i was wondering if my water cooling set up will work efficiently, or if i need improvements. i'm planning on water cooling these components:
i7-3820 GeForce GTX 670 (gigabyte windforce)
the case i'm going to use is the SilverStone Raven 1 full tower. the water cooling products i plan to use are:
180mm radiator bitspower tank z-multi 250 inline reservoir (BP-WTZM250P-IRDBK) koolance CPU-370SI cpu block ek-FC680 (since the gtx 670 windforce uses the same pcb as the 680 reference i chose this) danger den DD-CPX Pro pump
the order i was thinking to do was: reservoir > pump > cpu > gpu > radiator
will this set up be able to cool my cpu and gpu? my budget for water cooling goes to $400 (CAD) and that includes sleeving materials for my psu.

You're looking at a 360mm rad setup, 180mm is not enough.
so then i would have to buy 2x180mm rads correct? my chosen case (thankfully) has 2 spots for 180mm fans which come with the case.
but then how would i do my loop with two radiators?
Why not go with 1 280mm?
my case comes with these fans, and no other mounting points: 2x180mm (about a hands length away from each other) 1x120mm top fan
i also have no intention of modding (other than painting strips of red on the front).
I would go: reservoir>pump>1st radiator>cpu>2nd radiator>gpu>reservoir
sounds good. but i have one more concern. how much power would i need to run my system? i7-3820 (i will overclock) ASUS Rampage IV Formula GeForce GTX 670 Corsair Vengeance 4-channel 8gb kit Water Cooling set up
