Default Loop question

Hey guys would a xspc slim rad (240mm) be enough to cool a gtx 560ti448 (asus) and an X61100? Got the cpu under water already and want to add the vid card to the loop but just want to make sure it will work alright

Your CPU temps will likely go up 0-10˚C but otherwise you should be good. It really depends on your fans and air flow.

Have 2 gt 1850rpm's and the airflow comes in the front and out the top through the rad soo airflow is a non-issue(max temps in summer weather on the cpu is 36 anyways). So should the loop cool the gpu first and then the cpu or?

Thanks again

Loop order doesn't really matter. Since the loops are so small water temperature reaches an equilibrium throughout the loop.

if you plans include any overclocking, i'd concider a thicker unit.
especially if you plan to have a load on the system longer than 4hrs.
agin, loop order is neglegable for temps about 1-3. only one order
to follow is reserviour to pump.. and the rest is all about looking good!
