Snerps setup is the same as mine,only difference is Tline/Res. And suicide mayne,your crazypc link is a tline,you just route the tubing on either side,and then a tube to the top of the case.

Alright....PUMP-->RADIATOR-->PRIMARY GPU-->SECONDARY GPU-->T-LINE-->PUMP. Having the T-line between the gpu blocks would restrict your flow too much. If you insist on tubing it that way, use Y fittings...they don't restrict flow as much. Also, sinve you are using 68's, i would reccommend DangerDen NV-68s,,,they woud rectify the flow problem between the vidcards and they are highly efficient.

EDIT: Use a t-line, not a res. They are cheaper and IMO easier to bleed since they do it on the fly. After you first start your setup, leave your T-line elevated and uncovered for @ least 48 ours top bleed the system (while the pump is running of course). has a great T line makup in their guides that i use myself. Never had a bleeding/filling/spillag problem with it. and it looks really clean, and since i have a mid-tower, it doesn;t eat up the space of a res.

Place the T line on the pumps inlet,That allows for easier filling and bleeding.

As far as order of components the "Best" set up is one where you have the least tubing and the least amount of bends,avoid the hype of rad placment,It will only result in a max of 0.5c lower temps and that can not increase performance even 1Mhz..A chip at 37c can not overclock any better then if it was at 37.5c . . So just set it up as eaily and efficiently based on tubing issues.

Also Using Y Fittings reduces flow and should be avoided.And I hope you are using a dual 120mm rad because that will handle 2 GPU and 1 CPU ,I know this from experence running 2 Xeon 2.4 @ 3675 each and a 6800 ultra.

you should take the Ts out because they will slow the flow down.

I would think it best to have two seperate loops or at least two rads your gonna have alot of heat in your loop.
