My System Specs

Default Split rads or not

I have 2 rads should I split them between the cpu and the vid card or run them as one system ?
1 rad holds 3 fans the other rad holds two fans ....

I always suggest running through all the rads instead of splitting them. There is no benefit to splitting them up. Cool the water as much as possible prior to the blocks.

so I should run the rads back to back before entering the cpu and video card?

Unless things have changed since I last looked into this, CPU's OC better when cooler... GPU's don't care so much. This is why I run two independent loops. Overkill probably.

The order of the components doesn't matter. This has long since been proven. An organized flow is much more important. Yeas ideally you would go pump to rad to block, but lay it out as best fits in your situation to maintain a nice flow.

ok i decided to run my system in this switch 810 case ( what a pain modding ) but my question in on the 2 fan rad that sits in the very bottom of the case .
if i have the fans blow downwards then there is a screen filter then the desk , will this be enough room to vent the heat off of the 2 fan rad?
or should i vent it into the case which would pull more cool air threw the rad? but also more hot air into the case?
