What DDC pump do I need to complete my build?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey all, just realized that in the flurry of purchasing and mapping out my new build, I completely forgot a pump for my loop.. 

 

I have a list of all the parts I have so far, here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1V1qrUReVyhYUizjyRA6cExK3oPkUeW7e5lEYCnTkiAg/edit#gid=0

 

Any suggestions on a pump that will fit nicely with this build? It's 99% bitspower, but not sure exactly what pump I should get, voltages, power, etc. I found this (https://www.aquatuning.us/water-cooling/pumps/laing-ddc/ddc-pumps/13400/laing-ddc-pump-12v-ddc-3.25-18w) but not sure if it's good or not 

 

I think whatever pump I do use has to be relatively small because I don't have a lot of working room with the build I'm mirroring. (images in attachments) 

 

Thank you!!

Considering you have a pump top already, just whatever DDC pump you can find at the vendors in your area is good. 

Just remember if one is cheaper but comes with its own housing, you can just remove it and use the one you already have.

Second Testbench Rig: i7-4770K @ 4.6 GHz, RX 580 (air cooled), 16GB DDR3 1866, Thermaltake Core P3 White TG, CPU Soft Watercooling

Third Server Rig: R7 1700X @ 4.0 GHz, GTX 1080 Ti, 32GB DDR4 3000, Fractal Core 500, Full Soft Watercooling
 

I don't have a problem...

Hey thanks! I think I edited my post while you were replying, would this be a good option? (https://www.aquatuning.us/water-cooling/pumps/laing-ddc/ddc-pumps/13400/laing-ddc-pump-12v-ddc-3.25-18w)

Yeah that should work fine. I have been getting mine off of aliexpress for the last year or two, but that doesn't seem out of line with the "established and trustworthy" prices. Go for it

Unless of course you want full PWM control, which tbh I do prefer for my pumps because they can get loud and I like to have fine control over their speeds

DDC pumps are mostly the same. The pump top is usually more important that the pump itself and that's already included with your res. The question is whether or not you want one with PWM or not. I've used an EK pwm one for a few years in one of my builds and had no issues. You also want to get a heatsink for it.
