Thats what I got from reading too how ever most of the reviews and writeups I read are simple setups and get reasonable temps (they compare the kit to the NH-D14 an awful lot). I dont think the pump has enough head room to cool a OC'd i5/i7 and SLI'd cards WELL
Which pump do you think has enough head room, this is my first time trying water cooling and i dont want to mess it up

Being that you want to be on the safe side (which is reasonable)... go with the MCP655 (vario speed) and couple that to the XSPC D5 dual bay res. "If" you still feel uneasy about that pumps capacity... do a dual pump loop or maybe even 2 independent loops. Put the vid cards in one loop independent of the other components on a different loop... But I am certain that one of these pumps will do good for what you intend.

The good thing about a custom loop is that you can always mix, match, add or take away as you see fit. Experience is always better than a review. Reviews are "guides" only in my book since they are basically an opinion expressed by the reviewer. Nothing better than the good old school of hard knocks.

I know of a member here (won't mention his nick name - he will chime in soon enough) who uses the kit pump/res and he had a total of something like 5 blocks/rads and such working perfectly fine. Could he gain a degree or two more by switching pumps and such? Probably but to date... his loop is doing great and for the investment of an upgrade, I bet he decided it wasn't worth it. So, at the end of the day... it's all up to builder what he/she wishes to do and what path they'd like to follow.

I think you should go with at least 1 MCP655 pump...

My loop runs the rasa kit with full cover mobo block from koolance and 1 full cover 6870 eith 2 rads (1xrs360 and 1xek240)

The flow rate is still at its best..cooling temps are great and no decrease on performace..

So thats 3 blocks and 2 rads and pump still perform great..

The pump it self can not be called weak..it can handle 4 block for sure 5 block is where its goin to be where u goin to say it will need a pump..but for 1 guy here he runs 5 blocks with no problem at all..

I wish i'd put a flow meter somewhere in my loop now. All i have to go on is the bay res, and it's hard to see when the inlet and outlet tubes are fully submerged.

There are some in-line meters but personally, for the price, I keep an eye on my res. Also, I have my MCP655 pump plugged into the CPU fan header. I look at the CPU fan speed and when I see 4200 RPM, I know the pump is up and functioning fine. Unfortunately you can't do that with the Rasa pump. What I did with the res was siphon out a bit of water out of the res... not much... just enough to easily see movement when I take a look at it.

Anybody else using the Feser 1 liquid with theirs? I was going to go distilled with the kill coils and red tubing but decided to go with the Feser red liquid instead. Friend of mine swears by the stuff and has been using it for a while so I guess I'll see. Anybody have any horror stories with it? Shouldn't be too late to ask frozencpu to stuff the feser liquid before they ship it...
It's a little late to stop the shipping of the Feser liquid, but anybody?

I'm curious at what you mean by "just fine." What temps would I be approximately seeing?

I don't think many people run the Feser coolant in here. Some people reported issues with the dye causing build up in their blocks, so you may want to keep any eye on that. I've only ran Koolance coolant way back in the days, but I've never ran Feser, so I can't say much on the subject other than that.
