I'm currently having a 3D Galaxy WC kit I by Gigabyte. Anyway, the water tank started to break a parts and the pump is made a lot of loud noises, also it seems to be doesn't pump enough to make the water flow smooth. I took it a part and tried to open the pump to see what's happened, but I couldn't open the whole thing. Anway, I bought the Eheim 1250 from the WC guide. I tried to buy a relay kit from cooltechnica, but they don't have it right now. So should I return the Eheim and get DD 12vdc pump or just run Eheim with 120v and wait until the relay kit is available?

</div> Yeah I've heard that from several people that the res falls apart on them..I wouldn't run it with-out a relay myself, I'm to absentminded, I'd fry my comp for sure....If you think you can remember to turn it on before your comp everytime I quess you'd be all right.. <br />
<br />
If you wont lose a lot of $$$ trading your pump back in the DD Laing D-5's are great pumps..It's your call....

The Eheim is cost more than the D5. I always have my computer running, I never shut it down, so should I keep the Eiheim?<br />
Which one should last longer??? I won't mind to pay extra $18 for the relay kit when it's available. What's better in the long run?

There's no need for the relay, just turn your computer off and let the pump run. <br />
<br />
I have my pumps and WC fan PSU on a seperate power strip, I just let them run 24/7, that way I can't forget. Then again, my computer is on pretty much 24/7......

Wait...the Eheim cost you more than the D5? That's not right. The D5 is a better Pump. If you need 3/8 barbs the Swiftech MCP-655 is also better than the Eheim.

Can you explain why the d5 is better than the ddc12? Compare to the flow rate, the ddc12 seems to be better.

Go for the D5. IRA-K is right about the 1/2".

For general use just go with the D-5...The 18W DDC needs an aftermarket top to flow well.......Here's a link.. <a href="http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=117215" target="_blank">DDC Top & Pump Performance Comparison (Petra's, Radiical, Alphacool, etc.) - XtremeSystems Forums</a> They out flow a D-5 in a actuall loop..But the D-5 is a great pump..I wouldn't recommend the DDC for new folk...
