my big water' is currently only cooling my cpu; can i route it to cool 'in series' my northbridge aswell, as in can my big water cool both items? -obviously if the out of the cpu is going into the in of the northbridge block then the water will be warmer, but will it be a pretty good way of keeping northbridge cooler? i am currently using northbridge heatsink. (and i got an error saying NB over temp!)

If its keeping your CPU cool enough for you now adding a NB block shouldn't hurt your temp's a lot.

I am looking at your pc in your signature. That is not a cheap machine, but you are using a bigwater kit on it! This is something you want to reconsider. Really.
There are several good guides here for water cooling loops. some for under 200.
The easiest thing you could do is post a request for advice on a new wc loop build. Giving a budget and listing all you want to cool in the loop.
Just my .02

suggest you read this thread http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...-purchase.html

One word "Thermaltake"
Two words "Thermaltake sucks"
Three words "Thermaltake is trash"
Four... you get the poing

Any custom build will blow the big water away. There are other quality kits to such as the swiftech ones. To the original question. As long as you happy with your cpu temp adding a nb block won't affect temps to much.

It is just not as good as a custom loop would be. If you read the threads here about building a wc loop it will probably help. There are some people here who are very experienced with closed loop water cooling, such as OC'ing Noob, TbN = Gir, Ira K, etc. Rather than try to go into detail I'd prefer to refer you to them on this subject. Now if you want to talk about open loop water cooling, I'd be able to help you out However most people prefer closed loop solutions due to size / portability issues.

like nub said, thermaltakes don't make that great of a WC components..

their rads have aluminum in it and their block tops tend to crack. they just aren't that great. though gir, would have more reasons to tell you.

The pumps break, res's crack and leak into your system, the block is copper and the radiator is aluminium, this causes galvanic corrosion, which eats away at the copper CPU block...
