PS- Are you using the cw611 to control which pump? PWM or voltage regulated pump?
I'm not using it to control the pump. I've got a D5 vario and it doesn't work well at all with voltage control (unless you break it open and wire it up to the other side of its built-in potentiometer), but really unless you have a DDC (aka MCP35x, PMP400) pump that's prone to overheating-related failures when run at full speed, there's little-to-no need/benefit to changing the flow rate on a pump anyway, especially with a D5 as it's pretty much set it to whatever speed works best for you and leave it there 24/7. The fastest speeds on a D5 often increase loop temps because it already has a high flow rate unless you have more than an average amount of restriction in your loop. At some point a faster flow rate has only negligible benefits by itself, but that benefit sometimes gets lost with the D5 as it adds more pump heat to the loop at faster speeds (D5s are water-cooled- dump heat into the loop. DDCs are air cooled - dump heat into your case). There's a couple recent threads on here where people are finding their loop temps run a few degrees cooler under load / when benchmarking at D5 vario speeds of '2' or '3' than they do with the pump set on '4' or '5'.
Anyway, if I was running a DDC I'd probably setup an automatic profile to keep the speed set low & only increase pump speed at a certain temp threshold, but with a D5 I see no reason to. I have my fans set in automatic profiles on three channels based on loop temps from 3 inline temp sensors. I also have a koolance flow sensor hooked to the CW611 so I can monitor LPH/GPH flow rates on one channel.Edited by Unicr0nhunter - 2/3/14 at 1:42am
