Wonder how Performance-PCs is about returning products that are still in the box.
I would still like to talk to some one who has had triple DDC tops kill a pump. I'm a pictures or it didn't happen kinda guy.
Any chance you can get EK to come off their data where they had a triple top kill a pump?
I'll be running a loop with CPU/Mobo/RAM and then a separate loop for GPUs, this is my personal recommended option if you have the case space/$ for a dual loop.
It's not directly related to the triple tops, DDCs notoriously run hot (which reduces the life span) in low restriction loops. Three is just... so much power. Cavitation will eat those impellers like no tomorrow. Unless you have super grand plans and the triple tops fit into your loop perfectly, there's no benefit to it, only negatives.

Edit: hmmm, maybe triple loop
? Cpu to a 360, each gpu to their own 360 and the mobo and aquaero to the 280? Pastel in white, aqua and orange? Dang, I need to get this together and quit changing things!!!
Dear lawd no. That's a nightmare and would not be worth it. You'd really be fine with one DDC, a second if you want two loops. Don't do three.
