Swiftech MCP655 12 VDC Pump Liquid Cooling System

ICON Loading...

The pump is the heart of a liquid cooling system; your water blocks, reservoirs, radiators, and tubing will be useless if their heart fails to beat. Swiftech offers us the MCP655, a high-output, high-pressure, heavy-duty industrial water pump that will provide you years of reliable performance.

The MCP655 utilizes a spherical impeller, which contains only one moving part: a magnetically driven spherical impeller that spins on a single ceramic bearing for an extended life cycle and superior pressure capability that will keep your coolant flowing even under the harshest condition.

The pump takes most of the guesswork out of installation by connecting directly to your computer power supply with a standard 4-pin power connector. With a compact design, the pump will fit nicely in any system. Its quiet, powerful motor suits it for heavy duty cooling in mission critical machines. This reasonably priced pump will give you the plug and play, no hassle performance, long life and low cost of ownership, so what are you waiting for? Just give your water cooling system a healthy new “heart” to squeeze every last drop of performance out of your rig.

  • newegg Excellent Compatibility The Swiftech MCP655 features great compatibility with any high-flow liquid cooling system using 1/2" ID tubing.
  • newegg Reliable Performance The ceramic bearing significantly increases the Swiftech MCP655's life expectancy for up to 50,000 hours of failure-free operation.
  • newegg Variable Speed The back of the Swiftech MCP655 features a potentiometer, so you can easily adjust the pump speed from 1800 RPM to 4800 RPM to suit your particular needs.
  • newegg No Maintenance The Swiftech MCP655 requires no maintenance when used with de-mineralized water and the appropriate anti-fungal additives.
  • newegg Quick Installation The Swiftech MCP655 can either be installed with the built-in neoprene pad featuring a peel-off adhesive back, or permanently mounted to the chassis with included thru-bolts.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking since 2010

Pros: Quiet
Variable speed setting
Easy to disassemble for cleaning
Durable
Compact

Cons: Tube connectors are awful. Installing tubing over the lip is the most frustrating and annoying part of redoing my loop, but once the tubing is secure, I have no fear of it leaking, even without using compression bands.

Other Thoughts: This pump has worked consistently for about four years. It's quiet, easy to take apart and clean, and still performs well.

I've used it in three different setups, and it has not failed to impress me. The most blocks I've used it with was three (CPU, northbridge, and GPU) and it worked flawlessly.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Pump!

Pros: Been running almost 3 years 24/7 on high! Never had a problem, havent noticed any reduction in speed. My liquid cooling system does have an air bubble problem (Due to the reservoir), yet I've never had a problem with cavitation.

The first pump I had cost twice as much as this, and was shot in the first 5 months. If your looking for something dependable, this should be the route you take!

I did have to make my own mount for it, however that was only because I took it off the original sticky mount, and ruined it.

Very quiet!

Cons: None at all! I did have to make my own mount for it, however that was only because I took it off the original sticky mount, and ruined it. At the price of this unit, and the quality of the actual pump, I wouldent really call this a con.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat pump

Pros: Lasted through 3 different liquid-cooling loops from mid-2008 until late 2012 when I sold it at everyone's favorite online auction site...for slightly more than half of what I original paid. That kind of return on investment is awesome. Oh, and it performed flawlessly during the years I used it. Quiet, powerful, and I liked being able to easily play with pump speed as I manipulated the cooling loops.

Cons: It is a little bulky, so mounting solutions can be a bit tricky and not really all that pleasing to the eye. Minor complaints overall.

Other Thoughts: I will buy another when funding for the new rig is available.

2 out of 5 eggsMediocre experience with this pump

Pros: Quiet, efficient pump while it lasted.

Cons: Mean time before failure is supposed to be 5 years, but mine died after 18 months. Maybe this was a rare case, but I am quite disappointed. The system could have been fried had I not configured it to shut down if the CPU goes over 60 degrees.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Pump

Pros: Very quiet, powerful, runs off of 12VDC, Speed adjustable.

Cons: The inlet/outlet ports may pose a challenge to those using smaller 3/8 or 9mm diameter hoses.

Other Thoughts: I bought this pump after my Eheim 1048 pump finally needed to be replaced after 10 years. I wanted to replace it with another, but I guess they've fallen out of favor for the PC market, and I wanted one that could run off of 12 volts. Swiftech kept coming up, and the glowing reviews convinced me.

The Eheim was quiet, but this guy is dead silent. No electromagnetic hum, no vibration. Just a very slight whine at higher speeds that is inaudible over ambient room noise. And MAN does this thing pump! Shoots water like a garden hose through my 3 water blocks. I have it down to its lowest speed which is more than adequate for my overclocked rig.

5 out of 5 eggsLong lasting pump

Pros: I had been using different versions of this pump for over four years and went througn three genernations of cpu and gpu and they still going strong, just wonder how long they can last ! I just ordered a spare just in case.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: If it came with a better mounting kit then it will be perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: This pump is very quiet even on the highest setting. Very powerful as well. I am cooling 2 GTX 480 video cards along with an x6 processor hooked up to a 360 radiator.

Cons: Only negative is that the inlet and outlet aren't threaded to allow compression fittings to screw into them. This can be remedied by buying an after market "Pump top".

Other Thoughts: Buy with confidence. I've owned 3 pumps in the past and this one blows them out of the water (no pun intended. Ok yes pun intented) in every aspect. A+

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quiet, easy to install (standard 1/2 ID hose fittings). Works great, high pump rate, no leaks.

Cons: none at all! Computer has been on about 60-70 hours a week and still works like the day it was installed.

Other Thoughts: Definatly worth the money, must have for a WC system.
