    must take into consideration all of the variable's that affect temp (# of block's, size of RAD, amount of tubing, pressure drop, fan's, etc...)

    you should be fine with your setup there DaMulta

    Well here I come with a question. I have recently changed from using PC ICE to distilled water with an additive. My pump has since went from a low hum to a loud grind. I have tried, all for not, to get this thing quieted down.

    So on to the question:

    I need a new 110V pump. I'm currently using a Hydor Seltz and wouldn't mind using it again, but I assume there is better these days in the pump world. Please shoot out recommendations or tips/experiences!

    I use the 110V pump as it was in a trade, but my loop is set up outside the case. Personally I dont care which. Its about performance and being quiet!

    Also I pump about 15" straigt up, then its all downhill from there!

    Well I can get the direct replacement for this Hydor at crazyPC's for $50 + Shipping. Im not against paying more if the performance/sound level is worth the extra money!

    well idk about the Hydor SELTZ pumps but the Swiftech MCP655 gots more Maximum head
    10 ft and 50 PSI vs the 6 ft and 32.5 PSI from the Hydor L30

    unless you want a Hydor SELTZ L 45 II Water Pump (950 GPH)

    are you sure about 50psi? (If its 50psi I think its at 90V with a good tailwind) The 2 I got from DD were at best just ok, water barely came out so Ive been Liang DDC ever since

    Seen these?

    there is an L40 in the middle and I see a L45 with 925 GPH. So in your opinion those are best bang for the buck?

    Edit: reading reviews and realizing they are right on 9 out of 10 things, I may as well try the Swiftech.

    Any other ideas b4 I take the plunge?

    If money is not a problem i'll go with a Laing D5 instead of the Hydor L40, even i'm pretty satisfied after 5 months of my Hydor L20 ... the Laing seems more reliable besides the perfect sealed fittings not as the Hydor that pumps a lil bit of air everytime you disconnect it.

    Everything I read says the Swifties are whisper quite with minimal vibration. Seems to be two things I couldnt say for my Hydor.

    Well Im off in search of the cheapest reputable 665.

    Thanks for all the help! (thanks are comming now)

    @ MK I actuall saw a 1200GPH pump in my local pet smart....must of been cast Iron,,,it weighed a ton. But alas they wanted over $200 for it!

    Yeah, i said Laing D5 cause you can purchase the same pump on different brands, such as Swiftech or DangerDen, even the original one, Laing.

    Really the Hydor pumps are good, they're quiet (at least mine) and high reliable for the price they cost ... but normally they're not reliable and good such as a D5 (in the long time i mean) ... but of course if your purpose is price/performance some Hydor or Eheim will do the trick pretty well.

    Its quite ok, I just got caught asking a silly question b4 I googled it for myself.

    Now whats the deal with the -b and the pumps with or without the switch(665's)? They all show the same specs, so am I to assume theyall do the same thing, just some have options?

    Also theres the Swiftech MCP655-B 12v DC Pump w/Tach Sensor it doesnt have the 1-5 nob it says on DD there locked at 5 but I saw on XS it was like 4 on the pump above

    edit found it for less thats where I got it from :D

    The B is a limited version of the original Swiftech MCP-655, runs pretty well but it's oriented to give you just a position (in speed, flow, head) while the non-B version has a tachmeter to regulate the speed for yourself depending on the elements you're gonna cool. As it's limited, the B version won't offer you the performance of the original MCP-655 on level's 4-5 (average)

    As fitseries3 told me once, NEVER GO WITH THE B! i'd trust him :laugh:

    edit: i just saw DOM's post, sorry dude :)

    thats listed as MAX pressure, the real pressure is a LOT lower. Its kind of like PS companies and cheap car stereo amplifiers that list inflated specs.

    I would recommend the Liang DDC pump. Add the petras top and its even better
