The Innovatek HPPS Plus 12V pump (based on the Eheim) is the upgraded and improved flagship pump from Innovatek. It is an power boost and performance upgrade upon the design of the original HPPS 12V Pump that has been used and relied upon by the thousands. The 20% improvement in the pump's discharge head puts it at an impressive 2.05 meters (6.7 feet). Even with the power increase it still only consumes 3 Watts of power to operate.
This pump is designed for use with Innovatek cpu blocks and reservoirs. The Innovatek Plug-On Reservoirs are designed to mate with this pump with no extra parts.
Special Operating Modes:
NOTE: The normal mode is more than sufficient for 99% of the users. Innovatek added the other two special modes for advanced users with special applications.
Changing the modes will VOID THE WARRANTY. To change the mode - pull off the blue end cap, extract the control board and move the jumpers to the setting you want to use.
It features a "Silent" and a "Power" mode.
Silent Mode: In Silent Mode the microprocessor in the pump changes the operating instructions the pump's drive so the pump becomes completely "inaudible". The pump however loses some pumping performance (5.4 foot discharge head - which is still more than sufficient.)
Power Mode:In Power Mode the pump's microprocessor boosts the maximum operating voltage to bring the discharge head closer to 13 feet and looks independently for the maximum possible operating point! The pump will no longer be very quiet, but the performance increase is signifcant.
Normal Mode (delivery condition): This is the compromise between maximum performance and minimum noise. This is generally the optimal operating condition in normal water cooling systems - the pump is almost inaudible and still has extreme performance (6.7 foot discharge head).
Warning: Use of fluids other than the Innovatek Protect family is not recommended. Innovatek will not RMA defective products that have used alternative fluids, including UV Dyes. Do not use alcohol based cleaners on innovatek products.

No heat from pump; base can be refitted to either side; I have setting on foam pad in front HD bay with 120mm fan in front -- cannot hear pump over 800 rpm quiet fan.

My pump works great. Had this for a year and a half still runs fine can''t hear a sound from it BUT fyi if you do not use innovatek coolant the pump gets this buzzz/humm I think it''s the viscosity of the coolant fluid. I only say that cause it''s the one thing I changed and the sound started i put innovatek fluid back in it and the sound is gone.

The pump is very quiet except but it does produce a faint constant high pitch whine which can be annoying on a quiet system. Still it is a very good pump. The optional base is expensive, but does work well. The G1/4 adapters are not included. It seems very well engineered compared to comparable pumps.

I have been using this pump for about 4-5 months now. It has been perfect, nice and quiet operation. The pump body is filled with a kind of insulation material that contains the pump and provides noise blocking and protection from shock and the elements. Vibration is decent for its power however, I would recommend the dampening bracket kit (separate purchase) to attach the pump to your case, it makes a huge difference. In addition, you can pull out the PCB and connect the pump directly to the Innovatek controller (separate purchase) with the wires included with the controller. I believe the PCB board only provides voltage control and speed control but I am not positive (the Innovatek controller assume responsibility of these tasks). The controller does a great job at controlling this pump without harsh starts and stops. Be sure to get the proper hose attachments. The top one (output) comes with it but the side one (input) does not. This is because this pump was primarily designed to be attached directly to a reservoir. It would have been nice if Innovatek included a fitting for the side. The pump also easily slides off the base place (maybe a little too easily). The red pump model is not much more money but still not worth the cost. It uses double the wattage when the blue model is more than you will ever need for a single LARGE loop. I have a dual 80mm rad, going to CPU block, voltage reg block, north bridge/south bridge combo block, four Koolance RAM blocks, and two DD GPU water block, to a quad 120mm rad, to res and back to pump. The pump is running at 1/3 speed with easy 95 degree F water temps (after all blocks and before the quad 120mm rad!) with system overclocked 35% (Q9650 quad core) at full CPU and GPU load! (2x GTX280 BFG water cooled model). Tubing is ID 3/8”. If this pump can easily handle this load at only 1/3 then is will handle anything that you will ever have to throw at it.

This pump can also be mounted on its side to give more flexibility with tubing positions.
