Not the best, but it sure feels nicer than the bareback version.
I also got a new beasty pump since my last shots, a 35x that I snagged from mlee. It squirts so damn hard I had to put a series of screw clamps on my tubing to add enough restriction, so that I could keep agitation out of my res - and air out of my lines. Doesn't look too swell, but works wonders. Something else: I asked the guy at Swiftech if the pump being at the bottom of my case was creating my enormous flow rate and he told me pump location makes no difference in a closed loop, that there would be the same pressure if the pump were at the top. Interesting. Any thoughts?
Also, here is a quick clip of flow before the clamps: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSCmTy6lJvk
its due to the top of the pump... all of these Restops, have severe problems with the formation of cyclones in the water.... EK sells anti cyclone inserts for their Res, i bet one of these would help you very much with your problem
