Water passes through a water block (like a heatsink) and absorbs the heat. __________________ www.revelationlan.com Lan Gaming in Southern California!!!

A pump with one foot of head won't work very well. How much flow can it put out? I would look for at least 6 feet of head. Pumps such as the D5 (12 feet) and the DDC-2 (20 feet) are used in most setups. YOU have to find out what will give you the most head around 90-100 gallons per hour.

EDIT:

sorry for the double post but it won't let me delete either one of my posts...

You need to run them in series to get 7 feet of head. Sounds like they should work out.
