My current setup I have a RX360 > Res/pump > CPU I plan on getting a 7990 and getting a water block and was wondering on suggestions for my loop cause I'm thinking of doing another 360 rad but getting a EX360 and was wondering if it should be

RX360 > Res/Pump > CPU > EX360 > GPU or if I should just do a seperate loop specifically for the GPU.

Your current RX360 will sufficiently cool your 2600k and a 7970, if that's what you meant. You will want to add at least 120mm if you are actually talking about the 7990 when it comes out.

^This.

About the second loop, I would probably just make one loop with pumps in serial for redundancy when the time comes. I hear a GPU only loop is more trouble than it's worth, but don't have any firsthand experience in that matter (yet!)

Yeah I meant a 7990 been Saving up for it, so with the extra 120 where should I mount it in this setup.

If you have an M8 currently, only you would know the best place. At that point, I would go with your original plan and just add another 360 as a 120 would look....silly

The order in the loop really doesn't matter. If you can easily tube it between blocks, the block after the rad will see about a 1C water temperature difference. Not much to worry about unless it's an easy run
