Loop Advice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
First time poster here and I am looking for some advice on my loop. Here is a list of the parts I am going to be using:

Computer parts
-Core i7 4770k
-16 gb (2x8) Corsair Vengeance @2133
-Sli Gtx Titan
-Samsung 840 pro 512gb
-Seagate Barracuda 2tb x 4 in raid 10
-Case Labs TH10
-Yamakasi Leonidas 2560x1600 (possibly, not sure)

Watercooling parts
-Swiftech Apooge HD
-EK Titan XXL x 2
-EK CoolStream XTX 480 x 2 or CoolStream XTX 480 and CoolStream XTX 360 (Haven't decided)
-Swiftech Maelstrom with dual MCP35X (each pump at 10%)

So right now my plan is to either do Option 1: Res ---> behind motherboard ---> T connector for drain ---> Radiator ---> Radiator ---> CPU ---> GPU ---> Res
or Option 2: Res ---> T connector for drain ---> GPU ---> CPU ---> Radiator ---> Radiator ---> Res. So my question is will I see much of difference between go ing with option 1 over option 2 in terms of temperature? Do you guys have any ideas about how the loop could be better, like should I go GPU ---> Radiator --->CPU? How is the swiftech maelstrom, i haven't found many reviews of it? I think I may do a build log of this build and was curious if you guys have any good suggestions for names, right now I thinking Oceanus or Mnemosyne in reference to the gtx titans but I would love to hear what you guys can come up with.

I included some images of the build from google sketch up, the waterblocks on the titans are not the ones I am using but it was the best I could find and the bay res is not the maelstrom.

Loop order is pretty much meaningless. Just route it so that it looks the best.
