    Thats a DDC pump or some would ref the swiftech models MCP350, 355 or 35x, each has diff head pressure. But any DDC pump top will work and EK, Koolance and Swiftech all have accessories for mounting solutions for this pump.

    You can mount this pump in either orientation as long don't mount it up side down, and don't use adhesive pad. Because the circuit board is at the bottom, the adhesive pad will act as insulator, you will have it burns out no time.

    You need some sort of mounting bracket, check out PPC if they sell the bracket or not.

    No mounting screw-hole then mod it. Go to HomeDepot, Lowes...etc, get 2 small angle bracket then silicone it to the pump body on the opposite side, and use these bracket as mounting point.

    Thanks for the input, I read in a diffferent place to use adhesive tape as an option. No mention at all was made about potential overheating from the use of it. Exactly the type of advice I was looking for. I always try to research as much as I can and then ask more questions before I make a decision. The place I read about using the adhesive tape also suggested it because it would help with vibration noises and that it would act as a padding of sorts for the vibration noises.

    Solid thumbs up for your advice

    Thanks, What are you using to keep it a paper thickness off of the case? Is it just from the hose length? What holds it in place?

    That is a good idea, That should help with vibration noise as well, as long as it adhered to a side rather than the bottom as pointed out above. This may be one of my choices. Thanks very much!

    swiftech sells a mounting heatsink to help with over heating issues the DDC pump is known for.




    It's a faily cheap option, I think about $20 bucks shipped.
    This will also give you screws that you can mount to the case at the bottom.

    Bitspower also sells a bracket that can mount the ddc pump to a 120mm fan. Most modern cases will have a fan at the bottom.


    I am using one of these in my DDC pump in my AMD build..
