I have a quick question about cooling capacity on rads.
Lers say I make a case like the Corsair One where there are no fans on the rad. Only 1 exhausting out the top making negative pressure.
If I have one 280 radiator with all the air going through it, would actually adding a second...
I'm not sure if they are any better than the Noctua fans. Gentle typhoons were the best 120 fans for radiators until Noctua made the nf a12x25.
I only paid 4.60 usd per fan. And shipping was 35 usd for 3-6 days.
Taobao link to fans
I am hoping someone might be able to help me out. I am looking at the Nidec Servo fans on Taobao. 92mm
Trying to break down the product code to make sure they will work.
Z = variable speed
S = lock sensor (P would be the one that would be ideal)
If I have it correct, I...
I tried a simple test with the first prototype. Stock pump top vs the pump block reverse flow through an ek supremacy coldplate. Both attached to a 15ft length of tubing.
The stock pump top pushed water to just over 9.5 feet. The reverse flow through the coldplate just barely got 9 ft of...
Something to look at is the apogee drive ii. It is a reverse flow pump block. Though it has a pin based cold plate design vs the normal fins.
I am not sure if it should really cause any real difference though. You will have the same amount of water flowing through the coldplate either...
My design is reverse flow. I searched high and low for any testing. The best I found was people running their EK cpu blocks with the flow reversed due to wanting a cleaner layout for tubing. Anecdotal evidence at best. But they all seem to say 1 degree c at most.
I will be running an Optimus...
I definitely understand. I am building my block for this specific pump and I am running too tight of tolerance for production variances of the pumps.
The big plus for using the SPC is the smaller height added to your block and the one connection to a pump header on the MB.
One of my previous...
The impeller is 39.91mm and is 3.81mm tall.
Pump body is 17.75mm in height and 61.50 mm x 61.50 mm.
Pump top cavity is 7.19mm deep. It grows from 43.04mm to 45.20 mm in diameter. There is a ring around the pump inlet that is 1.77mm tall.
Hopefully this helps.
