Ok I've had some advice and it looks like 2 loops and 2 pumps is the way to go.

One 320 could be pushing it.

Hey magic, what size of tubing are you using, and what kind ?

interesting... maybe larger volume and high speed of water will be improving whole temperature... right?

I'm using 7/16ich tubing-musko something and the mighty MCP655 for good flow pressure.

Also have NF P12s which Im not so sure about.

Large volume only makes temperature changes happen more slowly, Max temp will still be the same just takes longer to get there. Faster flow will help as it will create turbulence in the water but that requires bigger pumps and most of the heat generated by the pumps goes into the water so it's somewhat self defeating. The gains are probably positive but suspect they're marginal provided the small pump is big enough. I use CPX-1's (which are considered pretty tiny) and I'm quite happy.

Yes thanks for the offer Miggs, be glad to pay shipping.

Just paid for the MCP 655 on Black_ice dragons's for sale post- so now have the gear needed for a loop dedicated to the GPUs only, just going to keep the cpu loop (vortex style with a MCR220) as is.

Will start a work-log soon as the rest of the gear comes in.
