If you want a real shocker, time how long it takes to pump a liter of water. biggrin.gif
If you do test pump flow, please let me know what you get. Asetek does not release that information. tongue.gif

Umm it took about 3 minutes to fill a 2L Ice cream container when I was flushing it. Granted mine was on the brink of death but dayumm.

That's about 30 liter/hour. Here is a chart I've been working on showing AIO and CLC pump specs.

Only to show a baseline and contrast, it might be interesting to add lines at the bottom showing a standard (not custom top) D5 and DDC pump. I think people might be shocked to see the massive flow/pressure differences between CLC minipumps and the real things.

Came across this so any chance this can be added to the OP
https://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/2122-who-actually-makes-liquid-coolers-oems

The only brand that seem to be missing is Be Quiet so is there a better database somewhere else on the web?
Also Asetek based coolers should be avoided like the bubonic plague as they are some of the worst patent trolls around

The graph posted above by doyll should also be added

I made a chart with additional data and gamersnexus data:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1491876/ways-to-better-cooling-airflow-cooler-fan-data/60_20#post_23781217

Sure wish I could find more data about Asetek, Apaltek and CoolIT pumps and their specifications.

Yeah, it's so weird that they won't publish any specs.....almost like they have something to hide..... biggrin.gif

I had the specs on the first Apaltek released by Silverstone. Not great, but not as horrifically bad as what we have seen measured on Asetek and CoolIt units.

I personally love my Enermax Liqtech TR4, Great peice of kit for the money. There are disadvantages with any cooler type but I think CLC is just fine so long as you understand the limitations and have done the correct homework prior to committing to it.

Cal me old fashioned, but in my opinion, a good tower with a push/pull setup is the best way to go. Had a TRUE with a couple of 3k Kazes (with a fan controller for obvious reasons) that kept my CPU nice a cold. Now running this NHU12P SE2 with the same 2 Kazes that have been going for years with no problem and great temps.

HI,
Yeah I was so close to buying a Kraken x62 and thankfully they were sold out at my local micro center
I read on 3Dguru they actually require using facebook and something else to save a lighting profile lol biggrin.gif

That it self was a deal breaker but all of the bad reviews with dead pumps was also eye opening :shock:

Either way sort of sad the new EK offerings grew their 280 rad size a couple inches looks like frown.gif
Bummer they sized it out of my case :/
EK 280 performance rad size is perfect.
335mm frown.gif
