post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Now I was trying to get some answers about purchising a new pump for my w/c setup. I currently have the xspc rasa kit now, dont get me wrong i do love the kit but im trying to get lower temps and im about to add another rad so im going to need a stronger pump to handle it. Now question is i was wandering whats a great pump i can get that will cost max of $90. Any sugestions would be highly appreciated
THX for the help guys.

That's probably your best choice in that price range. But how much radiator space are you thinking of adding? You might be just fine with your current pump.

you dont need two rads. Just one. a 360 rad can handle a gpu and cpu with no problem also you temps will be depicted by your ambient temps. also getting better fans can help to

get MCP65 if you're using 1/2" ID tubing, maybe you want it to look nice/clean,replace the stock top with an aftermarket one.
if you want more option pump, get the MCP355+aftermarket top

no more pump without knowing any other value is moot.

What is tied to your raza?
Did u get an accurate flow rate? or an assumed flow rate?

dual pumps are more for redunancy, and when you dual pumps, its in your best interest to pair the pump up as closely as possible. (im a dual pump guru @ XS )

What happens in a dual pump, is one helps the other work out restrictions, so you get double head @ 1/3rd of the more flow. If your pumps arent paired up correctly, its possible to do more work outside the range of one of your pumps, and in turn burn it out.

head pressure wont help you unless u have a nasty loop, and 1/3rd more flow will only let u about 100-120W more holding capacity, which u probably wont see on a radiator 120x3 or larger.

We need to know what u have, and what fans are on that rad.
You may be stuck in your efficiency bubble, and you cant squeeze out without finding a way to improve ambient.

There is no term, bigger is always better in water.
Because bigger gets smashed by something called physics and ambient.

Sorry for the lack of info. I'm currently using the rs240 which at the time was fine for my current rig a the time. Sine then I've added 2 6950 o/c. And by my CPU being o/c to 4 ghz I've realized the w/c not sufficient. Because of this I've had to return 1 gpu down to stock and remove the other totally. I would loved to have gotten a 360 Rad only problem is can't fit one in the case. Already got blk ice rads because of how thin they were due to the lack room next to mobo. I'm also using yate loon fans
