XSPC Dual bay pump question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So, I'm moving my system over to a bench table from my current case and the tube legnth between components will be a lot, lot longer on the bench table. Im currently using the dual bay/pump combo I got wiht my rasa kit, its a great piece of kit but I feel as if I'm already asking too much of it.



Will it be fine? or should I fork out money for a good powerful pump and res.

If you don't want to hand over an arm and a leg why don't you just switch out the pump. Something like this...

Just my $0.02

The pump itself is completely sealed within the res. You cant get to it without breaking it, I just think pumps are super expensive for what they essentially are. Could I just carry on using what I'm using? What I'm trying to ask is, will longer length tubing put more strain on the pump?

More water + more tubing = more resistance the pump has to work against. So yes, to answer your question. However, unless you are adding another 10 feet, I would stick with what you have until I saw the temps on the bench. Then upgrade as necessary.

Definitely agree with ZHerman330 on this. Adding a second rad to that kit doesn't impact things much as they're low resistance flow wise anyway. And the GPU blcok isn't a cause for concern either. Adding more tubing will marginally lower your cooling capacity unles you're talking about adding more than say 5 feet realistically. Either way stick with it for now and see how your temps show up because open bench will also mean the rads and other parts will not be internal which will improve passive cooling.
