Sweet, thanks for the help. I was looking at this pump but I really didn't want to spend the money on the mod top to make it work for compression fittings

Get the MCP655 Vario, not the MCP655B. The MCP655-B is literally just the vario permanently fixed to setting 4, meaning it can't even achieve it's max setting. (Which is 5)

As to the pump itself, it's just a rebranded D5 pump.

They do have just the threaded pump top available at a very low price that will work with all D5 models. I'm using one on a D5 strong right now with no issues.

Basically I'm just wondering about anybody's experience with it and how well the threads with the seal on the compression fittings. I want to get this pump for my build but didn't want the barb fittings.
Slightly lower price for same thing here. D5 Vario is $89.95 or without speed control (i.e. MCP-655B) $79.95.

I've ordered lots of stuff from both FrozenCPU and Sidewinders and never had a problem with either place.

Yeah, I meant to post the vario but I copied the wrong tab lol

That's what I've been reading, is there really much of a difference in performance between a D5 and a 'swiftech' D5?

I've been looking at a few of them, but they're mostly between $40-$60 (At least on Frozencpu maybe cheaper somewhere else) and this would really kill two birds with one stone and save me some money I can spend elsewhere on the build.

Only $6.95 here. I use PPCs more than anyone else. Only had one or two minor problems over the last 5 years.

It's just a rebranded D5, most all D5s are more or less identical. Here's a chart of the OEM parts.



it doesn't list the VPP655 pump, but I know for a fact it's just a Laining D5 with a custom speed control mounted to the PCB where the potentiometer normally is soldered too. In fact, there have been people who buy the PCB for the digital speed control from alphacool, and mod their other D5 pumps to use it. After all, it's just soldering 4 wires into place.

It is the Aquacomputer D5 USB that is a modified D5 Vario
I stand corrected

Either way, they're all just rebranded Laining D5s.
