Few questions on my upgrade (Pump, Larger Loop)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So heres the current setup:

Swifttech MCP 655 Pump (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835108082)
Swiftech 2x120 radiator (Don't know model, came in a kit I got like 5 years ago)
Koolance CPU-350 CPU Block
Swiftech Microres

Last week I decided to invest what I thought was going to be a few hundred bucks (ended up at almost 7 bills) to put my two gtx470s on water.So new setup will add:

RX360 radiator
2x ek-fc470 waterblocks
XPSC Single bay Res
Fillport from res to top of case (maybe)

Loop:

Res>Pump>240rad>CPU>360rad>GPU1>GPU2>Res

So i have a few questions:

My main concern is weather or not my pump will be able to handle that loop?

Also I know the Koolance CPU-350 is enginered for high pressure, and obviously with the larger loop I will loose that. How much of an effect can I expect on my CPU temps?

I've always used Swiftech Hydrx, and just ordered more... Will this mixed with distilled be OK?

Thanks a lot in advance guys, probably shoul've asked these questions before the shopping spree!

Your pump should handle that fine...
I'd just use distilled water + PT_nuke or a Silver Kill Coil...
