e.g.

Loop 1: Pump > Rad > CPU > Res (or T-Line) > return to pump
Loop 2: Pump > Rad > GPU > (any other blocks, if applicable) > Res (or T-Line) > return to pump

So you' have two pumps, two rads (at least), two blocks (at least), and two t-line's (or reservoirs).

You can have 1 loop to cool everything in a single series or a 2 loop to cool things in parallel. This saves on costs and space for reservoirs.

Well he has you pretty well set-up for parts...I would do 2 separate loops to, especially if you are wanting to OC it much...You would just need a extra pump and rad...With 2 loops I think I would run a res on one and a t-line on the other to save some space....Maybe a 240 rad for CPU and a 360 for the GPU loop...

1st loop...res-pump-rad-cpu

2nd loop...t-line-pump-rad-gpu-gpu-gpu

I would get Swifty 60 GPU blocks.Swifty 60..They need to be used with ram sinks..Swifty 60 Ram Sinks..You should be able to find them there also...They will cool about as well as any, not restrictive, can be moved from card to card easily since they are universal fit and don't dump ram heat into your loop...And on top of that they are cheaper...

I'll leave you some stuff to read and my cleaning and set-up PDF...Be sure to read all the stickies here also, there is a lot of good info in them....

Take your time and do a little research and you will build him a better rig for less..The temp's are great and its a lot of fun....Welcome to the Forums...
