But yes my 2nd res is filling from the bottom but the pump is higher then the bottom of the res.(Maby that has something to do with it)But it does work fine.No air bubbles no loss of flow.At least not noticeable at all.And temps dropped.Most of the temp drop can be seen at max load.
A few things to consider though:
1 ) i am using a pump/res combo as the first res so the fill point is before the pump. (Rasa res/pump)
2) My pump is mounted higher then the bottom of the second res(Roughly in the middle)
3) The water flows down to the bottom of Res 2.
These may be reasons it works well.Maby if my pump was located lower or some other configuration then it wouldn't work.I have no idea.I always from the beginning really couldn't see any reason it wouldn't flow well.
Just wanted to let you all know the final results of this and it has been running strong 24/7 @ 5 Ghz and i was benching today running 5.3 Ghz with my Gpu @ 1000/1500 1.2v Gpu never hit over 40c Benching and the Cpu also runs cool to.I dont have before and after Photo's of my temps so i am not going to bother trying to prove temp differences.I can just say in my setup the 2 Res idea worked out perfect.
And thank you guys for your help with this.I was really nervous it wasn't going to work out.Also sorry so long since o left an update.I just wanted to make sure all is well before posting it a success.

so was it worth the money ?
trying to decide if i want to do this with my current project
the only thing im curious of is if my tri sli setup will already be pushing my pump to its limits
