The D5 pump also known as the MCP655 is one of the best pumps around.... in performance! Now you can make it the best of both

worlds. Give your pump a new look and change the main body covering along with a mount ring and support bracket. This high polished finish is

sure to spruce up the pumps looks! None of the pumps functions are covered or...

I agree, but my current MCP 655b has the mod kit, so I just want them to match.

Default Re: Well, it is almost done...

I'm reaching out to the community for help with a question. I have my eyes set on purchasing an EK 5.25" D5 Dual Loop Top, but I'm wondering if it's compatible with the Ek DDC X-Res Top 140. It says compatible with EK MultiOption res tubes, but I also need an EK link which frozencpu doesnt carry. I'd like my order to stay with Frozencpu so that I'm not paying extra for shipping multiple packages from different companies. Thanks in advance for any and all help getting this straightened out.

D5 Dual Loop Top
EK 5.25" Mountable D5 Dual Loop Top - Black Acetal - Laing D5 / Swiftech MCP650/655 (EK-D5 Dual TOP 2-Loop G1/4 - Black Acetal) - FrozenCPU.com

Well I'm not up on the new watercooling products, but I am wondering about the title. This was "Well, it is almost done..." on 4/4/2010 and it's been almost 6 months. HaHaHa, your "almost" sounds a lot like my "maybe". I maybe upgrading, I maybe rebuilding, I maybe working on this forever

Isnt that the truth Slay. I think the term, "It's almost done" encompasses the modder and enthusiast ideals almost congruently. It's never powerful enough, it's never unique enough...etc. It's always a work in progress when ambition is involved....

I find the lack of money to be great at breaking that cycle.
