I dont think it will blow it up, there prolly exacly the same pump minus the extra soldering to make it 18w, not sure tho.

yep, thats what the pads are for, to make it easy for manufacturer to change it.

Used to make products like this also,

standard version
Non standard, with few extra components and bridge point.

It hasn't gone bad, you just can;t live with the noise the 18w gives out.

+1 on the d5s, now that pricing on either types is similar.

i.e: expensive, used to buy d5s at about £40

Am I right in saying I could do this mod, but instead of soldering over the pads, I could solder leads to them running to an external switch, and then be able to run 10w most of the time, and then bump up to 18w when gaming? Just like running fans slowly normally but then turning up the fan controller when gaming?

Nice idea, and simple too :)

Might steal that for Discovery's control panel (whenever I get around to building the sod!) :D

I also asked elsewhere about linking it to a fan controller or the likes to get adjustable rpm between 10 and 18w, but it seem like it would be too much work :(

Oh dear! After all that my pump is different! It has a blue impeller but this is the circuit board:

Posted Image

Im currently scouring the net to try and work out if I can still do the mod?

Can anyone shed any light?

A real good up-close pic of the other common PCB layout showing the tracks would help?

BTW The blue wire is the speed sensor wire, is that the same for everyone?


Oh and my PCB says:

LAING
DDC3.1-PWM
075-162

I think the answer to whether I can do it lies in this thread:

http://www.hardwarel...n-758652-2.html


It looks to me as if I can actually control the pump from my MOBO! This must be due to it being one of the newest pumps (< 6 months old).

Can anyone speak German? Cos copy and pasting the text into a translater is getting me anywhere!

Thanks

Hmmm, looks like if Swiftech/Laing have clocked that people were hacking them and changed the PCB layout.

Could be something to try with my current Pro though :)
