Maybe I indeed have a bad D5 sample, it is a early model.

DDC was quite, seemed louder then MAG.

Of course my DDC's got REAL quite one day :)

D5 is very quite at 1 or 2 setting, just don't see the point in getting this pump if you must turn it down?

I just listened too the Mp3's he has posted.

I have several of the pumps he tested, and the CSP-MAG he is testing has something wrong or it is not bleed.

All the pumps sound about right but my MAG makes 1/2 the noise of my D5.You have to place it against your ear to hear anything at all.

"Eheim HPPS with Innovatek base on cotton and it's number 1 source noise in my system" That doesn't seem right Every Eheim I have has been very quite. Think maybe you have a problem with your pump. Clean it out and see what happens. MAG is very quite, D5 is ok at lower settings 1-2. I could be wrong...

From what I read on the other forum the MAG pump can be damaged in shipping.

Not sure if DD guys have a whole box damaged or what, but both of my pumps are OK.

I see on same forum Talonz pump is working quite now as well.

Opened my up today as I am adding a GPU card and the impeller is NOT loose.

Nor is my second MAG pump (from Danger Den this time)

I can guess your pump and maybe Scop's are damaged :(

You mean the D5?
D5 is bigger, more flow and higher head.

It is also noisy and will not effect your temps in any measured way.

Don't waste your money

"Pro cooling is not big into GPU"

Well that is just stupid.... sorry but it is.

CPU and GPU are the same thing, in fact with most games nowadays your GPU is worked harder then your CPU.

From what I read on other forums, GPU is easy too overclock and performs very well with WCing.

"All of them perform best with high-pressure"

According to the developer of the G5 on proforums, the difference between the best and worse pump using a G5 will only be 1C!

You will be within 0.5C in a MAG vs D5 set up.

For that little difference I will do without the noise :D

Sounds like something is hitting the impeller.

Had my MAG 6+ months now, very quite.

I also read Dave on Proforums trying to get his hands on one, but I suspect yours is a different noise then others suggest.

Did you open it up and look if anything is in there?

DG, I do not believe you are "getting it", a pump like the C-MAG is MORE then you will ever need.

Big pumps are a waste of money and power.

NO!!!!

My friend has one, and yes it can be low noise, if you turn it WAY down.
But whats the point then?

Buy a big pump, then turn it down so you have equal or less flow then a 1048 or mag?

I understand reading on Pro Forum, c-systems has an even quiter pump coming out, if that is possible.

There is a thread by one of the engineers about a 100000 hour pump.

Thats a cool link!
So basically anything above 1.2 GPH is a waste?

A small decent pump is the way to go.

I never had a C-MarkII, I have a MAG, and an AC Ehiem pump (other system). I had a DDC, often stopped and I sent it back.

Overvolt? Well I guess but not on purpose. My mobo functions reads 12.83V, I do not have a volt meter to test for sure. Performance wise I only have a DDC to compare against, both would be running at same voltage, and the MAG gives me better results. I am using a DD TDX style block. I have mine moun...
