WOW now i'm determined to get the C70 even though everyone recommended the 810 and i was partially with them. (also, the C70 is cheaper by almost 100$ here)
if you would have used a shorter PSU, could you fit that 240 on the bottom? (lets say a AX750?)
not sure if it helps or not, but if you go to Alphacool's website to the product pages (link and Link) you'll find these two manuals:
this on the V1, and this on the V2
if you scroll to the bottom you would see the difference between both.
So it would be that bad to include the TF 'block' in a loop with 2 rads, cpu and gpu that a D5 couldn't handle it? should i consider the 35x route? don't include the TF at all?
The TF is a huge bottleneck, plan your system without including that.
I doubt the mobo manuals would warn against including a GPU in the loop with it if it wasn't really a major issue, much less try to use 2 GPU's with it.
I would personally go with an McP35X anyway, but that's just my preference. I would think you could run them all in the same loop without problems if you ran "f" splitters before and after the CPU and northbridge, therefor splitting the pressure and flow between the 2, and then the flow would combine just before going into the GPU. Of course you'd want to use the smaller tube on the TF block.
If you're going to spend the kind of money that you're already looking at for a nice custom loop and dual GPU's, it just seems foolish not to spend a few bucks more for the EK block made for the MVF and ditch the hokie TF entirely.
Trying to ghetto rig it in is going to look like crap, and be a distant second rate to doing it right the first time around.
