D5 Vario flow rate

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm getting close to finishing my first watercooling loop! Bleeding the air out right now. I have a koolance flowmeter installed that is reading 0.7 GPM at setting 4. Is this normal? From looking at some flow calculators I thought that I'd be able to reach 1ish gpm pretty easily. I'm running a raystorm cpu block, 2 EK gpus, 3 ex radiators, and some 3/8 ID tubing.

Make sure you have the flow meter set for the correct size pump.

Also the 3/8" tubing is going to restrict the flow also and with 3 rads,CPU and 2 GPU's I think you are pretty close to what you are going to get what with your set up. what dose it give you if you put the pump at 5?

Oh forgot to tell you it looks good.. You did a very good job on this!! thumb.gif

Setting 4 gives you enough power to get through 2.8 PSI of restriction. setting 5 ups that to about 4.8 PSI
The Raystorm is about .8 PSI
The EK GPU's are about 1 PSI each
The EX rads, because they are thin rads, are about 0.4 PSI each

That's about 4 PSI of restriction at 1 GPM or just under setting 5 on a D5 vario

Never seen it explained this way.. where did you get your figures from I would be interested in reading this??

I had read these reviews and see those charts and still never put it together like you did... Now I see it and it is so simple. I guess trying to read too fast and absorb too much information at 1 time.

Thanks for the help, explanation or how ever you call it.... I learned something for sure today and that is always good.

It's easily confusing because the flow / restriction relationship is non linear. A drop in flow of only .25 GPM requires a lot more restriction and the individual restriction of each component drops along with the flow rate. At the same time with pumps the pressure output in also non linear.

I am no expert but I only got a good handle on it by playing around with dual pumps and a flow meter, combined with the few blocks and rads I have available. Combined with Martins excellent information of course.

I'm glad that anybody would find anything useful in it. thumb.gif

Thanks for the info! The other issue is that the flow sensor sheet tells me that air bubbles will give inaccurate readings which is part of why I was confused. I'm at work now, but I'll test out setting 5 when I get home. Should have read martins pump planner more carefully...I would probably have picked up the pwm mcp. You guys now how the noise level at setting 5 is once the system has finished bleeding?

It is different for each pump because each impeller is balanced at the factory and some will vibrate more at different speeds. Both the D5's I have running at the moment are louder at setting 4 than they are at full speed though.

I have it going at full speed and it isn't bad at all. Spectre pro fans are about the same noise level at mid rpms.
