Question about block pressure drop
I was wondering if someone could help me out with head pressure.
I have the photon 270 D5 vario, which is apparently 3.7 max pressure.
Here are the parts I purchased and their restriction:
EK Velocity - .72/1gpm
Ek Vecter - .82/gpm? (previous gen fc-1080 block is .82)
Nemesis 420 GTS - 1.0? (360 gts is .91)
Maximus XI Formula with Crosschill waterblock - ?
I'm also thinking about adding the Alphacool st30 280 so I can have more silent operation. Pressure drop for that it .30 / 1gpm.
Three things I'm not sure of:
1. Is this too much restriction for my pump? I don't want to be running it at 5, was hoping for 3 or 4.
2. Do I need the extra 280 for silent operation? I will be overclocking my CPU, but not my GPU.
3. What is the restriction of the Crosschill 3 waterblock on the Maximus XI formula board? I can't find any information about it anywhere.
Thanks for your help!
