Default Which order should I do loop?

I'm looking to finally wc my i7 and have decided to use 2 mcr 320s so I can add video cards later anywy how should I do my loop? Pump, rad, rad, CPU, res, pump or pump, rad, CPU, rad, res, pump. I will have my wcing setup the same as kruzn's just without the 295s

You just prepare the second loop for when you have the block, or just not use the second rad yet. I see no use for 2 * 320 for only a CPU .

The only thing that matters in a loop is res > pump. Make your loop as simple and short as possible.

It was shown again and again that loop order has little to no influence on the cooling performance - only rule to follow is to have the reservoir higher than the pump.

As for a block: EK-FC9800 GX2 SLI - Full Cover For Nvidia GeForce - VGA Blocks - Blocks

And since Daz is ordering, this is the time more than ever. EK-Waterblocks "car pool" III X-mas order

+1 Don't worry about order as long as reservoir located above the pump and feeds it. Optimal vs. not optimal order is about half of degree and can be discounted towards easier and better looking tubing runs.

Also, single TFC360 performace rad will take on CPU and future GPUs easily.

I can't see a tfc taking on a i7 at min 4.2 Plus a bunch of gpus. The TFC is ment for slow fans anyway, as for Charlie and the block, I'm not looking at spending more for a block than I did on your gx2. I can get for 150 in the states so was wondering if any Canadian places had em. I will wait for now then as I was gonna buy a secod mcr 320 and use it with my i7 till I get a block.
