I'd like to stuff a watercooling system into a rather small case so I was thinking about getting the Apogee Drive.

It's a DDC, which I've heard can be reasonably quiet, except I don't think there's any way to decouple it. Does anyone here have any experience with this product?

I got this as part of the H2O 120 compact kit. I was very disappointed in the noise the pump made. Its is by var the noisiest part of my system. Its a high pitched whine sound. You can definitley tell there is a pump working. I stuck a fan controller on it and it does reduce the noise quite a bit tho i havent fully established the performance impact of this. I think at around 7v or so it might be bearable or simply belend in with any fan noise.

Its a shame because i like the concept of the all in one block pump. i think if you want silence the 12v ehiems are the way to go with the decoupling kits you get for them. At least thats the route ill probably take next.
