Swiftech is one of the most famous brands in the market of PC DIY watercooling, with well over a decade of experience and products that have gained the reputation of the market. Among these is their take on the excellent Laing D5 pump called the MCP655, which they have designed their own top and installation for in an attempt to separate it from other Laing D5 offerings from other companies. Thanks to Swiftech for providing a review sample for us to take a look at ourselves.
The MCP655, as it comes from Laing, is the bare bones D5 pump Swiftech also sells as an OEM device. If you fancied a top from someone else, this is the SKU to go for. Most first-timers would want to get a pump and top combo unit, however, and that is where the acrylic or acetal top versions come in. The MCP655 with a PWM motor is rapidly gaining popularity due to motherboard makers recognizing and supporting PWM fans and pumps alike, and Swiftech sent us the MCP655-PWM-Acrylic SKU accordingly.
