why not just get a 360mm rad?

as far as size of tubes go dont go lower than 7/16 but 1/2 is preferred. i use primochill and i dont have and clouding. i only use distilled water with dead water

also to save some space in your case why not get a res/pump combo

also if you can afford get a full water block for your gpu

sorry i forget to write fan size
i already have 3 or 5 thermalright 140mm fans

so you suggest me 1 x 420 radiator > CPU > GPU1 > GPU2
this is better than my planned loop?

I would trash the 3x single 140mm rad and go with a single 420mm all together if your case can fit it otherwise, a 360 should be fine. Plus your rig will look much cleaner without so much filler tubing going to 3 different rads. I have a 420mm Alpha cool UT60 installed in my Switch 810 which works and fits like a charm after a little bit of modding.

Well, for a start the effect of a tubing size is negliable - see, for example, http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?147767-The-impact-of-tubing-sizes or http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=515368 that out of the way I myself prefer 10/8 mm as it tends to be roughly about the same as the G1/4 fittings, but its really just matter of preference. Now as far as radiators go I would go with a single larger radiator instead of multiple small ones, if possible, as the restriction should be somewhat smaller that way. I prefer compression fittings, but either compression or barbs are at the end of a day equally safe as long as you do them carefully (and use clamps on barbs) - I just think compression looks a bit cleaner and is a bit easier to handle.

You dont need to put rads between blocks,it serves no purpose,temps will not be better for it.
480 is the base size rad i would start with.
