Max pressure for waterblocks

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am working on my chiller build, and I have a bilge pump with 8 feet of head. It has a 3/4 fitting, as does the chiller. If I put a 3/4-1/2 reducer inline and hook up my 7/16 tubing, will I push too much pressure for my waterblocks? I am going to be running though a raystorm and an EK motherboard block.

I'm not sure about the seals in the block itself, but I'd be a bit concerned about the tubing and fittings. What type of fittings do you plan on using for this?


edit:
so, after a bit I found this, which gives an approximation of the pump in psi http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/pump-head-pressure-d_663.html

but I can't find any info on the psi rating of the block.

however, a bit of research tells me that a mcp355 provides approximately 20ft of head, according to swiftech, and handles up to 22psi http://www.swiftech.com/mcp35512vdcpump.aspx

I think it should be fine, but I'd test it for a while outside of a system first , as with all setups.
