Rac for best performance your loop should start off with
Res., Pump, rad., CPU, rad. GPU's back to res.
The pump does add a little heat to the coolant, I once had my loop set up with the rad. , res. pump, CPU, GPU, back though rad., then to res.
I lost 6 degrees c. when I put the rad. between the pump and CPU
