DangerDen's version of the C-Systems CSP-MAG waterpump, 150gph, in a 2"x2"x2" package. With higher head pressure than an Eheim 1048 too.

Project Passiv-Agressiv, Passive radiators, custom stuff

Ok, so I finished this case finally, and I was verrrry pleased to turn it on, and only see lights, and water flowing. No noise. the fans are 120s that turn at less than 700RPM, with a 160GB FDB maxtor in a solid aluminum enclosure, with passive radiators and a passively cooled PSU. Here is an overal...

Heh, thanks I appreciate that, I take alot of pride in designing my cases, not just cutting random shit out. Overall, it cost me about $650, $150 for the odds and ends parts for the water system $100 for the case $250 for powdercoating(Well worth it IMO) and then the rest($150) was just other parts,...

I finally got the parts back though, and here are some pics over the last cou...

well, i ended up going with a D-Tek heatercore, and 2 120s, running about 400-500 rpm, and damn if they arent silent, i cant hear a thing even with the fans on the heatercore. I dont care about temps, so long as they stay within reasonable limits, below 65C under load, just as long as its quiet.

well first of all, that depends on the pump you use with the innovatek, if you get a very quiet pump such as an ehiem 1048 then that could end up being a better option, since the zalman pump, although very quiet, is mounted in the aluminum radiator, whereas with the innovatek setup you can have the ...

"Silent" Pump

Hello, Im just wondering if anyone has reccomendations, or specific bad experiences, as to a very quiet pump? Im looking for 1/2" fittings as well. AC or DC, doesnt matter, although Ive heard DC pumps are quieter, but offer less performance. Better yet, does anyone have any information on using gas-...

Ok, I have something to add about those V-series Lian-Lis, they are FULL of holes! If you want a quiet case, that should be on the bottom of your list, the first step to stopping noise, is putting as much "stuff" between the source, and you. those V-series cases do nothing but leak noise.

My only experience with HD blocks is with the Koolance one. The experience was bad, it killed my drive. Since then I've just payed a little attention to airflow in the case so there is sufficient cooling on the drives. They aren't hard to cool even with very quiet case setups if you make sure they ...
