Not quite sure what you're referring to, Chibi. Unless you're saying that a lack of load on the two pumps will cause premature wear? But if that 90L/hr is correct, I would consider this system to be definitely under-pumped. 90L/hr = 1.5L/min = less than 0.5 G/min, which is a less than ideal place to be on the heat-exchange curves for most waterblocks and radiators. Thermaltake's website doesn't give any information on the pump's head pressure, but actual system flow with a block and a rad is probably even slower. So at that point, I think there might actually be some tangible cooling benefit to running the second pump.
