Default XSPC Dual bay + single Laing D5 Strong

Hi,

I recently bought on of the custom raystorm kits from Daz. I decided to go with the Laing D5 Strong. Only been a bit over a month and I want to add another rad... Heh!

So my question is will this pump be sufficient for 360 + 240 rads?

Thanks

Heh... are we going to have the flowrate discussion all over again??? ;)

That said... I'm pretty sure you'll be fine.

FYI the D5 Strong is actually less powerful than a D5 vario unless you are running it above 12V. Now saying they radiators for most part had little restriction. You can add one for little affect to flow rate.

Couple 780 blocks and another rad with new tubing and fittings... Yup, people weren't kidding when they said you could easily hit $500+.

Yep 500+ is easy to hit lol. Even after I got my 2 x 680 blocks and my CPU block for considerably less than retail - the rest of the bits are still going to put me over 500 lol. But worth it in the end.

Honestly $500 can be hit just in "none core equipment" accessories like tubing, lighting, sensors, but especially Fittings...

I agree, $500 is nothing to spend for a BASIC system with a couple of blocks. Heck, I've gone way over $1000 before for a pretty off the hook system that was used for massive cooling. I could see easily spending upwards of $1300 or $1500 for a major system that I wanted to not only cool well, but look good too.
