Post Koolance RP-402X2 + Swiftech MCP35X
I bought a new reservoir...

And a new pump...

Which has PWM control...

...and should hopefully result in a silent system :)

i bought some soundpads from newegg a few years ago and was able to muffle the noisy MCP650 down tramendously, you might wanna look into that.

it works if you place it at the right place.

i wrapped up the entire pump + strategically place the pads inside the casing.

I have a sheet of noise dampening foam actually which I plan to use as well with these parts.

Though I think being able to let the motherboard control the pump on the fly will help the most. That way when I'm just idling, my PC should be pretty close to silent.

Mainly noise, and well I'm at that point where I need to clean my whole loop so why not buy new stuff at the same time!

Sounds like a darn good idea to me JD!! :)

Do you have to change it or clean it out often??

Well when I put in my GTX580, I half-assed it. Just drained whatever came out as I disconnected my HD5870 and then topped it back up.

I figure I 'ought to do it properly sooner than later.

Typically speaking though, I buy something new every 6 months, so that's usually when I clean it. I know some people say you can run loops for a year (or more) without cleaning it, but frankly I never have the same hardware for THAT long ;) However the loop I did in my dad's Phenom II X6 system will likely run for quite a while without maintenance (hopefully).

I know what you say mate. Now I just want to turn something on and for it to work rather than having to keep messing about with it so I'm just happy that things work!!

Been trying to sort a few things out for my build but not even Comixion has commented on it so I've just not bothered updating it :lol: Gotta tube all that up this evening and get things ready for my new hardware to go in... Whenever it turns up :(

Hahaha, yeah me too. I definitely prefer when things "just work" rather than having to mess around with it for hours to get it working at which point you forgot what you wanted to originally do...

I dont mind the tweaking of things but when things just constantly fall over and mess up, it just drives me mad and I just cant be bothered with it now! Although I must say the i7 doesnt seem to give me too many issues, which is a nice start :) I just hope to push it that bit further as temps and what I can remember last time was pretty darn good :) I just hope I can get 4.4Ghz or better...
