Sunbeam is one of my long time favorites, having said that sometimes nice to see RPM reading too :)

My System Specs


i actually just picked up a sunbeam from daz (big shout to daz!) and am really pleased with it so far, and for the price i'm really pleased with the watts per channel (which to me matters most watts per chanel / $) at 30 watts per channel you'll have no problem putting multiple fans per channel

as for d series heat. I've had my d5 running all summer even when it was 30 degrees in my room, its never more than warm to the touch.

My System Specs


I'd like to get opinions from other owners of the noted pumps (D5 and DDC-3.25).

Again, I would like to expand this in the future to add at least a gpu (which I hope to have by the summer) and MAYBE (!!!) a mobo block (again, this comes with an upgrade, and this one depends on whether i really need it or not, but the option to have it is good none the less)

Thanks in advance guys!

I've owned both. That is, the variable Swiftech MCP-655 and the Swiftech 3.2 - I like the DDC's more. They are small and efficient. Also, they come in handy the more restrictive your loop gets. I'd say use one 350/355, and if you make those upgrades (GPU mobo etc.) throw in another :)
