I would be doing Cpu block and going to end up watercooling the two video cards too. so that would be 3 blocks total.

In a single loop, correct? If so, the 355 with the bay-res/top should handle that just fine. If you are concerned, there are aftermarket "heatsinks" for the DDC pumps that might help, along with a fan to provide air.

Yeah doing it all in one loop would make everything less complicated. As long as the pump can handle it all than it sounds good to me.

With my core i7 setup, my WC seems to struggle in terms of temps @ load is concerned. I'm going to buy some good TIM and reapply it to the CPU because i think i don't have enough TIM on the CPU. I have to mess around with it. Since school is over i will have the time.

My Temps @ Load with 1.31 Vcore in Prime 95 will reach 76C's Max. Though this is in 26+C's Ambient Temp.

That is the only reason why i am concerned .

Though we all know that ivy bridge, bulldozer or w/e is coming out next will not run as hot anyways. But still i am a little concerned.

Don't apply too much TIM as that usually does more bad than good...

It's more work, but I always spread a VERY thin and even layer of TIM across the entire surface of the IHS.

Your temps sound a bit high...are you sure you've completely bled all the air out of the rad? A block re-seat never hurt too. What fans do you have on your RX360?

3x gentle typhoons 1450 rpms

I was thinking about a re-seat.

I'm pretty sure there is no air in the rad....If there was how could i tell.

Any TIM recommendations?

As far as i can tell there is no air or anything, no bubbles etc. I'm not sure why it is as hot as it is. I have always had this problem even with my old Dual rad setup. Actually these temps are almost the same as the dual rad i had in there .

Ill be quite honest. My Megahalems cools almost as good as my WC setup. So there has to be something that is going on that is OFF.

I ordered artic Silver 5, when that arrives i'm going to re-seat the CPU block and see what happens.

That isn't right at all....an RX360 with those fans and Rasa block should beat the pants off the Megahalems.

Let us know if you figure it out.
