Water Cooling Equipment question

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello all-

Here is my equipment currently.

i have a P500 pump, that can do 500L an hour, which i believe translates into a head of 4-5ft. the issue here is that the pump has 3/8'' connectors.

all of my other gear has 3/8'' connectors also (vid card, cpu).

i want to get the http://www.petrastechshop.com/lad5smcin12v.html pump. it has a head of 11ft and can pump alot more than this pump can.

the only issue here is that this pump has a tube connection of 1/2''. it cant do 3/8.

is there any way to force this into a 3/8'' tube? or perhaps somone can recommend a better pump for the 3/8''?

thanks for the help.

You could put a 1/2 to 3/8 hose barb adapter on the tubing.

Here's kind of what I mean, but if you could find it in brass it would be better.

flow would suck if you used the adapters..

oh Must have missed something.. Why wouldnt you buy a pump with 3/8 barbs? Doesnt the ddc let you choose?

http://www.petrastechshop.com/laddc1mcin12.html i would get that.. more than enough flow for ya!! Good luck!

Change the barbs on the other gear, buy a pump with 3/8" barbs or use adapters.

Well, please tell us how you would get from 1/2" to 3/8" and back again when the pump has molded plastic I/O on it? You could try very hard to stretch the tubing I guess, but it might lose it's integrity with that big of a stretch.

what do you guys think of this? http://www.frozencpu.com/products/61...tl=g30c107s155

it comes with adapters to change it from 1/2 to 3/8. will this drastically reduce the lifetime/power of the pump?

thanks!

with a heat gun and some silicone grease you can get 3/8" tubing over a 1/2" fitting.

the fact that that pump has perfect seal type fittings, which are not tapered at all, will make it tougher, but it can be done

When the water is coming out of the pump it is being put under pressure anyways whether or not it is going to 1/2 or a 3/8 outlet. I don't think going to 3/8 is that big of a deal because it will have to be coming in at the same size as well. If you had a 1" inlet and a 1/4" outlet, then you might get some back pressure that could screw things up.

i dont know anything about your current pump, but the d5/swiftec/etc is a nice pump. since you will be dumping all of that heat into the loop, you may want to also consider a rad upgrade. and if you go that route, might as well take everything up to 1/2" tubing

you are best to do it all at once. overhaul the entire loop
