New Block

I'm not happy with the Gemini Cool Spiral (High Volume). It can only take something like 65gph through it, and I'm giving it like 370gph. What block can handle more?

MAZE3?

I thought the Maze 3 was the big dog on the market.

I don't know if it's so dependant on the volume as opposed to how well all the components work as a team.

I'm using a DD Maze3, and it works very well with 3/8" tubing and an Eheim 1048. Mid 30's CPU temp at normal use.

My external rad probably makes a big difference, though.

The Maze2 can take even more pressure than the Maze3...

Aren't pressure and volume 2 different things? As in cars you want volume not pressure. The only thing pressure nets you is a higher boiling point. Not relevant here. From what I have read in many reviews, there is minimal pressure. Flow rate is what is needed.

ok think like this, tube of toothpaste, gently squeeze it, now step on it, see which causes a higher flow of toothpaste! pressure and flow rate are proportional. Increase one and the other must go up.

The Gemini wasnt designed for high flow. It was designed to be the most efficient block on the market. If you have a higher flow block you lose much surface area for the water to remove heat. You really dont need 400 GPH of water flowing through your block to keep things cool. A 150 GPH eheim, a Gemini Spiral and a heater core is about as good as it gets.

does that mean my 11 gallon per minute pump is too big?

HOLY ****! I thought that if the water moved to fast across the block- it cant absorb the heat......

I like the block, I just don't feel that it is doing anything good for my pump. This pump costs $20 vs $55ish for a Ehime, and is better, but does 370GPH. I really like it, and I'm not sure what block I will settle on.

True.

But, if the restriction is too high then at increased flow rates the pressure will rise far faster than the flow rate..

 

Take that same tube of tuth paste. Leave the cap on and drill a small hole in it. Now step on it. Pressure goes through the roof but the flow rate sucks....
