Hey guys, First post, hello! I've been doing lots of research on getting my first watercooled system going. For the pump, I am leaning towards the DDC for the sole reason that I intend to move towards an SFF case sometime in the near ish future. Everything I have seen recommends a heatsink on the pump base at a minimum, with the addition of a fan being even better. I am curious though, do any pump bases exist which will route the outflow of the pump into channels around the pump base before going off into the loop? It just seems silly to me to have a heating issue on a component in a watercooling loop. Anyone have experience with this?
