duel loops are fun, but as you said it can get hectic.
On the other hand, the case is pretty open and spacious.
just to confuse you more lol

I think it will be way too messy and not required. A single series loop will be MUCH tidier and quieter. DDC's are a b.tard to get quiet.

I personally use a single D5 in Orca and its on setting 2 - you dont need a mega pump set up very often

tbh the 10w ddc i for in the ek ddc heatsink is pretty quiet, by the sound of things it's going to be a D5.

does anyone here have an exp on the XSPC photon 270 D5?

EDIT: thanks for your input guys keep 'em coming

A single d5 will be plenty indeed. I'm running cpu, 2 gpu and 2 460 60mm rads on one EK d5 pump which is set to speed 2/5. Nice and quiet and plenty of flow too Double loops look nice, but it's more something you should do in huge cases such as a Caselabs SMA8 imho
