I am not sure it would make a difference, since the liquid reaches an equilibrium in temperature throughout the loop, no matter the order of radiators. Not completely sure, a DangerDen rep told me that.

You would notice a temp drop on your GPU and your flow would be just fine.

i can only afford a loop and a second rad, and the second rad would be the first step to a second loop. what should i do? two of the swiftech 320s or 1 black ice 360 gtx.

Ok, honestly I run the same pump with Pump>2x 240 rads> q6600 3.5> 8800gt> northbridge........

with all that on one loop i have no problems.

cpu idles at 35 at highest core, loads at 44.

gpu idles at 31 and loads at 36

north bridge doesnt change and is always 30.

Dont need two loops and in reality the water doesnt absorb heat fast enough to even disipate it if you put it inbetween the cpu and gpu.

i already bought that gpu water block, but thanks.

so just get one black ice 360 gtx? its better than two of the less expensive ones?

i don't know about better than the two swifty units, but it'll at least be the same. u'd have to check some review to be certain. sorry i can't name any off the top of my head.

If you're going with the BIX rad make sure you have the fans that can handle it. They need higher cfm than other rads.
