I donÂ´t know where you are getting this from but it is just untrue.
A normal loop with GPU,CPU,1x360 ,1x480 ..needs an approximate 60 l/h to reach their full cooling potential ...anything above that might contribute <0.5 degrees to the cooling performance...in most cases the gain is not even measurable.
It will not matter if a block has 1.25 or 1.59GPM because when you add radiators and other blocks to the loop the flowrate is going to decrease.
If you are using a MCP 355 or D5 does not make a difference at the end of the day because the difference is so marginal that temps wonÂ´t benefit from it.Also as long as the flowrate is above 60 - 100 l/h there wonÂ´t be any problems anyway.And please do me a favour ...stop calling the D5 a weak pump.
It is a very powerful pump that may be specified for non or slightly restrictive loops.But that fact still does not impact on performance if used in somewhat restrictive loops like mine.
What you are also exaggerating in my oppinion is the restriction of the Kryos.It is not a highflow block.Sure it might be a little more restrictive than the others but that amount is not mentionable.
It would not matter if I chose EK Supreme or XSPC Rasa ..CPU cooling performance would be worse due to the superiority of the Kryos in cooling and flowrate would increase in numbers that would again not be worth mentioning.
Lastly I will be using the EK D5 Top anyways and that will increase the overall pefromance of the pump vastly.Then I should not need to worry about any of thisEdited by Kung Pow - 2/21/11 at 9:41pm
