I do not want to turn our normal pump testing and reviews into a lengthy article, so I will link you to our Pump Test Method/Spec and PQ explanation. If you are unfamiliar with PQ or want to know what makes our pump testing special compared to others, then definitely take a few minutes and give it a read before proceeding into the test results.
When covering the test results on pumps, I let the data do the talking so there will be few words and lots of data tables and charts. However, I want to call out the PWM capability here and how that added some testing to the normal DDC process. For PWM control, I hooked the PWM leads to the CPU header on our Gigabyte X58-UD7 rev1 and used EasyTune 6 for control. I added a screen capture of the settings used. I do not recommend these settings for your system, different thresholds are required, and these were just the settings I used for testing. With that said, I will leave you to the individual test data.
That sums up the individual testing for the MCP35X, flip the page for a look at how the MCP35X compares to other DDC’s and final thoughts.
