Swiftech MCP655

this is pretty much what everyone recommends, not really a favorite but it dwarfs everything else that isn't stupid expensive or overbuilt for exotic setups.

 

the only other option is pretty much a MCP35x for the more compact form and better head pressure.

but won't a D5 be more powerfull and have longer life span?

not really.

 

D5 has higher flow rate, the 35x has more head pressure, 35x would be the stronger pump between the two. 35x would fair better than a D5 in a more restrictive loop or a loop that pushes a large amount of vertical volume.

the life span should be similar, if that's a problem you can attach a heatsink to a 35x.

 

fluid dynamics isn't really black/white simple, the correct choice will vary on the loop, but it's usually a D5.

both are variable speed as well.

 

can you give me a link to a heatsink from amazon.uk thanks

it's this

Amazon.uk looks to have it for 32 pounds.. might be cheaper to buy from the US or somewhere else that you have access to.

One of the best if not the best flow rate is the koolance PMP500, it's not very well known of but I've been using it for a few years now in 3 different builds and it is awesome. Smaller than the D5, plus comes with a high pressure top, and a sexy  looking heatsink built in.

It's also amazingly loud :P

I got 2 mcp50x pumps vs 2 mcp35x pumps vs D5 review in the making for those interested.

I would like a review of those :-)

To be honest I don't hear mine at all, I run it at %v so that probably helps a lot.
