Smile Pump: Danger Den DDCPX-PRO Question

I am looking at this pump for a lower cost alternative to the MCP655. I was wondering if it'll handle a restrictive GPU block + less restrictive CPU block. I would like to use the D-Tek GFX because I will upgrade my video card in the future, then this gives me the option of buying a uni-sink compatible with it for a 280. I just, like the look of the DD pump, and the price is right. In my loop I will have

3/4 OD 1/2 ID Primoflex tubing

1 as of yet undecided LGA775 waterblock

1x D-tek Customs Fusion GFX v2 waterblock

1x Resevoir

1x DD pump

Thanks.

It's a pretty decent pump, bests the DDC3.2 or comes close to it:
Danger Den CPX-Pro Pump Review

Martin shows 0.89GPM with a FuZion (4.4mm nozzle) and FuZion GFX and a 480GTX rad. Bit on the low side but that's with both fairly restrictive blocks.

You could probably get better flowrates if you used the Swiftech GPU block and a low-restriction CPU block, but the choice is yours.

That pump is looking really promising, and the Laing pumps have suddenly become a lot more expensive, even without the almost-necessary aftermarket tops. Furthermore, even if the pump a little less powerful than a topped DDC 3.2, it also has only about half the heat dump. I'd go for it, personally.

The Fuzion GFX V2 is also noticeably less restrictive than the original, owing to the redesign. By D-Tek's own charts, the pressure drop is only about half what the original was.

I just ordered this pump. Seems like a good deal for 60.00 with barbs included.
Right now i have a terribly underpowered unit
4.5 ft/head
I'm expecting a huge improvement and some future expandability!

hahaha yea I was looking at that.. seems a lot more trustworthy than RFD. I have a bunch of stuff to sell too but I am kinda greedy so I might throw it to the ebay noobs as usual.
