Some D5 Pumps are different than Original Laing
 
2 Attachment(s)
On this video guy nicely explain why some version of D5 mostly new PWM version example EKWB D5 G2 but I heard and about XSPC version with SATA connector etc have some small metal parts on impellers and they cause vibration on tops where previous older and more similar to original Laing D5 work normal.
Guy didn't had other solution than to drill little D5 Distro for EKWB D5 G2 with all others pump from his stock worked normal.
Probably metal parts cause to impeller need more space and more touch channel on top.
Because of that EK probably start to give Soft Rubber with D5 Revo tops and advice me to tight less D5 G2 PWM in top.

You can say what you want, only PC stores sell Laing D5 under different names for 70-90$, others still with Laing name same pumps without PWM sell for 200-250$.
If I need to buy D5 now I would find smallest seller who sell much less stuff than bigger and famous seller with oldest stock of MCP655 with speed controller.
Than I would be sure that pump don't survive changes at least 5 years.


When factories decide to change one, only single one capacitor, controller, wire to be thicker or thinner, to add or remove parts in impeller or body that was not more of Laing D5 and pump would need same time to earn glory of pump with first design.

I think he talk about these small metals inside... they are different or not exist at all on original pump.

If someone say to someone "Buy any D5 they are same original Laing D5 only PWM, only this, only that...
I will jump from his monitor and eat his fingers and he will click and kill enemies with mid leg.

The metal inserts are balance weights. AFAIK, the impellers have always had them. The EK D5 in the video may have been defective, as I had an EK D5 that came in an EK DBAY reservoir that rattled and vibrated new once it was filled. EK replaced it and it wasn’t a newer D5....this was back in 2017

I don't understand English so please which are the safe buy pumps?

I made lot of research about D5 pumps....ear some problems with EK variants...

Last week i buy a Watercool D5 Vario. Don`t trust PMW stuff.

I hope i did a good option. I saw that video and also read somewhere else about issues with propeller touching reservoirs.....very bad.

Defenily VP755 is to avoid.

Why are you showing pics of an E3 200-240V pump made for potable water applications as reference rather than a D5? Maybe you should just buy an E3, plug it into the wall, and drop your D5 conspiracy investigation that has yielded no actual facts.

it does not take much research to prove that the new EK D5 G2 PWM water pump, is not a reference pump. I noticed this when it was first released, and warned others about buying this product because the electronics have not been proven to last.


their are several PWM versions of the D5 pump that I will not buy, because the electronics have not been around long enough to prove that they will last, or the pump has already been proven to be faulty.

I did not buy PWM, because i have a "feeling" i could have problems controlling it, even with a Asus Crosshero VII that i own..but this is another story.

toolmaker03:

Watercol D5 Vario is a good option in your opinion? I only have mine at a few days, but has far i can experience, no problems so far (in such a short time).

The fact that PWM versions have added electronics is well known. All fo them, not just EK. But, were you following the D5 conspiracy through the seemingly endless threads he has posted it in, it is not PWM pumps or the electronics that are in question.
