Phobya DC12-260 12Volt Pump
After the first products the manufacturer consortium Phobya now introduces a pump series which rattles the cages in the performance-pump sector. This product perfectly combines all the requirements from different watercooling users:
Quiet: At less than 22dB even most fans in the system emit more noise. For decoupling and therefore further noise reduction two kits are included with the pump: The first a map for quick and easy mounting on the case floor. The mat is self-adhesive on both sides and therefore reliably fixates the pump. The second possibility for pump installation are two brackets with which the pump can be fixated in the case.
A ceramic-based centrifugal bearing promises quiet operation and a long lifespan.
Compact: With the small outer dimensions (see technical specifications) the pump can be installed in almost any corner of the case, even in Midi- or Mini-towers. The compact dimensions of the pump also make connection to the cooling loop easy as the pump's position can easily be varied.
Powerful: Such a small and quiet pump so far always required compromises regarding the power. Not anymore! 2,6m of pressure head and 600l/h of flow are the kind of performance that will not be stopped even by cooling loops even with multiple waterblocks.
G1/4" connection: No adaptors, no annoyingly long connectors any more! Simply screw in the desired connector and you are set to go!
12V connector: The first advantage of a 12V connector is that it makes the connection with a 230V cable obsolete and that internal operation is made safe and easy. The other great feature of this pump is the connector: It is not a standard 4-Pin Molex connector, it is a 3-Pin fan connector which powers this pump (Important: Check the requirements and capabilities of the sockets to which you connect the pump). This pump can therefore be operated at a fan connector on a Mainboard or a fan controller. This also allows a speed reduction of the pump: Only 8V are required for starting and operation of the pump which makes it additionally quiet and smooth in operation. The fan connector also offers the advantage of rpm monitoring with a compatible controller. Features Color: Black

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.

Anybody who has been near their share of computer systems will appreciate that not all systems make the same amount of noise. There are a number of reasons for why this is so. Firstly, a computer makes noise for different reasons. Generally, anything mechanical is going to make noise.
