If you were to do that there is no way you would be putting enough water through each BIP to notice the restrictive effects of the channels.
I will be using 2 BIP-360 Rads. My plan was to run them in parallel, so thanks for the assurance. For the external rig I wanted to do something a little different & use copper pipe, instead of the usual plastic tubing used by most. I'll use 22mm pipe to make the connections to the pump with the rest of the runs in 15mm.
I've drawn up a sketch in paint for you to show how I intend to plumb it all in. I have'nt shown it in the sketch but the kit will all be fitted in to a custom made clear perspex box. The reservoir you see I have already made out of clear perspex too.
I feel that this rig will be more than capable of cooling 2 PC's, so the finished rig will have 2 inlets & 2 outlets using 1/2" barbs.
I'll start a fresh thread in the project log area when I get time to compile the pictures.
