Is this a "real" D5 pump
 
Hello, I'm new to the water cooling community and I'm planning my first build. Recently when browsing for fittings on AliExpress, I found this pump:

The price is really good and the reviews are very positive. I wrote in a discord community and I was told it's probably not a "real" D5. So what do you think?

Im newbie in this department....but it goes:

Don`t trust it. Maybe Barrows version is better.......apart this, only trust sellers.

I highly doubt it, it's probably another "D5 compatible" pump. On real D5s the area of the pump around the rotor is silver metal as well, not all black.

EDIT: My bad, apparently real D5's are rated around 1500LPH, not less than 1000LPH.

isn't d5 rated at a higher flow?

Kimura 05-07-2019 01:04 AM

Okay guys, thanks. But what kind of pump is it? DDC or some other type? I also thought that the flow rate should be higher, but I'm a newbie as well.

I was really thinking to get two of them, because I have an itch to water cool my old rig (5960x and 290x CF) but I don't want to spend a ton of cash cooling old-ish components.

Edit: reason - typo

Would you skimp on your PSU when building your rig? Would you want to buy the dirt cheapest PSU you can find and worry about the day it blows up and takes all your components with it? No? Then why cheap out on your pump. Out of your entire loop I would say the pump is the most important of the lot. It has to be reliable because if the pump goes the rest of the loop cant do its job. Don't cheap out on the pump. Simple as that.

I'm new to water cooling and am going with the XSPC D5 Photon Res/Pump combo as it's highly recommended.

I would never try and cheap out on any parts tbh.

If you are looking for a bare pump the swiftechs are already pretty reasonable.

As for what this is just looks like a Chinese d5 clone. Could be decent one that a worker made after their shift was over, could be a pump that didn't meet laing's standard, or it could be complete garbage in a d5 shell. It is a dice roll.

Mordorr 05-07-2019 04:01 AM

Yep...on my reserches i ear good things about those "old" swiftechs versions...

Only Swiftech MCP655 wSpeed Controller non PWM or Laing D5 from Dazmode site, but not Strong version, normal.
