YES, just south of L.A.Overbrazil said:I think danny is supplying the backorders. My TC4 was shippied yerterday, with the springs. The trcking says that is in Sant Ana.
Sorry for the ignorance, but where is it ?
Near LA ?
It should do better than the Z4, most blocks outperform it as it is and the TC-4 is one of the best performing blocks around...EclipseJP said:I should get a TC4. I wonder how it would compare to my Blizzard Z4.
Agree. Now with the springs, perhaps will se 1 or 2 degrees coolernikhsub1 said:

Let me clarify about the springs: With my 1048 Eheim, the TC-4 with the old turbulators did very well, this pump is low flow and low heat (10W, 158GPH). When I swapped to the 1250 with 317GPH and 28W of heat, I noticed a rise in temps - Weird. When DodgeViper removed the turbulators he reported better temps with his 1250, we both have very similar setups. I removed them too and found a good drop in temps, 2C about. I believe with higher flow pumps the stock turbulators cause some unwanted backpressure. The springs allow the water to flow almost as if the channels were bare but do cause turbulance and give more copper surface area. Don't expect a HUGE drop in temps from bare channel to springs, it is more on the order of .5 - 1C better with the springs.Overbrazil said:

I don't know. If you have the stock turbulators in, take them out. If temps are better that way then you will do better with the springs. No 2 systems are equal, mileage will definately vary.surly said:nikhsub1, how much do you think the temps would differ between the two with a 230gph pump cooling only the cpu and with 1/2 tubing.
