Swiftech MCP655 pump help

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

Just wondering if my Swiftech MCP655 pump will be enough for this many loops? 655-->GTX240-->D-Tek Fusion-->eK FB-->GTX360-->5.25 Bay Res-->655

The BlackIce GTX360 will be on top of my new case and the GTX240 will be standing up right.

Thanks for your 2 cents..

Yeah it should work OK...I would just use the 360 myself it should cool well enough and you would have a lot less restriction....You can always cut the 240 in later if you wanted to....Use a shroud on them...This is a test I did with and with-out shrouds on a GTX 480, a shroud will help quite a bit on the GTX...


...Part 1-Temp's With and With-Out Shrouds

Well I plan on adding a 2nd eK FB for the 8800GTX in SLI. So the eK full blocks alone should pump some heat out? But the GTX360 should cool them I would think? Then after the GTX360>RES>655>GTX240 would keep my e6850 cool?

FYI: Ira I have a A8N32-SLI, and a eVGA 7900GTO for sale.

Just guessing but it should... I would put the 360 in front of the CPU though get that coolant as low as it will go before the CPU..GPU can run hotter anyway from what I've heard, I don't WC anything but my CPU...
.
Thanks for the offer but I will be going Intel my next upgrade, unless AMD pulls out of their nosedive soon...


I'm putting together a 437W Pelt rig right now...And possibly a AC chiller if I can figure out a way to get it in the house and in here with-out my Wife knowing it...She almost blew a gasket the other day when I told her I was going to convert a 7500 BTU window AC into a chiller for my comp...Unfortunately she realizes how much juice that will use....

LOL I am a single guy now. I see my brother going thru the same thing. Buying stuff hiding it from his wife as well. A Grown 6'2 220 pound man running away from a 4'11 90 pound women. LOL I know I will be there some day that's why I am going crazy on my new build before I am told when to go to bed and go to the bathroom and to take a shower.

The only reason why I am so picky is this build I am trying to build a remake of a VoodooPC super super clean with all internal water cooling parts. My new Lian Li Pc-s80 case is beeing powder coated as we speak. Pix comming soon.

I was confused with the Swiftech version of the 655 vs the other version of it. I guess it does not matter.

Wow..sorry for the off topic post but your brother must make a pretty big contrast to his wife. Definitely want to see those pix though.

Here is a nibble on my case color with the double and triple rad grills.
Just got my polish stuff to polish out the inside of the case. Trying to figure out what fans to use though?

We've been married over 25 years and she still scares me......The Liang D-5 and Swifty 655 are the same pump...Swifty has come out with a model 655-B which doesn't have the 5 speed rheo on it and its a little cheaper..I'd stay away from it Martin did some testing with it and its only as powerful as the 655 w/rheo on setting 4, 5 is the highest so the B model is giving up quite a bit of power....

EDIT: I like that Rebel orange, I had a '71 El Camino painted that color..The rad-grill is excellent also...

Not sure what the EK FB is, but assuming it's about equivalent to the EK FC8800,

Using my estimator you're going to be pushing about 1.13 GPM (assuning 7' if 1/2" tubing) with a standard D5 or MCP655 vario, so you wouldn't be getting the best flow, but from what I've seen on the HWlabs GTS and possibly the GTX rads, they hold a their performance a little better at lower flows (They have more restrictive tubes).

The same setup with a ddc 3.2 with top like this:
http://www.petrastechshop.com/laddcwpeddto.html
would do just a little better at 1.17 GPM so that's a fairly restrictive loop.

Or if you put two D5's in series, you would get around 1.6GPM, so running two in series would provide really good gains with that particular setup (40% is more than typical).

Anyway, you'll probably be ok, but that pump is going to be working at it. Definately make sure you get the more expensive variable variety, the Basic model is stuck at setting 4 and you'll need all the pumping power you can get. I'm still trying to make sense of what a good flow rate is, I know if you keep it above 1.5 GPM, you're doing well, but there's alot of factors involved when you start going below that and I think in general you're not going to see HUGE losses until you start going below 1 GPM. But then Ira pointed out there have been some documented cases where higher flow rates helped overclocks even if temperatures were not improved and the thought is reduction of microscopic hot spots.

Wow that little Laing DDC 3.2 is stronger then my 655 I was thinking of buying it with the new top. I will be using 1/2 tubing with a D-tek. I cleaned out my D-tek couple days ago of all the slag. I am putting on the D-tek on my eVGA board as we speak.
