First step, try it out.
Second step add another rad.
Third at a separate pump to rad/separate loop.
Good points. I'll go parallel. BTW, there are two rads in there now. The top 240 and the thick 120 in the bottom. I don't have room for another pump and res so it'll have to stay as one loop.

Yours looks cluttered because the area your hardware is in is smaller, and cable management wasn't as easy.

You'll be at the rads limits trying to cool 3 blocks with 3 120 cores.
Yor pump should handle it fine.
The new EK-Blocks look pretty much the same under the cover, but I'm with you on liking the older version better. Daz is out of them but if you ask he may order you in one if EK has any left.
Again, I agree with going parallel. It makes more sense.

I'll email Daz and see what he can do for me.

Thanks guys!!
