Default Anybody tried Danger Den pumps?

I wonder if anybody used DD non-Laing type of pumps? Are they worth looking at?

Specifically this one:

Yup i have one Daz, they are great little pumps that pack a bit of a punch.

I would rate them just below a 350.

They are a good cheap alternative for a budget WC loop.

Ncix has them btw:

@Apollo: Daz is linking to the little brother, the CPX-1 (aka D-Tek DB-1), whereas you linked to it's bigger brother, the CPX-Pro. The CPX-1 is fine for single blocks, but it starts to fade once you start pushing through multiple blocks. Great for chipset cooling though, and because it only pull 6W, running it off a fanheader is a non-issue. The CPX-Pro is actually stronger than a MCP350 (even topped), although it's not quite up to the standards of a MCP655 or topped MCP355.

Some people (myself included) have reported the CPX-1 making some motor noise for the first few days, even after bleeding is done, but once it's gone, it's gone for good.

I run a CPX-Pro, see my sig. Great little pump, and doesn't look like it was pulled from the bottom of an aquarium (I'm looking at you, Mr. 355 and Mr. 655).

Interesting. Thank you guys. I'm looking for alternative for overpriced Laing pumps and it seems those are possible replacement.

I've been running one of the pros as well. Seems like a great little pump, flowrate is certainly up there. I did have issues with getting it primed (both times I started a new loop with it, it took a lot of work to get it to stop surging) but once it was primed it's as quiet as any other pump I've used, seems to work well, and as a bonus came with both 1/2" and 3/8" chrome barbs.

Honestly, they're grossly underrated by a lot of people. They're cheaper than the Laings, more compact, just as quiet, and come already threaded with G1/4 barbs, and are more than capable for all but the hottest of systems.

They just haven't really caught on with the watercooling community as well as they should have, unfortunately. Whenever someone puts out a "what stuff should I buy?" thread, they're always bombarded with DDC-3.x and D5 recommendations, so it's kind of become ingrained in watercooling community by this point. Their in-stock situation at many watercooling stores is often poor too, I've noticed.
