2 pumps on a loop question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have two pumps and a few reservoirs and two rads but I think my 800D is too crowded when I have separate loops for CPU/GPU. I think I want to ditch my EK Multioption 250 and just run one loop using my D5 w/ EK X-TOP and the XSPC X2O 750 dual bay res/pump.

I'm worried about one of the pumps overpowering the other one and damaging the less powerful one though. Is it okay to use two pumps on the same loop if they aren't identical? Thanks.

You shouldn't need to use two pumps in one loop. That pump will be more than enough for your loop

Yeah, there is no reason to use more than a singular pump for a singular loop such as that.

Another person said the same thing. But for 2 radiators, an apogee xt, and two ek gtx470 blocks?

^ One pump is still fine. Not to mention if you cut it down to one pump you'll solve your crowded case problem.

D5 should handle the loop. I have a DDC 3.2 that will be handling five blocks and two rads.
