Planed Setup

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hey all i going to be setting up a 2600k i7 very soon and i have came up with this loop all in 10mm tubing



will the pump be able to pump all the water around through both reservoirs without loosing much pressure
and just any pointers you might have for me too improve this loop (sense this will be my first watercooled rig)


cheers all have a good one

Maximum Head Pressure at 1.0 GPM (Ideal watercooling flow rate)

MCP35X Stock: 6.52 PSI
MCP355 + XSPC Top: 6.14 PSI
MCP655 + EK Top: 4.95 PSI
MCP655 Stock: 4.72 PSI
MCP355 Stock: 4.63 PSI
MCP350 + Top: 4.48 PSI
DCP 4.0 Stock: 3.83 PSI
XSPC 750: 3.59 PSI
655-B + EK Top: 3.38 PSI
MCP350: 3.25 PSI
655-B Stock: 3.23 PSI
DCP 2.6: 2.55 PSI
DCP 2.2: 2.08 PSI

The head pressure of a pump determines how many blocks it can push through, with more psi = more blocks. The 355 is actually a more powerful pump than the 655, and it consumes less power. However, it overheats if you cover the bottom and is slightly louder than the 655.

For reference, here are the average restriction levels for your components:

Radiator - 0.2 PSI (Size is not a factor, a 120 radiator restricts about the same as 480)
CPU block - 1.25 PSI
GPU Block - 0.9 PSI
Reservoir - <0.05 PSI
Tubing and fittings - <0.2 PSI for the whole loop

To get a sense of what pump you need simply add up the restriction of all of your components and get the cheapest pump that has at least that PSI.

If you run the GPU blocks in a parallel configuration you divide the restriction by the number of blocks, (for example 2 GPU blocks in parallel - 0.9 PSI /2 = 0.45 PSI total restriction).

Yeah, the MCP655/355 will be fine for that. I'm partial to the 355, but other people like the 655 just the same.
Also, it looks good. IF POSSIBLE, try not to use stealth rads. They offer lower performance.

If you're going with two rads, cpu block, and two gpu blocks, you're going to want the mcp35x or the mcp355 with an aftermarket top (xspc or ek top).
