RP-401X2 and pump heat sinks

Postby Masika » Tue Mar 17, 2015 8:28 am

Is it possible to install the Heat Sink for PMP-400 on both or one side of the RP-401X2?

On both pumps yes but pretty sure you cant get them onto both sides of the pumps. Even if you could the heat sink would have no way to breath and would end up just heating the assembly. And the otherside of the pump is where the fluid goes.

The plan was have positive case pressure and to have a bay fan to blow over the heatsinks.

And with some thought the fluid in loop will be hotter than outside... so even if the pump heats more with airflow heat will be taken away from the pump.. real question is, is it worth the extra dollars for minor heat dissipation.

It won't hurt anything but your bank account, but it might help with the lifetime of the pumps although I'm not sure if it would have a measurable effect of liquid temperatures. Would be something interesting to see someone lab test.

Koolance techs got back to me... Apparently the heatsinks do not fit!

Lucky I did not order the heatsinks when I purchased the pump/res.

Mind you... I have two heatsinks here at home.. I can see for myself.
