Help with CPU block

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello guys, this is my first time, Im Mauricio 17 years old from Chile

So, I dont speak english that good so excuse me if I make a typing mistake

A friend of mine is selling his old watercooling setup wich consist of:

CPU Block: Koolance CPU-350
Pump: TT p500 (i know its not of the best ones, but im getting this for like $10)
Res: a TT reservoir
Rad: a 240mm rad swiftech with reservoir incluided

I'll be using 3/8 as tubing size

So my question is, will the p500 pump be enough to push that much water to make the CPU block work well? I've seen a video review on youtube wich says that this block is really "Flow-Restrictive", so, looking at the pump, something smells bad, even tough I dont know that much of Water cooling, just the basics.

btw, as I dont have that much money ill be upgrading the wc setup progressivelly, the first thing ill upgrade will be the pump IMO

So, that is

Cheers, Mauricio =)

PS: Sorry if I made any typing mistake, but I certainly dont like translaters lol
PS2: Im getting this setup by around $140, so its very cheap and im sure it'll perform better than a H70

For $10 bucks you can't really complain. If you find you are getting higher temps then you would like. Then buy a better pump later and add it to the loop. 3/8 inch tubing is fine and you wouldn't notice a night and day difference going to a 1/2 inch tubing either. Good luck on the water loop and have fun.

Forgot to ask what cpu was you going to cool with this loop? You can fill out your pc specs here.

There I uploaded my specs

Ya as far as i've seen, the fidd between 3/8 and 1/2 is around 0.25°C LOL because the flow speed in a 3/8 steup is higher and that

I'll be using this with a AMD x4 @ 3.6, its not like I game that much, but I like cool and silent PCs, when I get a new pump (mcp655 i guess) i'll be adding the graphic card to the loop
