Help with quieting a water pump

Post by TytaniaPRIME » Sun Jan 04, 2015 9:46 pm

I have the Phobya DC12-260 water pump, just finished my custom water cooling system and realized the loudest component by far is my water pump.
I was thinking about using noise dampening foam and basically wrap the pump up to silence it. I was wondering if this is a good idea, and if so does anyone have suggestions on what type of foam to use?
Also note that the pump itself is creating the noise not the vibration its giving off to the system, its already sitting on a piece of adhesive foam that came with it.

Thanks

That's the problem, it's a Pump.

PISTON , it pulls and pushes, pulls and pushes (want me to say it again) :roll:

You don't need a Pump, you need a Circulator.

In place of a Piston, a Circulator will have an Impeller (water fan).

You really don't know this, do you?
There are several types of pumps, and every single one used for this sort of water cooling is of the centrifugal type. An impeller rotating at high speed moving the water from its center inlet to the radially positioned outlet.

(And the thread is four years old, on top of that.)
