2 Pumps/Radiators Better ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Having 2 pumps is it better ? will you see better performance what about with 2 radiators and a single pump ? or 2 pumps and 2 radiators ? I will just be cooling my i7 950 CPU but if i get better performance I will go for it.

Yes more rads will give a better temp, if the 1st rad aint cooling down to ambient temp. Is the out pipe on your rad now warm?

You wont see a temp difference with more pumps. My D5 low or full I have no temp change.

People have 2 pumps for;

Redundancy - If you have a rig running 24/7 with 1 pump and the pump died the rig will over heat and could be damaged. But if you have 2 pumps And one goes you are safe.

Boosting flow - 1 block 2 rads will run of a single pump easy.

You do not need two pumps unless you run you computer 24/7 or a lot of the time in case one dies the other will still go. You do not need two pumps unless you have a very restrictive loop.


You won't see any temperature changes with two pumps. The more radiator you have the more the loop will cool, but at some point adding more radiator is useless as you will see absolutely no change whatsoever.
