Water Cooling question. Please help!
I am building a water cooling system for my computer, and I am wondering, for the pump, how much GPH(Gallons per hour) should it be? I see 250, 500, 1000, 2000, 3000...... What is ideal for a computer water cooling system?
come on... Someone's gotta know!

Congrats Scotter that sure is one sweet setup and I reckon your games will see a big improvement
More GPH doesn't make it any better. You could go to far. A pump that is to fast will pump the water so fast, it won't be able to pick up the heat. I would go around 200 GPH. Mine is 180 and works great. Check out these auctions on pumps. I bought mine real cheap and it works great.
Honest to goodness, if you build it properly you need only about 1-2 GPM.
It actually depends on how quickly/much you can cool your water...
Pump-Shumph, I agree with the Cookie Monster, this rate of flow is not necessary. Even Nascar motors have restrictors in the thermostat housing. If you use the largest tubing available for the application, you'll get "thermosyphon" if the cpu is below the radiator. Old solar hot water heater principle from "The Mother Earth News" , IMO DrVette
