EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce industry-first metallic heatsink housing upgrade kit for world-renown Xylem/Laing DDC type water pumps.

EK-DDC Heatsink Housing is an heatsink upgrade kit for any Laing DDC type water pump which replaces the original plastic housing. This add-on vastly improves the cooling performance of the motor and electronics and thus prolongs the lifespan of the water pump.

Lol, nice marketing BS

I own a DCC and installed some of them in some systems, but as this is a water-pump it gets its cooling from the internal water flow, and the external cooling dose very little, tho the anti vibration is nice, and i would consider the solution for that reason, but not for the added cooling!

But i still would prefer one of the many dual bay pump/res solution.

yeah, I have an MCP350 pump, and it doesn't got hot really, so I don't understand the need for this.

EK is looking pretty desperate these days with all the Press Releases.
What? how did you came into this conclusion? I'm starting to notice a certain pattern in your posts... :slap:

LoL, I noticed "What?" is the most common response to Jorge's posts :laugh: you see, if a company doesn't have a product that sells itself than it's desperate and needs to do press releases and marketing :laugh:

I'm starting to think that word doesn't mean what you think it means.

Enough about you though...

This is a great product for those who have limited space with their pumps and need the passive cooling.

I have two MCP35X's and the bottoms of them get pretty damn hot. The motor itself may be cooled by the water, but the PCB and power components don't.

I'm not saying they need the heat sink, but it certainly can't hurt either.

Do keep in mind that the 35x's are more powerful and use more wattage than a 350/355.

Well done Jorge! A+ effort in looking like a fool:

AMD is definitely hitting on all cylinders with the intro of HuMA/HSA and Kaveri. Now with FirePro and consumer graphics cards being designed to use the benefits of AMD's new tech, life is good....AMD press announcement 15th November 2013
As far as AMD is concerned they have definitely "turned the corner" to a better financial future. Kaveri, HUMA and HSA have created a historic and monumental change in the PC landscape that will surprise and please all....AMD press announcement 13th November 2013

if this can reduce the noise of existing pumps as well as working as a 'spare part' then i'm all for it. seems like a good idea.

Phew, for a second there I was starting to think I was the only owner of DDCs that who undersides get really hot.
