I was just wondering (don't really have any plans just ideas) how many rads and blocks can a OCZ Hydro Pluse 500 run? and what would 2 of the same pumps do for the loop?

like i said i don't have any plans just stupid ideas. And i know it also depends on how restrictive everything is also so given the worse case...

any amount of rads, you would like to use,1 restrictive CPU and one low restriction GPU block.
with 2 of the Pumps, i would believe you could also do a full setup, including NB, SB and VRM;)

thank you for answering :toast:
I was thinking of grabbing a 2nd and using 3 rads(2x120.2 1x140) and getting blocks for NB/SB/VRM/GPU but it really isn't needed. The battle axe keeps GPU temps down the spot cool does good for NB and VRM the SB is fine with just airflow from the case :)
