This product is the latest version.
This pump is the first pump in the world that is being installed in mass-produced water-cooled workstations, and is ideal for cooling processors and electronic components. Its design size and performance make it perfect for many different applications.
This DDC pump is an electronically commutated ball bearing motor pump, with a runtime of over 50,000 hours at 12V. The only moving piece on a ball bearing motor pump is a spherical rotor/impeller unit, which is supported by an ultra-hard, wear-resistant ceramic bearing ball. There is no conventional shaft with shaft bearings and sealing. The spherical bearing of the rotor/impeller on the ceramic bearing ball offers many advantages: due to the design, no bearing slackness will develop, and therefore also no increase in noise level. This means that over its entire lifespan, the pump will stay low-noise. The bearing is self-adjusting, and is lubricated by the coolant being pumped (wet-running pump). This removes a maintenance step. Since the rotor is always magnetically held in its designated place, smaller dirt particles are not a problem.
The pump becoming blocked is normally not possible. Even after long periods of inactivity, the pump will start up reliably. The permanent-magnetic rotor/impeller unit is powered by a magnetic field, which is generated by the surrounding stator. This stator is built completely around the rotor. This means the entire pump, at 38mm, is only a little taller than the stator itself. It fits easily into any commercially-available PC, Barebone, or Mini-PC case. A separate magnetic shield is normally not necessary. The ball bearing motor principle enables economical operation with comparably high performance. The pump can be regulated simply and over a wide range of power variations to the DC operating voltage. All parts coming in contact with the coolant are completely corrosion-resistant.

Scope of Delivery
Laing DDC Pump 12V DDC-1T PWM - Special Edition
The PWM function can only be used if your motherboard conforms to Intel PWM specifications.
This pump is the newest version.
We recommend using lubricating water additives (such as AT Protect Plus or Innovatek Protect). Anti-corrosion fluid is not recommended.
Due to the performance of the pump, it should only be used in a cooling loop with min. 1 cooler. Operation under no load can cause the pump to burn out.
The Laing pump electronics are not water-resistant. Please ensure that the electronic components do not come into contact with water during installation or modification. When changing the Laing cap, be sure the O-rings are placed correctly and make sure that no water overflows when refilling the Laing reservoir. Water damage to the electronics will not be replaced by Laing.
Why is there a Swiftech and a Laing version? Is there a difference?
The answer is a definite “no.” So why are there two versions? Here’s the explanation: Laing produces all its pumps in Hungary, for both the overseas market and the German/European market. The pumps themselves are exactly the same. Some are labelled Swiftech, which is the distributor in the US market. The other version is a neutral black. The cheaper Swiftech pumps include decoupling materials, while the Laing versions do not. Otherwise, pump performance, flow rate, etc., are completely identical.
