It's the other way around, D5 for flow for cpu block and ddc for pressure for gpu loop.
Here's how I like to think of it. Your cpu is pretty damn hot (if it's good) and pretty damn small! Now your gpus are really hot too, but think how much bigger a full cover block is. It can have a significantly higher mass of water over its heat exchange area and therefore does not need as high as flow as the cpu block.
I don't know if you can safely serialize a D5 with a ddc or if it will blow up. But if you could, I would try and do a kick ass serial loop. 1/2 the work to drain a well build serial loop than 2 parallel loops. Like 360 rad -> cpu -> 200mm rad -> gpu1 -> gpu2 -> reservoir -> pump.
Or a parallel loop taking advantage of each pump's strong points (flow vs pressure):
1: 200mm rad -> cpu -> res -> d5 -> back to rad
2: ddc -> bottom video card -> top video card -> res -> 360 rad
Anyways, good luck! I hope i'm not misinformed about the first statement (

says the same thing about flow rates).
