That's what I'm running x 2. Even added small UV LEDs to the backplates so they look even swankier.

Beware that 3/4 OD compression fittings won't work with the backplate side, though. You'll need 5/8 OD.

For reference,

At 1 GPM

EK: 0.87 PSI Drop
DD: 0.29 PSI Drop
Aquacomputer GFX: 3.02 PSI Drop

As you can see, the DD simply blows away it's competition restriction wise.


Top notch, great vrm performance is exactly what I was looking for.

I have the rasa kit too, so the lower the restriction the better.

Thanks a mill, on that. Is there any difference between the nickel and the copper versions, aside from the nickel being about $15 more? Can I mix nickel with copper, because everything else I have is copper...

No performance difference between the versions, and feel free to mix nickel and copper in your loop. The metal you don't want is aluminum, as it will cause galvanic corrosion with your copper/nickel/brass parts.

The nickel plating just prevents the copper from oxidizing. While copper oxidization does not affect performance it does turn your block an ugly green color after a while.
