    I'm planning a casemod with water cooling, but right now I'm stuck in what type of pump of use? I'm planning on using dual 360 rads, GFX, CPU block, reservoir and a milled midplate.

    I have 2 x Laing DDC12v 18W and a dual top, but obviously that takes a little more space than a single D5.

    Would like a few advices. Should I just stick with my two DDCs or should I buy a D5?

    I would just stick with what you've got. They'll do the job just fine. :)

    I'd stick with the two DDC's, the head pressure will be needed to overcome the restrictive nature of the planned loop - you'd certainly lose a lot of flow using a D5.

    Thanks for the answers. Seems like I'll stick with my trusty DDCs then. Does anyone of you know about modding a non-PWM pump with the soldering method into a PWM? So far I've found contradicting answers on the internet. Also; do you think it would be possible to mill a DDC bracket into the midplate? That way I could have like this Res -> Pump -> Rad -> Rad -> midplate/pump -> GFX -> CPU -> back to res

    I would assume a non PWM doesn't have the correct PCB to allow for PWM at all but I don't know for sure. What do you mean mill a DDC bracket into the midplate? A mounting bracket held in place on the midplate with a couple screws seems very doable with a dremel or drill. If you mean a water distro block, yes you can mount about any pump in a properly designed one. Think of it as a giant two piece acrylic pump top
