    Im slightly confused - where is the pump in all that? At the top?

    In general i would have Pump>Rad>CPU>Res/T-line/Pump

    As for advice,buy the best CPU block and pump you can afford,make sure you have leak tested it for a few hours before installing and be prepared for hassle.Other than that you will be fine.

    it looks liek one of those gigabyte pumps :EEK:
    if you could put the pump at the bottom that rig would be almost text book

    no need for the 2 Rads TBH, specialy if thats one of those gigabyte pumps.

    No need for the single rad, flip the dual rad 180 to ease filling / bleeding and reduce tubing length.
    Positioning the pump / res on the bottom left would reduce tubing length even further and make filling easier.

    Any reason for not having a GPU block in as well?

    i thought u are meant to have the pump-cpu

    to give u maximum pressure going into the cpu block which gives best cooling, i dont think it will make a difference but alot of people say it does

    Text book !!
    you could make it more effective by using a single pass / crossflow radiator, your set up will be perfect for one mate !
    then you will be looking at one of the least restrictive loops out there !

    Much better, though still consider flipping the rad by 180 to avoid the air trap at the top, unless you are using a Thermochill rad and have easy access to the bleed valve (opposite end and face from the barbs). Will also ease the bend of the connection in to the res.

    I'd say its better to have Pump>Rad>CPU, then you are sure the coolest water is getting to your block :)

    no, you are unlikely to see any difference in such a small setup, but all Im saying is SURELY its better to be sure your blocks are getting the coolest water possible - and that is from the rad.

    The difference is only the heat dump from the pump - max of approx 0.5 degrees, better to keep the tubing as short as possible.

    Depends on what pump he got. If it's a 50w monster it would have a greater impact :D
