Default Would this pump work?

I would like to use this X2O 750 Dual 5.25in. Bay Reservoir Pump res and pump combo to cool my 5850. The rad I will be using is a MCR320 from swiftech and the gpu block is the EK-FC5850 full cover nickel-plexi block. I will be at some point be adding a second 5850 and would like to know if this pump would work.

It should work fine with one or two 5850's, I'm not a big fan of the built in pump/res personally but others who use it say it works pretty good.

No worries, it'll be fine. If you had a fairly restrictive CPU block in there as well, the flow rates might be a little weak, but EK's blocks are pretty good these days for restriction.

Thanks this is what I was wanting to hear. I did think it would not be a problem but I still wanted to run it by people who have more experience in water cooling.

Voltage: 12V (4pin) PWM type pump, does your MB support 4 pin CPU fan header to get the best out of pump

spec: 750 lph = 198.15 gph
head: 1.8m = 5.9 ft

I believe the pump is powered off a 4 pin molex not a 4 pin fan header.

correct molex thought was pwm "The pump is the same great 750lph low noise pump used in the previous model with improved electronics to increase long term reliability." XSPC didn't post electric spec's for this pump for $3 more go with D5

That is just for the res I would have to buy the pump adding another $60 so I went with the X20 750 because it comes with a pump.
