I recommend the D5. Ive used both and I find the D5 to be near silent. I use an XSPC pump top reservoir. Very compact.
I have seen no value in premix fluids. I have used distilled water and silver coils and had no issues with my blocks...
Second the flow meter.
Ive always used either black or white primochill tubing. So.....
theres a little turbulence in the reservoir
You cant "see" flow after the loop equilibrates anyway.
Answer: flowmeter or blind faith
Ive always chosen blind...
I indeed looked through their website.
I even sent a support request in last week but Ive not heard back .
I know that my current AM4 kit will fit AM5, but I cant find anything regarding S1700 backward compatibility.
My Heatkiller 3.0...
Im considering using my Heatkiller 3.0 on a new build with a S1700 Intel cpu. ie gen 13 or 14 Intel. I cant find anywhere that says yes or no to being able to use the S115x hardware. I dont see any adapter kits anywhere. Maybe it cant be done?
