Yeah always res before pump and any order that follows next.

If you are internally adding a 120mm to the rear the top 240 may obstruct it..

As long as water will flow from the reservoir to the inlet, you are good to go.

I'm having second thoughts about rad though. I might pickup another 240 rad and place it in front so it'll be one up top and 1 up front.

:-) don't worry thats the watercooling effect ehhe.

I must have changed my loops 4 or more times before i was satisfied..

I've switched rads, different reservoirs.. fittings, tubing colour, all sorts of things until I was satisified..

I went way over my intended budget.. but it became another aspect of pc building that I enjoy.

The only requirement is res outlet to pump inlet. But it is easier to bleed up through the gpu. The rest of the loop order does not matter with proper flow and enough rad.I wonder if you could move the HD to the drive bays and put 120mm single were the HD use to be. That should be enough cooling for both. cpu and v
gpu.

I've run a GTX480sc oc'd and 980x oc'd to 4.3Ghz on a triple TFC rad. People screamed bloody murder that it would be terrible.
I only had 3x fans on on side pushing air through the rad (Scythe SFLEX) - and the loop ran at 52c. well, thats what temp monitors showed for the GPU/CPU.

If you have room to sandwich fans on the rad, I think you'd be doing well. I would try that out before spending more money on another Rad.. you will be tearing your loop apart over and over again anyways.
