If you have a strong enough power supply or an extra one, or I think a DC to AC converter, and need a cheap pump for your watercooler, checkout the sporting goods section of Kmart! I picked up a 460gph one for $13

wow...I could use that instead of my 110V AC Eheim pump. Well, how about the noise? Is it loud or quiet?
And do you have the specs of the pump? Manufacturer, model number, etc,etc?
Thanks for your info.

Yeah I'd have to agree I'm a cheap ***, but when it comes to Watercooling my system I'm not sure If I'd wanna replace anything in my PC to save $20-30. I'm not saying they're not great Pumps. But I'd spend alittle more for a Quiet, Well Manufactured Pump. And Not all Expensive Pump's are Great either (well for what we use them for). But I'd Spend a good $50 to get a 700GPH, Quiet, Only 1 Moving Part. But that's just me

Well, I decided to keep my Eheim 1046 pump.
It's not a super strong pump...rated at only 80gph but it's almost noiseless and it's doing it's job. I might upgrade the pump to higher gph when I have enough budget.
