    The only soft tubing I can recommend is Primochill Advanced LRT. Norprene is also good but is a different material entirely and has no color options. Note that the LRT tubing, while being the only one yet to not leach plasticizers, can turn yellow at loop temps higher than 35-40 C. Nothing a colored coolant can't handle though!

    Is your pump out of warranty? It is so rare To hear a failed D5 pump.

    Just get colored tubing. ;) I bought two MCP350's cheap from a guy here on TPU that are working great. I think he still has a thread.

    I really thought about that guy but can't find his thread if my life depended on it :(

    I know colored tubing lol but so many choices. I'm currently using blue PrimcoChill Advance LRT


    Also no my 655 does not have warranty

    Yeah, I'm using PC Adv. Black .:) I found his thread... He sold out :(

    Ditch one of your Rads. I'm not surprised your pump burnt out. What is the max you want to spend on a pump?

    I don't mind if I can find two pumps as I do have three reservoirs at my disposal.

    Phobya DC12's and EK DCP 2.2's are cheap and have about the same flow rate as a MCP350. Two of those should work great.

    Which is about as inexpensive as you're going to get with pumps.
