yes and no, in the long run no cause the water will be heated up all the time, in short term yes cause it will take longer for the water to heat up. Instead of going with that beast of a rad you could buy 3 360 rads and mount them the same way, then u could have a rad between every component. Still think thats way overkill. Have you looked into motherboard waterblocks?

Never really set budgets. I don't feel like spending a thousands. But I also don't like limiting myself. Budgets never go well with me, I break them anyways so why set one? lol!

That's not quite correct the larger res means it'll take longer for the loop to hit it's max temp (talking minutes at best) there will be "some" improvement on cooling but far less then what you'd gain from fitting an additional 120 into the loop.

As for the Rad's being spread out there will be an average temp for the loop. However you'll still have low points and high points. The low points for the water temp will be right after the water exits a rad, and the High points will be when the water exits a component block. So with this we can say that having a rad between the CPU block and the GPU block will result in cooler water heading to both components. Has the water will be on it's low point having just exited a Rad.

You want simple buy a kit with an rx360. Get two gpu blocks, some hose, barbs and call it a day-

I see the barbs...But I don't get what they do. Are they like the seals for the hose to connect into?

And to test the loop, is it best to hook it all up outside of the case without parts and make sure all the seels are working, then reconnect it once varified?

Barbs are what connects your hose to whatever piece of equipment. I built my loop in the case with the equipment and just powered the pumps on and let it run for some hours. If the board or anything gets wet it won't kill it because it's not powered on.

EDIT: I took a photo-

Ahh I see. That makes since. Can dye be used in the cables/pumps? To add flavor?
