I vote for whichever loop layout is more convenient as far as routing the tubes, as long as it follows...res->pump> rad...before the CPU

any way you can toss that 2nd one(120) and just make it to 2x 240's?

no unfortunatly im on a tight budget and the stacked rad was gifted to me, so i would use it, and not spend anymore money.

why are the stacked rads, a waist?

im not cooling the q6600, im doing a major overhaull,

i got a evga x58 3sli, i7-920 d0, 6gb patriot ram
