I am about to add my water to the loop, but before I do I want to make sure I have it ordered right *I know order does not really matter* Should I be going from the cpu as an out to the radiator, and from the gpu as an out to the radiator or does it not matter if it is an intake from the radiator? If that doesn't make sense see below:


My Setup:
Reservoir--->pump--->radiator--->gpu--->radiator--->cpu--->reservoir

Alternative as radiator from outs:
Reservoir--->cpu--->radiator--->gpu--->radiator--->pump--->reservoir

More about : minute

The second option is better, the CPU always runs more cooler than GPU.

Ya option #2 is better, but is it worth buying another 6 feet of tubing?

Why not? I mean, you bought radiator, pump, CPU block, GPU block, fittings and thsoe stuffs...and want save money in 6 feet of tubing?

Performance will be a lot better that way? I'd buy it if there is a performance difference versus peace of mind if that makes sense.
