2nd lopp would be res > pump > 480 > CPU > Chipset > Ram > res
Thanks in advance
It's an interesting idea, and doable, but I'm not seeing any advantages to it, and given the same components, there's the disadvantage of lost redundancy over a serial pair of pumps in a single loop.
If you really want to give it a go, I'd do as already suggested and put the rads ahead of the res, but also switch the rads to 480 for the GPU loop and 360 on the CPU loop.
High end GPU's typically have greater tdp than CPU's do, and with multiple GPU's, even more important.
Since you're using the Bitspower res, you'd want to add a second three fitting end cap:
to give two seperate bottom connections to the pumps, while still giving a top return(s) and fill/vent ports.
I'd also suggest ditching the diversion fitting that came with it and adding these higher capacity options:
