Well, maybe he can just chug/slurp the water and spill it into a bucket. That should work

Hrmm I don't think loop order would really matter because sooner or later the system is going to come to equilibrium anyways so I would just go with whatever makes the loop look cleanest.

ok i'm looking at doing a similar setup, but i need to know is a rasa 360 going to be enough to cover a 2600k and 2 6950's? if not should i add in another radiator or what?
i only plan on light overclocking of the vid cards but will probably set the cpu to around 4.7 or so

Id worry more about the pump being able to handle it and you MIGHT be able to get away with a 360 but ideally you want 240 for the cpu and 120 per graphics card. At least thats my rule of thumb. The pump on those kits are fairly weak iirc.

So are you saying I don't need the CPU in front of the GPU and the loop order shouldn't make any difference?

Actually, I'm going to modify my loop order a bit based on the given suggestions. The loop will be:

-->Reservoir-->Drain Valve-->Pump-->GPU-->Rad1-->CPU-->Rad2-->Reservoir-->

Where Rad1 is a 1x140mm Rad, the Black Ice GT Xtreme 140. This will be mounted inside at the 140mm exhaust fan slot (see http://www.overclockersclub.com/revi...x/images/7.htm). A RX240 might fit, will have to do some measurements when I get home tonight.

And Rad2 is the 3x120mm Rad, XSPC RX360 mounted on the top of the case as originally planned.

Well theres only so much heat the rads can dissipate at a time. You might see lower temps than what I suggested at first but once you keep that loop running for a little bit, the order won't make the slightest difference. I think martin or skinee did a test to see if it actually mattered and the gains were minimal at best. In the end it all evened out. So if it makes your loop messy, I would advise against placing it in between.
