In Topic: how much stuff can a d5 push thru.

Was planning on an all metal block anyhow for that very reason, cracking around screws and inlet/outlets.And yes I'd rather buy a new pump/pumps then an ebay one.With as much as I'm potentially spending wouldn't want a cracked block or dead pump taking out a lot of expensive parts.It's a risk with water cooling to begin with, no need to stack the deck against me buying used.

Pricing stuff out now to see end cost of the loop.Prolly start off with one video card for now.See how the processing of it does with me doing all the stuff I will be doing with it and other parts at once.Did find a dual d5 pump that was hooked up in series though pretty cool pricey but cool.

Not sure how the first blocksin the loop would like all the head pressure though.

THX for the site info.Been researching the water cooling aspect for the last week or more looking at different setups manufactures  etc.I'm surprised no one else has chimed in.

 Basically what I've come up with is dual loops are not an absolute must  as long as you have enough flow thru the blocks and rads.Temps will stabilize to within a cpl/few degrees Celsius.  Depending on my CPU thermals/overclock a 240 rad to 360 rad would be ok to good.It also seems the same for the GPU.So 1 480 would do fine for a setup 24/7 non extreme OC. 2 480 rads even better if the water flow is enough plus it would add capacity for future equipment. But with the added cost of second pump and rad .Loop order doesn't  matter except for reservoir which needs to be before the pump so it's not run dry.Thick rads are more restrictive than thinner ones for the most part.Algaecide  or silver coil a must along with the use of distilled water.Dyes are to be avoided can gunk up blocks eventually.All copper no aluminum mixing of parts.Limit 90 degree bends if possible.Thick hoses are not better for extra cooling.Most manufactures use G1/4 threads.

That's a good sized reservoir nice looking..I'm planning on horizontal up top.Unless a different spot peaks my fancy at the time of pre-routing /fitting.Still need some more research before buying anything. Whats the top 3-4 manufactures for water cooling these days besides EKWB .If that 480 was cool to the touch then a push/pull fan setup would be a waste correct?
