2x120MM RADs should work great. I would actually reccomend that you config your setup like this if you are going to be using 2 RADs: tline->pump->CPU block->1st RAD->GPU block->2nd RAD->tline. This setup should allow for cooler temps.

I need to make a sticky !

Water will not be measurably cooler because RAD is before CPU..Nor will you get a better over clock by placing rad before or after CPU block.

http://www.overclockers.com.au/wiki/...ithin_the_loop

Many articles have been done to prove this,If someone thinks a fraction of 1c is worth the trouble then put the rad before CPU BUT please dont tell people it makes any performance difference which can make the rig any faster or cooler . . .

If someone wants the facts so they can set up a loop and get the best results the fact is no matter where rad is in loop and no matter what comes before or after it , there is no Preformance gain worth the struggle to make sure it comes before the CPU block

The best temps are in a rig with the shortest tubing routing and the least amount of bends in tubing..So if that means the RAD is the last item in the loop before PUIMP so be it , because a FRACTION of 1c is not worth the argravation or potential leak to put it somewhere Specific because people "THINK" it will lower temps ..

Above link should clearly explain this . .

But in theory, the RAD after the CPU block will cool the water before it passes through the GPU block. But what you are saying would mean that 2 RADs each with 1x120mm fans placed in consecutive order would only out perform of the same RADs with 1x120mm by 1C, correct?

I am SAYING your theroy is misguided and incorrect..Placement of rad before or after CPU will have "LESS" then a 1c difference in temps.

Also if ya Run dual rads you will want to run them Parelle using a Y fitting..There is a good reason WHY,,But I am to lazy to go dig up the link at this moment . .

Diehrd is right. All of the water will end up being the same temp no matter the order of the parts.

Ahh, I get it now. The water temp will even between the 2 RADs runing when not running parallel, but when the water is pumped through 2 parallel RADs split by a Y fitting, the water cant balance itself out because it is runing through 2 independent RADs, then the water is reconnected with another Y fitting.

That's not what Diehard said. He said it will have less than 1C difference in temps. Depending on the pump you use it will make a difference. Pumps release heat into the loop, some more than others. Usually it's not noticable though, just wanted to get the fact straight that the order does make a difference.

Ideally you'd want to have the pump -> radiator... which get the water as cold as possible then -> CPU... cuz that's the most important then -> GPU (if any) -> other blocks (if any) then -> res -> pump -> repeat.

Exactly. You want the coldest water possible going to the CPU block first, then to the GPU block if applicable. That means that the Radiator comes first before the CPU block.

(Edit as my point has offended someone)

Location of RAD..Matters zero..

READ MY LINK it proves my point completly..
http://www.overclockers.com.au/wiki/...ithin_the_loop

It can not be made any simplier then that...LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION may work for real estate BUT not closed LOOP water cooling . .

I wish people would STOP saying the RAD needs to befoe the CPU block..Total NONSENSE . It provides ZERO Measurable BENIFIT...ZERO..Qait let me say that again ZERO benifit .. Water that is les then 0.5c cooler CAN NOT PROVIDE a performance increase ..No way NO how..

So the perfect set up is one where the tubing is routed with least amount of bends and the shortest overall length..Meaning rad location matters only based on best tubing set up..IF that happens to be BEFORE cpu cool if not cool..
