Here's what I'm getting at: whatever block is most restrictive will receive the least amount of flow. I suspect it's your CPU block seeing as you are hitting 60 degree temps at stock. Parallel flow only works on identical blocks.

Edit: don't get me wrong, it's a pretty loop. I just don't think it's as effective cooling as it should be. You may not care though.
The Supreme HF CPU block has a similar pressure drop as the EK GTX680 blocks. Now if I were to have a more restrictive Swiftech Apogee HD instead I would more than likely run in to issues.

I'd guess I have around 0.2 GPM over each block so I don't doubt my temps will be a tad high. If I turn the fans and pump up temps are around 53-54C on the CPU and 45-50C on the GPUs.
