Great job of getting all that information squared away as well as addressed by the manufacturer.

A quick little question concerning the two ....

Loop #1 - CPU only with ( hopefully ) a new Stinger V8 ( presently a Fuzion )

Loop #2 - 8800GTX, NB, SB, and Mosfets

Both loops have a GTX480 rad in the loop.

I have one MCP-655 and one MCP-655b

Which pump would best serve each loop ?

( I'm betting on the variable needing to be used on the more restrictive Loop #2. )

I have a similar setup actually, and I chose to put the basic model on the GPU loop even though it's more restrictive.

My thought is the 8800 is designed to load into the 80s where the CPU is much more sensetive and would be shutting down. Mosfets are also designed to have a Tjunction of something like 125C, so they like it toasty too. The NB and SB are probably closer to the CPU need, but it's not very hard with water to keep them much cooler than the stock sinks.

So either way would be ok, the variable on #2 would probably be a better balance of making use of the pumping power, but because the CPU is has greater needs to keep cool, I still would choose to give it the better pump.

I'm not sure how restrictive mosfet blocks are, but I'd guess with #2 and the B model you'd still run in the 1.3-1.4 GPM range with is fine.

You mean Swiftech doesn't test their own pumps? That makes me feel real good about the rest of their products......I'm with Martin Joe use the best for CPU, the rest isn't as critical....

Thanks to both of you !

I have no ambitions to OC the 8800GTX, however, the CPU is most definitely getting OC'd. I'm holding out for the QX6950 with the 45nm process ... hope to see a nice cool 4.0Ghz on all 4 without breaking a sweat.
