You are correct it is a 900D

Well, I did reply twice since posting that but if you want my full explanation, the guy (who, I repeat, works on the design of liquid cooling components for a living) said that the performance of CPU blocks is strongly affected by the water pressure. It didn't make all that much sense to me either, but by the sound of what he was trying to go for, the fact that the water immediately leaving the pump has a bunch of unsteady pressure gradients in it causes the water to behave differently in the block than if the pressure had equalized across the flow, and that this was beneficial.

I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt since he did quote his job and some of the experiments they've run on their designs. There are probably more factors involved than I care to know. Maybe the fin spacing was too high so getting turbulent flow was difficult, but having the block right after the pump made the flow turbulent in the block anyway, etc.

Thanks for your pic, that gave me some ideas for tubing order, etc...

What fluid are you using, and tubing? I love the look of it! I'm just using plain distilled water and a biocide at the moment, but I'd like to go clear tubes and red fluid.

The fluid is EK EKoolant Blood Red and the tubing is XSPC FLX Premium Grade 1/2"

I liked the tubing my kit came with much better than the advanced LRT stuff I ordered separately. The XSPC tubes were less restrictive when it came to bending. Anyway, have you noticed any staining in the tubes?

Yeah but that XSPC tubing is infamous for pretty bad plasticizer issues. It's just not worth it to have to break down the loop, scrub the junk out of every block, and replace the tubing. That's the main reason to go with Primochill Advanced LRT instead.

I remember the Primochill had plasticizer problems for a while back a couple of years. Did they fix it?

Granted my Primochill is fine, but just wondering.

The older Primochill PRO LRT is as terrible for plasticizer as XSPC tubing is. Actually, probably even more so. Avoid at all costs.

Their newer Primochill Advanced LRT tubing is plasticizer issue-free. It's by far the most recommended tube to buy these days for good reason.
