Hey guys I have been communicating with Maingear about some of the concerns you all have and they sent me this message. Gotta say that their customer service has been outstanding!
"Sean here from MAINGEAR Computers. I see there has been a few questions regarding the temperature threshold of the D5 Laing pumps we are using for Light-Borne's system and would like to clarify them.
D5 Laing pump are capable of running with no problems up to 95 Degree Celsius, which it will then safely shuts itself down to prevent damage to the pump. Based on provided documents, the 60 Degree Celsius limit is essentially for the default plastic pump top (housing) and not the pump itself. Our systems do not use the default pump top but instead, we use an Acetal plastic based pump top that has higher maximum temperature limit of 80 Degree Celsius. This allows our pumps (we have two D5 pumps for redundancy purposes in all our Force systems) to run at higher temperatures without running the risk of damaged housing or leaking parts. Please refer to the link below for facts on Acetal plastic.http://www.dynalabcorp.com/technical_info_acetal.asp
We also build our system with integrated controlled fans that controls all fans to the temperature of the system itself instead of them running individually. This is to prevent excessive fan noise coming from the system when a certain component runs hotter than the others. Our customers have the option to bypass this option and go with having the fans on full throttle to cool the radiators even faster, bringing down the temperature of the liquid even more.
And coming to the fan choice, we went with the Silverstone Air penetrator 140mm fans. The grills at the back of the fans provide air channeling feature that allows air to travel in a straight directed path instead of the usual dispersed flow. This concentrates the airflow directly over the radiator fins and out of the radiator so heat is removed immediately.http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.p ... 81&area=en
Our customers are always welcomed to contact us and discuss the types of hardware and components they'd like to use in their system. We will try to accommodate of our customers' requests and are more than happy to work with them to get a system they will love. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or inquiries."
P.S. OC Numbers coming soon!
