My System Specs

Default Will One Pump Suffice?

Hi, I'm looking to run a Swiftech XT CPU block, EK Northbridge block, a universal GPU block (AquaXtreme MP-1), and three Swiftech triple rads. Do you think a single Swiftech MCP655 will suffice? It's the one with a speed adjuster, if that makes any difference.

Interesting question. the three rads bit is what IDK. otherwise I would vote no issues.

what is preventing you from going dual pump for safety sake?

A combination of cost and space constraints. Is three rads too many? I suppose I could just use two. I just have three lying around so I thought I'd use them all.

One pump is fine, most people with two pumps could easily use one, but choose two for redundancy, I am cheap/poor so I run a single pump, and just set my motherboard to shut down if my CPU reaches 65C.
