My System Specs


Why 3 Pumps, Why not! My old setup had 2 mcp35x, one stand along and one built into the rad.

When picking out parts i was going to stick with 2 pumps but then the dual version came out and it was just a better deal to get the x2 with pumps than the x2 with only a single pump.

The other reason is noise, 3 pumps gives me a lot of room to control how i want the system to run. I am using Aquacomputer 5 Pro to control the system and with 3 pumps i can run them at min (1300 rpm) and get 0.5 GPM or all the way up to 4400 rpm and get 2.4 GPM. So i can go from dead slient to ejt taking off depending if im just pissing around or going for a new benchmark highscore.

Plus i think it looks pretty sweet.

For the pumps they do need to be primed with the case tilted for the first time but i have never had a setup that was just pore water in and good to go. Actuall this was the easiest time i have even had priming a system.

As posted above, the res has a clear tube in it so you can use the top ports as inlets.

The setup looks like this

I would love to have the 120 rad after the cpu but this setup gave me the best flow for tubing only needing 3 45 deg connectors.

Heres some more pics i took with a little more time than the last ones.
