I'm thinking of possibly making a single rad loop for my 920 in the future, but have absolutely no room for a pump. My idea was to get something like http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=22697 (I do have 1 open bay) I just don't know if 200l/hr is enough to cool it sufficiently. The description says "perfect for a second loop" which is why I'm questioning it for cpu usage. Also because my case uses 140mm fans (only has 140mm mounting holes) would it be better to get a Black Ice GTX 140mm or a Feser 120mm? I could rig the 120mm to fit if it would perform better. The 140mm is bigger but the 120 is thicker so again I'm a little confused.

I don't think that 200l/hr is enough, the water will get very hot. Get a 350l/hr at least. Get the black ice gtx 140 mm.

Flowrate means nothing without a head rating.

# Pump-performance: 200 lph
# Delivery head: 1.2m

Both ratings are pretty low. Even this cheap pump is rated better (not sure about quality):

# Raise: 1.9m
# Flux: 300L/H

Topfuel: I don't have room for a dual bay.

Duckie: Can you explain how delivery head effects it?

flowrate = maximum water flow with 0% resistence.
head = maximum water lift with 100% resistence.

It's the exact same concept with fans....
CFM = Flowrate
Static Pressure = Head

You need to know both plus the type of loop.

To clear things up this is what I want to do:

The red square is the radiator, and the orange overlay shows what would be seen through the side window.

Any opinions on http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=25341
It seems a little pricey but it will fit perfectly
