2 Pumps 1 Res ?? Update...Pics Added Temps Drastically Lowered.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
would it be safe to have a Ehiem 1048 and a Swiftech MCP655-B pulling from the same Swiftech MCRes ? i realize i would have to drill and tap a third hole for the second pump to pull from...the thing that worries me is that these pumps have different flow rates.

What are you hoping to achieve in doing so?

The D5 is a much stronger pump than the Ehien, it would probably burn it out if you ran them in series.

Sharing a reservoir totally voids the purpose of having dual loops though, the heat being dumped into the water from one loop will will be carried into the reservoir where it will also meet with water from the 2nd loop.

What case do you have?
EDIT: I see it's an Aura 3D.. post of picture of it of how it looks at the moment

would the Swiftech pump be enough for an Apogee GT and 2 Fuzion GFX blocks by itself ?

i have 2 pumps with 1 res setup

The only situation where this setup will work is when there are too many blocks for 1 pump alone. With 2 pumps, there will be two loops so that each pumps can handle a smaller number of blocks, both the loops will dump liquid into the same res and get its liquid from the same res too.

Also, one benefit with 2 loops sharing one res/fluid when running different size radiators is that you wont have to worry about splitting the load/blocks between the different radiators. Since the same fluid will be flowing through all the blocks and radiators at a some point in time, you get the benefit of all the blocks benefiting from all the rads.


the top tubing is my fill port
the left-top is the "in" for the blue loop (3/8 ID)
the left-mid is the "in" for the green loop (3/8 ID)
the left-bottom is the "out" for both loops (1/2 ID) this one get split into the two 3/8 ID feeding each loops

ok....here are the pics i promised...i added a Chevette heater core for my cpu in place of the P.O.S Thermaltake pump and rad i had on my cpu.i took the Eheim 1048 i had running my 2 Fuzion GFX gpu blocks and dedicated it solely to the cpu..i then bought a Swiftech MCP665-B pump and used it to pump my gpu's... WOW did my temps go down !!!! Cpu now idles at 27c and my gpu's idle at 39/46...before i did the upgrades , my cpu idled at 36c and my GTX's idled at 46/51c. i need to do some benches to heat them under load but i am more than pleased with the results..i now have two completely seperate loops in my system. please excuse the cable management as i have not had time yet to tidy things up.
