Ok here is what i have.
One loop
MCP 355 pump
1 gtx 360 rad and 1 SwitftTech 480 Rad

I have CPU OC to 4.5ghz 44c

GPU's i have two GTX 470's Water Cooled (will be getting another waterblock to cool my 3rd this week). And the 3rd stock heat sink.

Temps

CPU Idle 44 Max 80 (prime for 3hrs)

GPU's

35 idle max 45(the water cooled ones) stock 40 idle 80 Max

Now as you see in the in pictures they loop is set up all wrong prob so i need help with that.

As of right now Pump>480rad>CPU>360Rad>GPU's>RES>pump Is this right?

Also would should i have as very little tubing as i can would it really impact temps that bad?

Thank you

Route your tubing however looks best/is convenient, it won't affect temps. Loop order also does not matter, just have the res before the pump.

1 pump should be fine. The GPUs temps are great, but the 920 is a bit high. Seeing how you're running 4.5GHz on it, that is to be expected though. I might try a reseat of your CPU block and see if that helps any. But as long as it doesn't peak over 80 you should be fine.

is that the ek HF block, might try differnce plate in it and then reseat it
use GOOD tim, but at 4.5 stable for 3 hours your not doing bad

oh, put some fans on that 480 that will probably do you more than anything else right now

A radiator doesn't do anything unless it has airflow. Since you only have two fans on that 480 radiator it's effectively only a 240mm.

Add in the third GPU, and add two fans to the rear radiator.

Pump and GPU temperatures are fine, what voltage is the chip set at for 4.5 GHz?

You want more fans on that radiator for sure, as others have said. Use a push-pull setup... fans on both side of the radiator, this will drop your idle temps a few degrees and probably drop your max by a lot. My max temps dropped about 8 °C when I went to the push-pull setup.

You also should consider a mount for that 480 radiator on the back of the case. Those fans are not going to get any air up against the back of the case. I purchased a Koolance adjustable mounting bracket for $45 and it's made all the difference in the world for my setup...http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=25631
