an outsider reading this thread would have to be amazed at the credence given to flow rates and temperatures, and the immediate skepticism with which db(A) 'values' are met
There are numerous sites out there discussing flow and general o/c. Turning SPCR into yet another one would be horrific. Let's stick to what we're good at here. Silent PCs!
the same approach is valid for all measurements; they are either actual measurements, or not
-> why discuss someone's guessing accuracy ?
if they are unable or too lazy to measure it . . . . .
if a nonsensical claim is made, the burden of proof is on the claimant
I dunno if you're referring to my split lines? You're right about everybody speculating, and yep, I'm too lazy to measure it only to present the numbers on the internet!
I guess you have higher standards. I'm too sloppy and simply tried this out until solved. Just don't agree on the word "nonsensical"
in my case. Again, 600 lpm, 1.50 m head. Which is why I tried it in the first place. Made sense
Never even guessed on my total flow in exact numbers, never found that interesting. Presenting numbers, like noise 22 dBa or flow 13 lpm, begs good measuring standards. Saying flow substantially increased, however, is like saying this Adda fan is noisier than this Nexus. Not how much noisier. Still don't trust it's noisier without precise numbers because "loud as hell" vs "barely audible" isn't good enough? (SPCR seldom bothers to measure up bad fans. Just confirms it's bad, and measure the good ones instead!)
The reason I pointed to Cathar's numbers is because it shows us how un
-important flow is, and how small pumps are weak against restriction. I leave it to you to scientificly test and (dis-)prove it
