Can I reverse the pump?

Hi All,

Question regarding the Alphacool Solo Lt.

I plumped up the system only to discover the native flow direction not the direction I need for the GPU block, can this be easily with a bios trick or connection mod?

Cheers

btw, a lot of gpu blocks work in either direction.

yeah I'd love to but but damn that's some work, pfft don't even have the spare tube

so when you say most work either direction, can I assume there is a way of controlling that direction on the bios?

centrifugal pumps go only one way, the motor is just like a hard drive or fan. there is no bios for it's flow direction - it is what it is.

what i meant is the gpu block; either connection/port can be in or out.

ahhh I follow you now.

Yeah I agree it can work, it appears the inlet cavity is smaller on the GPU block, assuming this is to speed up and evenly distribute the coolant over the die.

TBH probably just gonna roll the dice on this and see how it performs, can't even think about re-plumbing this thing right now.

Cheers for the response

i can't make out exactly who/what block that is but i'm sure you're fine. i have uniblock that is specific for in/out but i see folks running full cover block each way - sometimes different on each gpu running sli/xfire when not using a terminal block.

btw, nice job on that cramped case.
