    I'd stay away from x-flow if you can help it. Dual pass rads work much better.

    Just a quick question,I have been looking at the specs of the Swiftech MCP355 and the 655 and even though the 355 has less discharge/pressure than the 655...454LPH/22psi versus 1200LPH/50psi....it is rated at more maximum head 15ft versus 10ft.:confused:

    I have both pumps,the 655 in my system atm,which is just cooling the CPU and the 355 for my new system which will be cooling the CPU,NB/SB and VRegs..would it be worth swapping the pumps or just stick with what I have??

    Thanks guy's,but I already have one :toast:

    So I think I will just stick with the 355(well it's a DDC 3.2...but their the same),it will save me emptying my other loop.I only filled it a couple of months ago so cant be arsed really.

    Well fellas, you all tipped me in the right direction.

    Got my new swifty 665 in today, hooked it up, turned it on, and I was a bit scared at first.

    I bled most of the air prior to boot, and I had no jumper for my PSU, so I took a chance and booted it. I almost pooped. I thought the pump didnt work at frist. I looked a bit closer and say just the tiniest of air bubbles pass by(releaved a bit).

    This is the quietest pump I have ever heard, and I've been keeping fish for over 15 years(going through a lot of pumps). No one tick, hum, or grumble from this thing....just smooth and quiet.

    Thanks a ton guys in the help of leaving the 110V pumps and going this route!

    That 1300 only pumps about 60GPH more with 4 feet less head , and uses more power(heat added to loop). Also even when my 110V pump was quiet running the PC ICE coolant, the vibration on my desk was still there, so take that into account also!

    Just some food for thought!:toast:

    congratulations. once you go water you never go back. actually I think it's "Liquid Cooling" now last year I read an article at Toms they used Beer as a coolant and it worked well only problem was they couldn't test long term repercussions, bleeding took long too.

    you need atleast 10ft of head that is the most important aspect when buying a pump.
