They are all correlated. A pump with higher pressure will maintain a better flow rate through restriction.

However a pump with a very high flow rate but with poor pressure/head/lifting ability will just get raped by the restriction and result in poor flow rate.

Watercooling is definitely coolness. The only reason I got out of it was because it was sucking all my money away and the actual PC hardware was suffering No money for upgrades.

Watercooling is addictive, beware.

thats what i like about water cooling..even when a new socket comes out you don't have to replace the entire kit, you can just get a new block.
