Hello,
is it better to "daisy chain" from cpu to vga or run a splitter from the rad?

First... Thank you for serving in the United States of America military. As a proud citizen of the USA... I thank you!!

Now you question... I would "daisy chain" from CPU to GPU, instead of running the splitter from the radiator. This way you system has one continuous flow through the process versus two different flows.

^+1. It's an absolute no no for splitting up the flow. That kills your flow rates.

The ideal set up will be to have 2 loops.

If you can't do 2 loops:
res>pump>CPU>220/320 rad>GPU>320 rad.

Do you think that just one pump can push such a loop? Would the Koolance PMP-450 or the Swiftech MCP355 be strong enough to push adequate pressure through two waterblocks and two radiators?
