    You can't have too much in your loop with a MCP355!

I want to hear some opinions on what is too much for this little pump to handle, so sound off!

I love these pumps with an after market top....But for beginners I would suggest the Laing D-5... The DDC's can be hard to prime, dry starting will greatly reduce the life span of the pump....

Thats why they first made the after-market tops with a G-1/4 fitting in the top, to bleed them...It didn't take long for a tweaker to find out how putting a fitting on the top raised the flow...

All that being said this is the top I like......Petra's Tech Shop

You crack me up Ira, it seems like the last week or so weve been going back and forth on WC pumps.


I guess I should provide some info on why I started the poll: I bought a DD torture rack (build log in the intel section, will have a major update on it tonight). Given that I got a new "case", some may argue it's not really a case, I decided to redo my WC setup.

WC setup now includes:
Swiftech Apogee
Swiftech MCW60
Danger Den Maze4 (Northbridge)
MCP355 w/ Petratech top
Black Ice Xtreme 240
Performance PCs Cyclone 120 reservoir

I'm not too concerned about having all that in the loop because I think the MCP355 can handle that. My concern is temps. The way the torture rack is setup I can only mount 2 fans on the BIX 240. Now I have an BIX 120 from a previous build and I think that may help the temps IF I can keep the head pressure and flow up, but I just don't know.....

I wish there was a way to calculate restriction of each component in the loop....

Snerp, you mean about adding the other BIX 120?

I think my loop will be setup like this:

MCP355->BIX240->Apogee->Maze4->BIX120->MCW60->Reservoir->pump

I don't think you really need the extra rad.

I know whodie, for advanced users the 18W DDC if fine, but I hate to see new guys buying them because of bleeding problems...
In your case it should be fine, I just dont want to over sale them to the inexperienced users....
Dont forget I am the one who pointed them out to you...Is this a stupid idea?? - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

Oh trust me, I didn't forget. That discussion is what made me buy the DDC.

Ah well, I'll just go for just the BIX 240 in the loop and see what happens. Maybe I'll use the BIX120 to cool my media rig with the 805.

I would Whodie, 1 240 BIX in that loop should be plenty......
