Question about using CPU blocks with integrated pumps in loops

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So say I am using a Swiftech MCP655-b and I have the Cooler Master Eisberg Solo Prestige Water Block w/ Integrated Pump ( http://www.frozencpu.com/products/18955/ex-wat-246/Cooler_Master_Eisberg_Solo_Prestige_Water_Block_w_Intergrated_Pump_RL-EBSL-FLNN-R1.html?tl=c85s1703b26#blank ) in my loop. Since the pump in the CPU block is weaker than the MCP655 will it slow down my flow? Or will it rocket the water through the block since there is a second pump? I've been wondering about this. Thanks ~Josh

The block it's self is providing enough restriction where the pump will just help move everything along. It shouldn't slow anything down.

Are you using a bay reservoir?

If you are I would order the loop

Waterblock -> rads -> pump-> res -> back to waterblock.

Having your pumps in a push/pull config seems like it would work better than two pumps in push configuration.

Never!!!
I don't like bay reservoirs that much. biggrin.gif

I've got a similar setup with a XSPC bay res/pump and a 655 variable. Adding the slower pump really increases flow!

Hu, two pumps on the intake seems.... odd...... to say the least....

Thanks ~Josh

An extra pump by itself is very very unlikely to ever slow any loop down. What i would be worried about is the block restriction. I don't know about the Iceberg but most all in one coolers are very restrictive and its possible that using it combined with another pump would end up with a lower overall flow rate than just using the 655 with a normal waterblock.
Without proper testing data on the Iceberg its very hard to know.

A quick look seems to indicate the Eisberg having very similar specs and components to the Swiftech H220 and that will definitely restrict flow rates compared to a normal CPU block.

Mixing modern high flow components with components design for much lower flow rates is difficult.

Hello guys...
i want to order Ιcebear solo pump but i dont know if it have lower pressure...i know that Icebear is more quit insted Iceberg...but the performance is similar?
