I have a Cool it pure that I swaped out the stock 60 cfm fan for a 133 cfm ultra Kaze fan for.
and I think now what is holding me back is that the pump is a low flow pump
these is kit is only 1/4 line tubing, and I want to put in a pump that I can use later on,
can I put in like a 3/8" pump with sme kind of inlind reducer to go from like a 3/8" pump so my current 1/4 water bock and 1/4" radiator will work?
if so what ones do you guys recommend?

Thanks

its probably the radiator thats holding you back... i recommend getting both, so you can add a second rad yet increase flow. a Laing DDC3.2(AKA Swiftech MCP355) with aftermarket top will allow you to use 1/4" fittings, for rad i would add a swiftech MRC120 or 220, depending on the amount of room you've got

cool thats exactly what iwasthinking!

rep added!

the radiator does not get hot at all is that normal?

thats why i think its that the pump does not flow the water fast enough to get the radiator heat soaked

depends on where you touch the radiator i bet... try touching the tanks, the fins (carefully), but not the side, that doesnt touch any water.

anywhere lol it was pretty warm when i had the 80cfm fan but after i put the 133 it is not really that hot any more

even if i touch the inlet part of the radiator, maybe this radiator is bad at heat transfer idk

nah, if it isnt much hotter than the metal of your case then the rad is doing fine... still, gettin another one will allow you to bump up the voltage to around 1.6 or so... i got mine on 1.65 and have temps at 45C load, but i got to admit my rad is freaking huge.
