People seems to say that parallel is the better option, but wont be more than a few degrees difference..

For parallel to gain benefit over series, would't that be that the flow rate might improve in parallel due to less flow restriction in the loop, depending on what pump and other blocks in the loop?

I have heard once, and don't remember all the details, that one had parallel and switched to series, noticed a significant drop in temperature on one of the gpu's, but he had a problem to begin with that made him try series IIRC.

I haven't read so much discussions on parallel vs series, but I would assume that flow rate is the deciding factor on what you should run, not that the first gpu transfers heat to the other gpu and such.
