Okay so I know that there are 2 different characteristics of the MCP655 vs MCP35X. The MCP655 seems to have higher LPH vs MCP35X but the MCP35X seems to produce higher head 14.7ft vs 10ft so Iím not sure how it contributes to real life performance. I know that they do make a difference when it comes to the number of blocks in the loop, number of Rads and the complexity of the watercooling setup etc... I was just wondering if head and flow rate comparison between these 2 pumps will yield visible results since Iím changing from MCP655 to MCP35X is it an upgrade per se or could it be considered as a downgrade??
My MCP655 pump seems to start showing signs of aging (3yrs old), priming the pump takes many weeks with huge bubbles still visible in the loop unable to equalize after 1 month. Flow rate definitely seems slower compared to the time when I first bought it. On top of that the MCP35X has a very small footprint which is what I really like.
