Default Loop question

Ok so to start i had a rs360 for my cpu only, now i'm redoing it to put my 6990, so i threw the rs360 out and put a rx240 since they are 20% better

Should i use my phobya 200mm + rs120 for cpu at 5ghz and rx240 for 6990 ? Or the other way around ?

I am confused. You replaced the RS360 w/ an RX240? If so you are doing a serious downgrade. The RS360 will easily be able to disperse a good 40% more heat than the RX240. Also a single loop will almost always perform better than two loops.

I wanted two loops for 2 colors, which I did... RS120 + phobia 200mm are keeping the i5 2500k at 30 idle and 55-58 load, almost same as my RS360, RX240 is keeping my 6990 at 32-33 idle and 52-55 load
