If i'm not wrong the mcp350 is a ddc 3.1 and the mcp355 is a ddc 3.2, and i know that the 3.25 is said to be a bit quieter (but not how much) and i speak only on my experience with the 3.25.
Never owning a d5 i can't state a comparison and (for now) i can't find any sound review of the 3.25.


edit: the only document i found is this one https://hw-lab.com/summary-of-laing-ddc-pumps.html/3 and it confuse me comparing it to your graph because in it the mcp35x go up to ~47db while in the one i found they say max 32 db ??
edit2: i found why the difference ,in the graph it's the mcp35X (didn't know it exist my bad) and it is said to be louder than all the others ddc, but by this much ??

Just hopping in here really quick.

I have been using DDC pumps for probably over 15 years now in water cooling builds. Never once, and I mean NEVER have I ever needed a heat sink on the pump. 2 of the original three pumps I have are still in operation and have been in many builds. Only one pump has failed and it was no fault of its own, it was my fault in a physical damage situation. The idea of those pumps requiring a heat sink is ludicrous. The pumps do run a bit hotter than some other pumps, but its by design and does not effect the performance.

With that said, there are heat sinks out there for these pumps, and honestly its about style. Not functionality. If anyone ever tells you that your DDC pump requires a heatsink, roll your eyes and walk away.

Its true they don't need heatsinks but in a very low restriction loop running full tilt they can put out a fair amount of heat so some airflow at minimum is recommended. Them needing sinks notion came about way back when because people were putting pads under them for sound dampening which either melted the pad or killed the pump.

I have had a DDC mp355 running since 2010, its seen 1 loop disintegrate due to galvanic corrosion (cause of stupid), cleaned it and put it back into current loop but lately it started to drop CPU signal so I am replacing it shortly already have a D5 ready to go in but finding the time is complete different story. At first I thought it was the PSU tripping out but finally had 1 instance after the reboot halted at the post screen with missing cpu fan speed, went into bios magically fixing itself. So figured it was only a matter of time. On top of that the flow in the res looks low.
