One pump or two?
 
I'm redoing my whole system and wondering if I should invest in another single pump or get another mcp355 to run my setup.
It consists of the following.

XSPC RS320 triple rad
XSPC Rs240 dual rad
2 X Enzotech VGA-IB
XSPC Rasa or Ek Supreme HF
Bitspower Z 250 Res
MCP355 with or without XSPC restop
And a Coolit Elite

I also have a XSPC 750 Pump and res that I could use to make a seperate loop if needed.

Thanks in advance guys

I always run 2 pumps in every loop for redundancy...

I try to do the same. And if you go w/ MCP35x you could always run them at slower speeds to make them nearly inaudible.

Do you run 2 pumps in series? or parallel?

Always in series. Parallel pumps offer almost no benefit.

I'm talking circuit terms.

SO, to be clear, do 1 pump pushing it to the 2nd pump?

Multi Pump Setups – Parallel vs. Series martinsliquidlab.org

You always want the pumps to be in series vs parallel.

Check out the like Martin did for the DDC-1T pumps (MCP350) with the EK performance top. The flow rates are good and will compliment any RASA 750 pump in series. And like Martin's page on the review says, I have a few dozen of these pumps available.
