    Need help with a $600 build for a friend.

    I checked some reviews and it seems the i3 2100 is the best option in this case. If anyone can suggest a better PSU, Memory, Monitor, or HDD for the price that would be great. CPU: Core i3 2100 - MicoCenter - $97.43 Motherboard: ASRock H61M/U3S3 - Newegg - $60 Memory: G.SKILL Value Series 8GB...

    DIY Swiftech MCP355 / Laing DDC3.2 Pump Repair Guide - Walkthrough

    There is a new revision of the upgrade board. It is now white and has built in LED's. Looks pretty good with a clear top. I think this would look very nice with a clear res top so that the light has more area of diffusion. Lights on: Lights off:

    I have played around with it. On the computer it isn't bad for free with the advertisement, but on a mobile device it is 100% worthless unless you are paying for premium.

    Changes Throughout The Laing DDC / Swiftech MCP Pumps (Informational)

    This is a video explaining the difference between the DDC1, DDC2, DDC3.1 DDC3.2, and MCP35X pump is. I hope to get my hands on a stock DDC2 pump along with a DDC3.25 pump so that every DDC pump is compared other than the DDC1VC which is the G5 model. If a DDC1VC comes along though I won't say...

    DIY Swiftech MCP355 / Laing DDC3.2 Pump Repair Guide - Walkthrough

    Swiftech MCP35X vs MCP355 / Laing DDC2 (DIYINHK Modded) - Flow Rate Test

    I have received some PM's regarding this so I will go ahead and provide some more information. Using the stock capacitors do NOT go above 16v for normal use. If you change the capacitors you can go higher, but at some point the current will be too high for the IC and it will fail. Based on the...

    Any reason a pump like this wouldn't suffice?

    The pump seems ok as long as the specs are accurate which they may or may not be. One thing is you don't know how loud or reliable it is. Actual specs here: http://www.attwoodmarine.com/store/product/Potable-Water-Pump

    Swiftech MCP35X vs MCP355 / Laing DDC2 (DIYINHK Modded) - Flow Rate Test

    I am proficient in SMD soldering so it only takes me a few minutes to do. Around the same time or possibly less than it would take me to open the pump and unsolder everything. As for noise it doesn't bother me any since the point of this test will be to show flow rate and pressure of...

    Swiftech MCP35X vs MCP355 / Laing DDC2 (DIYINHK Modded) - Flow Rate Test

    First of all I want to say this is not a scientific test I just did it for fun since it is a very good visual test. Once I gather a few other configurations I will do an actual test with a spl meter, flow meter, and manometer. A stock Swiftech MCP35X with a revision 2 reservoir vs an early...

    Can I use this pump? And how?

    Its a DDC1 which means it will have a black impeller and no modding is possible unless the board is replaced. You can use the pump no problem. Just replace the connector on there and you are good to go.

    AT&T To Cap DSL Internet Data Usage At 150GB

    That is about as accurate as it gets, but as far as I know until that site is usable they don't have anything to stand on in trying to charge me more for usage or even send me a warning so I guess I will continue doing what I am doing until the time comes.
