    If I do two 360 rads, is here efficiency gain in splitting the flow and doing two rads , then dumping both in the reservoir verses
    doing one then the next rad in series ??

    Best to do them in line (order doesn't matter) or have separate loops. :)

    its all pointing at one very over cooled cpu, or will be...
    in my new build...
    just picked up three fans .. some monster deltas super cheap... I like cheap, and have a line on a new used 360 rad..

    I've tried separate loops, split loops, parallel, chilled liquid cooling, etc...My advice to you is to build yourself a clean and uncomplicated loop.

    I have one inline loop with 2 360 rads, and it works well, only need 1 pump and 1 res.

    yep... I like to play with this stuff is all... im not even sure for one cpu the second rad is even going to make much difference.. both will be shrouded 360 black ice... one is low presure SR=1.. then another here is potentially selling me another black ice 360, not same model, and I picked up some fans even louder and higher airflow than my monster scythe fans.. some mean deltas.... and what a price.. double egghead discounting!!!
    so... two rads for one cpu? lol .. the new 4670k
    Im a sic dude with a fascination for pushing the envelope

    I reckon 2 rads for cpu only is unnecessary (especially if you grabbed some nice high static pressure fans) but it would be nice to have. :)

    well, I know I have no numbers since 07, but I hope to push the line with my new build... and I am competing solely with self....
    Im starting baseline testing.. first tim and intel stock cooler, then nicer air, may skip this...
    then de lidded, unless all cores similar temp and I can stress it without high temps.. yeh right, it as haswel! and then on to de lid and testing and then water testing .. its a toy

    next thought.. someone could make good money de lidding chips, heck I would pay for a de lidded chipping service that guaranteed not to break my cpu!

    Ah, I was assuming that you were going to cool something besides the CPU. Honestly, I don't see how having two 360 radiators is going to help over just one on a CPU, but good luck.

    right, its silly, even at high temps the second rad is over kill
