In other words, a bunch of guys that live in never never land and refuse to grow up.

I'm not arguing with you at all in any way, I do think they're quite a rude bunch. I'm not saying that I like them or anything, I don't really like them either but f you've got thick enough skin to read it there are a few knowledgable people in that like the guy who did testing on some EK nickel blocks.

I removed the raid wb and added a ddc 1T.

My flow is only 77 l/h (0.33 gallons / min)

The aquastream XT freq is 85.2 Hz

Not if the pumps are Laing brands. Laing uses a type of mag-lev technology for the impeller. The impeller actually floats in a flux magnetic field. The white ceramic ball can take the heat and the load. The Laing pumps are not direct drive. SO ... no extra strain and no premature wear. Now, if you were talking pumps made by Eheim, then your facts would be accurate.

Why have the quote. I can confirm it here. wink.gif

When I said in the above, " the white ceramic ball can take the heat and the load ", that is when fluid is present in the pump. Never run the pump dry at 12VDC for over five second. At 7.5VDC, the pump can run dry for about a full minute.



Martin has done a good deal of testing with dual pumps in a loop not being exactly the same. There are benefits. My 2-cents added to this is that the flow rates be within the same ball park and not ridiculously obscured. The sweet spot for the Delta-T is from 1.0gpm to 1.5gpm flow. Going above this in a loop diminishes the thermal transfer. Martin and others have proved this time and time again. So, if your loop has low flow, get a second pump to reach the gpm range.

Do you know if running the aquastream xt and the ddc is a bad idea ?

I do not see a good flow improvment with the 2 pumps. I am far from 1 gpm.

The card had a small radiator with a noisy fan. I want a silent computer so i bought a block for it => Bad idea.
I took an old aluminium radiator and put it on the card cpu, it is a fanless raid card now.

Decided to buy two 2.5 scorpio black hdd to replace my actual drives hoping they are silent and i can remove the hdd block from the loop.

Removed the hdd block, now i have 0.39 gal/min
Aquastream XT freq is 83.2 Hz

The removal of the hdd block is consistent with the fact that it is not that resistive.

I don't undestand why my flow is so low

Loop order :
Res => aquastream XT => 480 rad => flow meter => cpu block => ddc => gpu block => 360 rad => res.

Don't rule out that the flow meter may be off or not set up properly.
