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.
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.Edited by NaeKuh - 6/10/11 at 11:20am
