If you set it up the correct way you should not lose much in the loop at all, you can get some water blocks that are straight through and are bascially just a continuation of the hose which will not harm your pressure at all. Cooling your chipset can be of some benefit, when you are looking at getting into above 300 htt or even 330+ in a warmer climate or even in a warm case it can help with stability. I have had few issues with my chipset cooling as the stock cooler is not the best at all but because of the cooler Im using on the gpu there is nothing I can really do. If there is a very thin and small water block that I could use by all means I would have no isuues with bolting it on and forgetting about it
If you find a solution be sure to post it because Im keen aswell
