Default dual pump question again

Someone posted a dual pump top for the ddc pumps and of course xspc makes a dual resi setup for the d5's. Those setups are serial and from what I gather you'll only get about a 50% increase. What I'm wondering is wouldn't dual pumps work better in a manifold situation?

You take 2 pumps run them into a manifold and then into a single line loop and back into either a manifold or resi with dual outlets. I dunno. It's something i've debated trying and haven't seen anyone here do anything like that. Seems to me you'd get better flow rates and pressure. It's how we plumb our houses so it kinda makes sense in a WC situation too.

cheers

A good read for you.

Multi Pump Setups Parallel vs. Series martinsliquidlab.org

I'm going dual pump in serie after asking questions and reading that link above.

Just go in serie, no need for a manifold. Do it KISS!!

Grab one of these dual tops from EK. They make them for series or parallel.

No problem. If you ever do that manifold, let us know the results.

Couple major problems with that review / test this guy did.

1/ he absolutely needs to be using a manifold this is basic plumbing. Y adapters don't work at all for this test if it did we'd see them in housing all the time. This doesn't work.

2/ he needs to reduce the output lines to increase the pressure this means from the pump he uses 1/2 inch tubing and reduces to 3/8's as outputs from the manifold. There has to be a reduction to increase the pressure which he talks about.

3/ the goal is to have dual loops one resi with one rad via the manifolds. I could cool the ram on a seperate loop off the manifold and cool vid/cpu on it's own loop. I'm thinking it's just gonna have to be dual loops in the end. ;-)

Guess I'll have to test it for myself at some point.

I agree with your drawing but i wanna play with the pump setup a little. :-)

Lose some serious flow rate off the manifold the trick is adusting for it.

If you visited Martin's site, did your read up on the pumps? He did a nice job on the pumps I have for others. Putting two in series would make a sweet loop and have minimal heat dump into the loop and run cooler.
