of the MO-RA at an optimal position with unrestricted airflow INSIDE a case you will be hard pressed to achieve a better balance of performance/noise with anything else. If you do not mind having an external rad then go for it 100%. For me there is no going back and I am even thinking of going with a second MO-RA (passive) and maybe find fans that work even lower to avoid even having dust build up (not bad for 9 months in mine).

I am also recommending the Stainless steel version + rombus grills - they are so well made finish wise and they look very premium.

A tip : I did not want to use quick disconnect since I find them unreliable and flow restricting so I installed ball valves at the outlet of my MO-RA. This way you can easily shut-them off, unplug the tubes (keep them up - no leaking) and do some maintenance. You can install ball valves at both ends if you want but I did not find that necessary.

I keep my MO-RA a bit higher than my PC (behind its back) on a shelf on the wall. E.g. My tower is on my left hand side adjacent to the wall and the MO-RA behind it on the shelf and a bit above. I hear no fans this way and the MO-RA is close to the coldest wall in the room further increasing its efficiency.

I just need to finish a cover I am designing for the cables coming out to make them look pretty but have not made up my mind yet, regarding its final look or material (plexi + stainless steel most probably).



*EDIT*

The D5 pumps from Barrows and....are not real D5 pumps from Laing as far as I know so while functional I do not know how they perform sine I do not own any neither do I intend to get one. I prefer to stick to the true an tried solutions out there. I.e. get a D5 pump from anyone else.
