My System Specs

Default

No real need for a second pump in that setup. Unless that ram block is extremely restrictive you should have pretty good flow.The effect of flowrate on temperature is not a linear function and once you are past a certain point (which is dependent on your hardware, but seems to be ~1gpm) there is very little gain to be had. There is some room for improvement as more turbulent flow is more efficient at heat transfer etc. , but it's not that much. IE: I run variable speed D5s and my max temp is only 2* lower on setting 5 than on setting 1 (prime95 + furmark 1 hour).
