Danger Den DDC-12V Water Pump Review

Cooling/Water Cooling by KeithSuppe @ 2004-12-10

If water cooling is in your blood, Danger Den needs no introduction. If you plan on making the transformation from air to water cooling, Danger Den is a company you may want to get to know better. Today were going to take a look at what may be the smallest 400l/h pump available, the Danger Den DDC-12V.

Conclusion

So onto our most important test: Can the Danger Den DDC-12V, a Lilliputian piece of hardware, adequately circulate enough H20 to tame the approximately 155W dissipated by the P4 550 running at 4.0GHz at 1.44Vcore? Take a look.

An unequivocal YES is in order. It seems the pump is able to keep up, and even running under an environment 2°C above the ambient temp during the Hydor test both were virtually even. Finally our summary chart:

Conclusion:

Danger Den has certainly spec'd a winner in the LAING sourced Delphi DDC-12V DC-pump. They've mated a pump with extraordinarily high pressure, and minimal flow rate. Most striking is the pump's size and I've yet to see anything on the market this small and packing so much power. The maximum height of the pump, at just over 14FT is simply amazing. It's so quiet it's almost completely silent and should draw no attention to itself what-so-ever. This pump should mount easily just about anywhere in your case/system you can think of. This is not a submergible pump, which I shy away from as they inevitably sit in the water they pump, adding their operational heat to the water. The DDC-12V is just $74.95 at the Danger Den Store and is highly recommended. Most definitely a keeper!
