What pump for a rad box setup?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I want to use a external rad setup and run the tubes from pc to rad box in closet and back to pc. Depending on my new floor plan 'moving in 2 weeks' the length of total tubing could be from 25-40 feet in length. So I need some suggestions on pump. Also anyone have any experience using Chinese pumps sold on Amazon/eBay? Due to my 3 week Corsair hydro h80i pump dying while I was benching made me decide to go back to custom loop. Also it will be a single gpu/cpu in sig and my htpc/server cpu. The server will be in the closet next to rad box.

The distance is less of a factor than height. If the rads are around the same height as the computer and the pumps dont need to pump the water uphill, you will be able to get away with much less pump power. I would recommend having the pump, res and rads in the closet. it would be more more simple that way, also keeping the noisy pumps in the closet.

Im inclined to think one pump would do the job, but two pumps in series in a dual pump top would be the route I go, just in case. I hate the DDC pump because its so loud, so I would recommend a D5...

Also, this reminds me of the whole room water cooling setup that Linus did on youtube, and he had nothing but headaches with it... bleeding it is almost impossible...

My rig will be most likely on my desk or on a file cabinet next to my desk so it will be about 30in off the ground. I was thinking of dual pumps or one stronger pump but I am not sure what my other option pump wise is. And I was actually watching that linus episode last night lol. Bleeding this setup would be no issue compared to that cluster they built.

Would a pump like this work? or better yet 2?
