would this work out? (watercooling setup)

It would be better for tubing purposes to go 240 --> GPU --> CPU kind of like my build. The temps are not gonna change and it will be tidier.

do you really think a 360rad will do for a 3770k and 680? and i wanna be able to hit over clocks so should i not get the extra 240rad?

Sorry thats not what i meant. What I was trying to say is that there are two tubes going over the GPU, the ones for the GPU and the one for the CPU, that doesnt touch the GPU. 

It would be cleaner and less of a hassle if you eliminate that much tubing and change the order of the tubing to something like the example I just gave you.

hi thanks for the feedback i have tried and failed to understand what you are saying as i am very new to watercooling so please could you do a repeat of what i did in the first picture (a plan on how it will work) here is the original pic:
post #6 of 18
That's a pretty clean layout. I like the big tubes and the amount of space you have for the res. I have been thinking how to do mine when I get to it. I have a HAF 932 and am really trying to figure out how to make it clean like yours and still keeping a couple of the HDD trays.

Although I have not gotten my hands into water cooling yet I do look at a lot of water cooling setups. You have a great idea there having two radiators. Something that I have thought about myself. However, after reading through many build logs what CBZ323 is saying is that the bottom radiator is not necessary. The temp difference is going to be pretty negligible. On your diagram go green from res ==> radiator ==> GPU ==> CPU ==> res. Sorry, I don't really know how to mark up a photo like that. I could figure it out, but I'm tired.

Edit: Didn't see where you stated you wanted to overclock your setup.

What my point is that the CPU is hotter then the gpu so if you was to transfer that same water which went from the CPU meaning that the temps of that water as soon as it goes throw the CPU water block would already be around 30-35c why on earth would you still wanna transfer that same water directly to the gpu which runs cooler then the CPU. What I'm saying is that would you not be bottlenecked by the heated water from CPU to gpu that is why in my pic it went from CPU back down to rad then gpu?.

I had a big long reply and decided that it didn't answer anything. Upon inspecting the loop on CBZ323's picture compared to what you are trying to do it isn't too different. As you just said in your last post, though, is if your GPU is cooler than your CPU then it isn't going to cause your CPU temp to increase. Do you plan to use all the HDD cages? If not, try seeing what you could do with some of the space not being utilized. I must say, jaheermk, I think we are going to get some experienced people to follow up. Sorry, but I do hope you do a build log. I love following along to see how you do things.

Yeah I will do one if you want me to.
