Like alcal said it wouldn't work for 2 gpus in the loop at all, but for one with an RX/EX kit it would be fine. Also I'm assuming the dual bay res is the one with the housing for the pump right? If so awesome, I have the same one and it's great. Otherwise change and get that one.
From a personal point of view I think it's silly to only cool one card but that's more an aesthetic purpose I guess it doesn't really matter, but should you decide to overclock those cards later remember that you'll be limited by how far you can push your second card before temps get too warm.

Thanks for that I will look to change the rad before ordering in the morning. I wont be overclocking the gpu`s because they wont overclock past the factory oc and remain stable but that's another thread.

Bloodquest - thanks I looked at the kits and the prices came to somewhere similar but I was under the belief the cpu block I chose was better but if that's not the case I will order one of the kits on your advice.

The CPU blocks are all comparable in the end, the raystorm and supremacy are within like a degree or 2 of each other tops. I wouldn't worry as much about performance between them, it's more which one you like the looks of more and pricing IMHO.

Do yourself a favor, run a drain line. just use a "T" at the lowest point and run about 6-12" of tubing with a cap on the end. It will make draining and cleaning much easier.

and get whatever else you're missing from there. I'd personally take the raystorm over the supremacy anyway based on looks, it's what I'm using and those LED mounts make it look sexy. Same thing for the GPU block, I'm using the 690 XSPC block and love it.

Wow that us link is so cheap. Just checked the uk price into dollars for the same kit and comes to 425 us. OK that's decided then I will order the kit in the morning as a whole and look into also running a drain line as advised. Thanks very much for all the advice its appreciated.

Keep in mind with that kit that it has a pump already so you won't need to get a pump as well. It isn't as powerful, but I THINK it should be adequate for your loop. Best of luck

well I ordered all my loop parts today so hopefully everything will go smoothly, parts as follows

1x XSPC RayStorm CPU/APU WaterBlock (AMD
1 x xspc rx360 radiator
1x OcUK Tech Lab - XSPC D5 Vario Pump & EK-D5 X-TOP CSQ Value Combo
1x XSPC Single 5.25” Bay Reservoir - Multi Fascia
Lian Li TR-5B Multi-Controller - Black
Mayhems Ice Dragon Nano Fluid 1L
Mayhems Fine Silver Kill Coil
8 xOcUK 1/2" G1/4 - FatBoy Style - Black Nickel - Barb Fitting
OcUK Value PSU Bridging Connector (24 Pin)

Nzxt switch 810 case
3 xAerocool Shark White Edition LED Fan - 140 mm for the interior effect

Will be arriving on the 5th.

Thought the case and components will give me the room for future upgrades to gpu cooling also when feeing more confident about the whole building thing. And it was all quite expensive to buy at once because I didn't figure on changing case.
