Alphacool VPP655 - Single Edition im Cartago´s Review
Von Peter Martin Werstler aka Cartago2202
Hello friends cold hardware!
In today's review I want to tell you the new Alphacool VPP655 - Single Edition pump present in more detail.
I have decided to write this review because I seemed to think the white manufacturer's very logical. This is the pump, known to us all, Laing D5 Vario. The version is a "Single Edition" which simply means how that comes with only the pump body itself, there is no case or other accessories.
The approach of the manufacturer to sell the pump without case is quite simple: almost every one of these pump buy it builds to also to match their own needs in terms of appearance or performance. As to other "tops" bought or reservoir, so as to achieve a piece of individuality. This is very commendable since this philosophy reduces the price of the pump simply because the parts would you go this way or that are not supplied.
For this review I was available both an RF D5 Alphacool top, a Phobya 5.25 "Bay Reservoir as well as an EK top with integrated Terms of EK Water Bloks EK-D5 X-RES Top 100
Here some impressions of the time utilized to Review hardware.
To the pump itself is not much to say it the original also has the option of speed control via knob, the cable is very long and the work is impeccable, but unfortunately it does not have a tach signal wire.
Now we come to the technical specifications of the pump:
Dimensions (WxHxD): 65x65x57mm (without connections)
Engine: Electronically commutated spherical motor
Standard voltage: 12V DC
Allowable Voltage: 8-24V DC
Pressure at 12V: 3,7 m water column
Maximum flow: 1500l / h
Pump Medium: Water, water / glycol mixture
Maximum system temperature: 60 ° C
Related materials: Stainless steel 1.4571, PPS-GF40, EPDM O-rings, aluminum oxide, hard coal

Level 2: 2550 rpm
Level 3: 3300 rpm
Level 4: 4050 rpm
Level 5: 4800 rpm
Current connection: 4 Pin Molex
The pump is a spherical motor pump which can be operated at a voltage between 8-24 volts. The power consumption of up to 23 watts already convinced of the "Power " that goes into the pump. The head is 3.7 m and the maximum capacity of 1500 liters per hour, these figures relate to 12V supply voltage. Of course, the pump is not only the dial Adjustable but also with any potent control all steps, eg. Heat Master.
Is tested in a real system but currently only cools the CPU make, but with three radiators especially resistant enough for the water is repeatedly deflected.

The pump I will compete against two other pumps in the form of:
Phobya DC12-400 and
Laing DDC 1T Plus with an XSPC top terms
I am not going into this test awareness on information from temperature and concentrate instead only on the achieved flow and my subjective perception of noise.
And here are the results summarized in a table.
As can be seen from the table that the pump beats very well and refers to both the DDC 1T Plus as well as the Phobya DC12-400 on the rear seats.
Unfortunately, the operation of the EK-D5 X-RES Top 100 is possible without the filter sponge in any of the levels, which are EC has thinking in precisely these terms the "anti-cyclone" allow use from me is a mystery, it is a must have this or to use a sponge filter it since someone the sight of a beautiful swirl lacking in its terms and conditions.
This pump is, as expected, was the strongest and also the quietest in this review. The idea to sell individual and thus to reduce the retail price is really unique and very commendable from Alphacool. This saved money can then spend on each in its individual concept. Of course, Alphacool has continued to offer in their retail versions, but the majority of the people who pump for this interesting and they want to buy from Alphacool be to your left. A single point of criticism I find Nevertheless, and although the lack of speed signal cables for example. Have integrated Koolance Swiftech or in their pumps.
Nothing in spite of the concept is really good, and sensed the pump pretty much all the requirements of a good water pump with flying colors. For the good performance and low price gets the pump from me the Cartago's Review "HOT" Award.
I hereby would like to thank Alphacool.
