My System Specs


I am using the EK dual top and like it very much. I would say go for the EK. As to sound dampening, is your D5 the adjustable one? I have 3 of them and they are all very quiet on settings 1-2.5. How/where are you mounting the pump in your case? If you mount it in a 5.25 bay, use some rubber isolators, and if you are mounting it on the bottom of the case use a foam adhesive pad. I am pretty sure my D5's (switech 655 actually) all came with a 1/4 - 5-16" thick double adhesive pad.

I dunno how thick this sheet is, but you can always double up. - Buy Silverstone SF01 Sound Dampening Acoustic Foam Pads 2 Sheets 21X15IN - RL-SF01 In Canada.

...Or get another hose clamp?
