penguin 1140 pump ?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well since the summer is pretty much here and my phase is getting really warm to run allday i am going to get back into some water cooling for a while. I am looking at doing a rather cheap setup with a bunch of my old parts one of which is a brand new penguin 1140 pump.

This pump is rated at 300gpm which seems pretty good, its fully submersible and is pretty small, i am going to build a res/enclosure for the pump so it will basically be in a box full of water with attachment lines for fluid flow. link too the pump

the thing is though i cant find what the head is on the pump, i have searched google for some time and cant find it anywhere. Help would be much appreciated and any info if someone has tried this pump before. It is very quiet when running (tried it int he sinc) and i think it will be able to handle a single loop but i wanna get a few opinions.

Worst case senerio i just use it for a gpu/NB loop or something, oh and it will more then liekly be paired either with a single 120mm rad or a bonny rad not sure yet. (have both of them laying around)
thanks

If you have the pump, hook up a huge long piece of tubing to it (if you have it) and see how far it will push some water. If it's not very far, you will know that it's like most other fish-tank pumps, they have little to no head.

ok thats a good idea ill give it a try and see what it does, then you can basically measure the head by how far it will push right, granted with decent pressure and all that

I think max head is the point at which (with 0 resistance) the pressure is cut significantly. I could be wrong though.

So, you could possibly see it push water through 10+ ft of tubing, but the pressure will probably be almost nothing past 4ft. Meaning the head is <=4ft

Max head is how far the pump will push the water vertically.

I thought of something last night also, if i tighten up the tolerances around the pump blades would that increase performance. I am pretty sure on these pumps if you take that space that is about 1/4" if not more down to 1/16" or so that it would help immensly.

The only thing i dont know is whether or not it will burn up the motor having a extra load on it

Yeah that would be the thing it could easily overheat it...Why not try it as is..Then if your not getting good temp's try to tighten it up some...
