Agreed, they are excellent pumps. But, the H220X uses and MCP30, which is an MCP50X based pump. The MCP35X is a Laing DDC based pump, and is not compatible (in terms of direct replacement) with the MCP50X or MCP30
The swiftech rep that sent me an email about six years ago must've accidentally told me the wrong pump then when I asked thanks for the clarification....iirc the max speed of the mcp30 is slightly lower than the mcp50x but has shown zero effects in my loop but I also have a pretty non restrictive loop not sure that that would matter but I've only had two loops so far and both I chose non restrictive blocks and fairly non restrictive rads.....

If I showed pictures of my loop right now youde have me banned from ocn it's way overdue a cleaning...I just dont have the time working 7 days a week and having a 2 year old...

Just out of curiosity, if I were to purchase a reservoir + pump (D5) combo and add it to my loop, would I run into trouble mixing H360X3 weaker pump with the D5?
Wouldn’t the weaker H360X3 pump struggle to keep up with the D5?

You can run two pumps that are not alike with no issues.

I ask because I expanded to two 360mm rads, a 200mm reservoir and in the future planning to water cool the GPU and add in another 360 rad. How do I figure out if I’m reaching the headroom or surpassing the capabilities of Drive X3 pump?

Thanks
I had the exact specs, but can't find them. I do recall the head pressure being ~2.2m, and flow rate being over 1gpm. Essentially the pump was designed to comfortably handle two blocks and two rads. Anything beyond that you need to slook at adding an additional pump, or simply replacing the stock pump with the MCP50X (which is a direct replacement). The MCP50X has similar performance to an MCP35X DDC (https://thermalbench.com/2015/01/05/...mcp50x-pump/4/), but is quieter and does not have the DDC's heat issues.

Hokies83 Just waiting on my QDC to get here.
Looks clean to me 🙂

3 360’rads so I can run all fans at minimum speed, that’s the only reason.
