I'm a bit concerned that I may be reaching the limits of the PSU. I think my restriction problems are because of the XSPC water blocks and CPU block. But I also have a question about the Bitspower anti-cyclone fitting in the Rez. Are these things known to cause issues?
I never use the original fitting that comes with the BP res's, and I use a lot of BP res's..
Here's a copy paste from my M 'n M Twins build log about that.
Here's an important detail; The Bitspower reseviors and watertanks come stock with a tiny little excuse of an anti siphon fitting. 3 Tiny little frickin' holes for the pump(s) to suck all you flow thru.
*** were they thinking!
Always order the large size anti siphon fitting, that one large hole has several times the cross sectional area of the 3 tiny ones combined:
Another possible thing to consider, depending on what fittings you have throughout your build, is that some brands have a very small diameter bore in their rotaries and angles, about 5mm, and if you somehow have one in your loop, it hurts a lot.
I don't recall which brand it was, but I have some in my misc. box.
That's at least one reason why I try to stay with BP exclusively.
