Hello, i need help figuring out the order that i should place my components in my custom watercooling build.

Before i start, my specs are (jic) :

AMD FX8350 8 Core CPU
16GB Corsair Vengeance RAM
XFX DD HD7950 3GB GPU
Asus Crosshair V Formula Z Mobo

Ive made a rough sketch of how the components will be placed, see below.

Also note that the CPU Waterblock and pump are combined with the swiftech Apogee Drive ii.

Radiator : Black Ice 360mm
Motherboard Waterblock : EK
CPU Waterblock : Swiftech Apogee Drive ii
Pump : Swiftech Apogee Drive ii
GPU Waterblock : Swiftech Komodo

You want to make sure your reservoir is higher up than your pump - that's the issue I was having with an Apogee in my Bitfenix Prodigy.

That's your choice, but try to make as short of connections as possible without crossing them.

I'd go Res > Pump > GPU > Motherboard > Radiator > back to Res.

Agree with DarkSable, that's how I would do it as well.
