So it's: reservoir>radiator>cpu>gpu>2 radiator>back to reservoir. That's how mine is minus the second radiator and I get some great temps. You should play around with it before you hook everything up. I always plan out a clean looking loop but then my tubing might want to bend this or that way so it changes a little bit.

I would put a radiator in between the CPU and the Titan. So pump/res>rad>gpu>rad>cpu>pump/res, or something similar to that.

That's how I would do it. Loop order doesn't matter and it's the shortest route with the least amount of bends. It will look cleaner .
