Bitspower Anti-Cyclone or Bitspower Anti-Flow Fitting - Page 2

Here is a little guide to calculate the restriction. When he says for the entire loop, it means for the entire loop. You may see a 50% difference in reality per component, but in the end the final restriction should be about the same as calculated. Really you only should only be concerned if your restriction is getting near your pumps max head pressure, which really only happens when you have 3 or more water blocks in series. At that point, you need a stronger pump or dual pumps, which it looks like our doing anyways. thumb.gif

Guys, I think I am having slow flow rate problem too, but I dont know if I should remove the anti cyclone, the flow rate is significant slower than my ek xres csq.

If you only changed out the reservoir keeping everything the same then that is a bit unexpected. I just took my fitting out recently when I changed out the water and still have no cyclones. Only negative was the bubbles were a bit harder to remove. I would remove it and see if cyclones form, but I doubt there will be much change in flow rate (depending on the restricting of your system and pump).

I don't know if I should rma this back. But seems a bit strange to me as well, maybe there are something wrong with the pump top?

Do you have the same pump/setup as before except the res?

Hi, yes everything the same except D5 upgrade kit

I would take out the anti-cyclone fitting and see if the flow rate changes significantly. The anti-cyclone fitting will have a stronger affect on smaller stems (1 block and 1-2 rads). Otherwise try connecting the res to pump directly if you have the right fittings to see whether its the upgrade kit or something else.

Are you the poster from another thread that changed from an EK X-res to a Bitspower D5 top and res?

That is a crazy thing to do ... but anyhoo, what makes you think there is now a flow problem?
If by chance it is the fact that there is now less obvious trublence and fluid exchange in the res section there is a simple reason for that that does not actually involve loop flow rate.
The Bitspower D5 top and upgrade kit res works differently to the X-Res if you have the inlet and outlet connected to the base. The X-res sends all flow through the res no matter where you have the inlet setup. Its fundamental to the design and is the way all pump-res should work. The BP D5 top and upgrade res does not send flow through the res but rather straight back to the pump. Unless you use a top inlet then there will seem to be very little turbulence and fluid exchange in the res.

yes, the bitspower stock vortex stop in the bottom of the reservoir is restrictive, it has about the same effect as adding a radiator to the loop.

these are the upgrades that I made to the reservoir.
I replaced the vortex stop with a bubble down and a second aqua pipe for two inlet lines.
the top flow rate of the reservoir is with these upgrades, Is 11.9LPM.

http://imgur.com/Ifq545t,Pon7kZr


a stock reservoir has a 5.7LPM flow rate

http://imgur.com/DXioCNL,r6BGba1,GNJhifi




this is a loop with a single radiator on it, it shows that the loop flow rate is at 5.9LPM, to me, the stock resivior is a little more restrictive than a radiator.

as far as loop flow restriction in general this is what I ran into with my own loop.
