When you actually crunch the numbers, the benefits (if any) are far smaller than many people realize. Generally speaking, the only time that a dual-loop setup is beneficial is when you're deliberately trying to focus more cooling on one component at the expense of another. Otherwise, a single-loop (with the same components) provides maximum cooling ability towards whatever component is under load, and gives up virtually nothing if everything is under load at the same time. And of course, it's simpler to route one loop than two.
