im confused now, we have 2 different ways so far. if someone could fill the blanks in my crappy drawing i would be alot happier and not so stressed thanks. should i change the top rad around? ive been looking around on some threads and they seem to be putting a rad in between like pump, res, nb, cpu, rad gpu rad??
MCR320 -> CPU -> NB/SB -> GPU -> Res -> Pump -> MCR220 -> back to MCR320 ??

I would do two loops, but

One of the options:

MCR320 -> CPU -> NB/SB -> GPU -> Res -> Pump -> MCR220 -> back to MCR320

Bit longer tube runs (I think), but good too.

ps Do you have equipment already?

I like what you did in your pic and I think that will work out for you perfectly. Something else you may want to consider is a drain. Makes it so much easier and you can just a t-line for that and bend it down to make it the lowest point when you need it. When your not using it just tuck it away out of sight.

Instead of T-line you can add another barb and piece of tube to the bottom of reservoir.

Yeah pretty much whatever will work best with your build to use as a drain. Comes in so handy instead of pulling a hose off quickly and hoping for the best.
