You can run a d5 pump fine and don't need to spend the extra money on the 35x unless you want the pump control (a nice feature). A d5 pump just has less head pressure so your flow rate will drop, unlike a ddc 35x which when put in a high restriction loop (lots of components) it will be able to handle the pressure and won't lose flow rate like the d5.

I can't speak for the 1900 rpm, but I do have the 1200rpm version in the front of my case. They push a lot of air for the rpm IMO, but they are louder than my antec tricools even when they are set to a higher rpm. I got mine for around $5 each, so I won't complain, but unless you get a great deal or don't care about noise I would look elsewhere. In reality there isn't going to be a quiet 1900rpm fan though.

The scythes are loud and the relatively high frequency makes them seem even worse. My top choices for good noise/volume are gentle typhoons or, if you can stand the colours, noctuas.

For pumps, the 655 and 35X have very similar max/min performance, but the 35X has a much better curve meaning that in the majority of situations it will perform better. However, flowrate vs temperature is not at all a linear function and going from say 10l/m to 20l/m will actually result in a very very small decrease in temps. The 35X has pwm control and is physically smaller, but the 655 is quieter. Both are rated for the same MTBF, but personally I have had way better luck with 655s.

There are probably hundreds of 350/5/X vs 655 threads on the net but swiftech now provides comparison charts of their own to end the debate.

Well technically there is and its the scythe gt 1850 rpm (only a 50 rpm diff)
