Anyone have one or know things about it? I'm looking to quiet down my 350.
Dissapointing. Thanks for the inputOriginally Posted by lowfat

I've got a blue top, but based on lowfat's impressions it doesnt look like it will do anything for me.Originally Posted by WiSK
Hi! It is the same one as I used, but you have to look what colour impeller is in your pump. On the site he mentions which boards are compatible with which impeller types. You see, the colour of the impeller indicates the electrical properties of the induction coils used in your pump model.
I should say that @lowfat has expressed doubts about the noise levels of earlier versions of these replacement boards. But the recent circuitry improvements may help that.
Your mileage may vary...
I was hoping the PWM board would be good since I wanted to speed control my mcp350 as it is currently the loudest thing in my case. Looks like i'll have to track down an mcp35xOriginally Posted by Martinm210
Haven't tried the PWM flavor but it doesn't sound promising. I have tried both the 18w Toshiba and the 10w Sanyo based boards and would recommend the Sanyo option:
It has a nice smooth sound similar to the Laing 3 series controllers perhaps better. The Toshiba while being more powerful was more like an old DDC1 controller and a bit buzzy in comparison.
The Sanyo gets my vote.
