Pump Question
 
Ok so here is my question. I just got my new P182 case and have discovered that i don't have a lot of extra room for pumps :( so my question is the MCP655 going to be strong enough for the following. (these parts listed below are my future end of the build)

AMD Phenom
4x 3850
1x 120.1 Secondary Rad
1x 120.3 Primary rad
1/2 ID Tubing.

All setup in a t-line.

Yes, it is strong enough. But using it in a P182 becomes a tight fit. Dual-loop using 2 MCP355s?

actually i found a space that might fit 2 655's :D

I'm assuming you have these pumps already? Because I'd say your better off with a couple of Laing DDC 3.2 or Swiftech 355 with a Petra top to keep the space and have a small foot print.

Also consider going with 7/16" tub instead of 1/2" for easier routing in that case.

May we have a sketch? I've used 3 times the P180/P182 with the MCP655 an found 1 usable location, while still having enough space for 3 HDDs.

the problem there is

1. i already have 10feet of 1/2 ID tubing
2. i have heard that the 355/350 run very hot
3. i can't use the top thing as i am limited in heig distances.

however if the heat issue is moot and placing a 120mm fan infront would alleviate this issue on 2 pumps then i would then have a 655 for sale :biggrin:

you can fit 3HDs and a 655- just pull one of the HD cages and put your HDs in the other one- I pulled out the top cage and stuck the pump in there

problem with that is there is not enough space on the top drive cage area for the mcp655 as it sits too high. however if you use the bottom tray area and remove the ventfan in the middle 2 mcp655 would fit there i imagine and the cable holes are perfect for allowing piping through. the only reason i didn't elect to use the mcp350/355 is that i have read that they get very hot. and that would be worrisome for me.

I had mine in the top but it was tilted- you can mount it on the interior wall too

That's one of the builts I did with a P180 and the 655. The pump is located where you're talking about, but I don't think there's space for 2 pumps. Also the openings don't quite match the vertical tubing. As Babr stated, there would be space where the upper HDD rack would be, but the 655 would sit very high in the loop.
