My H60 exploded, the system was off i was playing battlefield 4 on the ps3, the noise was so loud i noticed straight away, the force of the plastic cover popping off the pump was loud.......

Sorry, couldn't resist smile.gif. My guess is his pump stopped and CPU heated the water, everything expanded and boom..... not buying the 'system was off" thing tho.

I think it's less of a concern from normal working pressures than it is from thermal expansion. I'm guessing that's why the the Aqualis folks saw fit to produce this bugger

The most important reason to think about pressure during design is that pressure impacts flow rate.... as pressure increases, the design point slides up the curve to left and flow decreases..... granted not a concern in most simple loops but as loop grows of if ya going for the "straight look" with acrylic tube and lotsa fittings ... it's something a user might wanna consider.

Just for "sheetz and giggles" .... It find it "enlightening" to think about it tho in some respects .... using a 35x2, ya *can* hit 12 psi at full speed (I can't see going over 50% where max pressure in a restrictive loop would be 8 psi according to martin)...... now look at ya GPU full cover WB .... it's still on there:) .... think about how many square inches ya GPU WB chamber is and how much force those screws are holding down smile.gif I'm impressed. Reminds me my wow like response to the TIM instructions saying they recommended 70 pounds of clamping force.
