anybody have the AMD plate kicking around for their Apogee GT waterblock?

it'd be cool if you could trace and upload it for me so i could get my buddy to cut one out for me.

Also, i have my Seidon 240m cooling my CPU. But i was just gifted everything I need for a custom loop. Should I use my AIO cooler for my gpu or cpu, using the other loop for the other uncooled one? that's worded horribly, but i think you get what i'm saying.

Or should I run both of them in the loop and just move the AIO cooler to another build or stash it away for a while.

I'm thinking if I use both, that will do a better job of cooling, as I won't have the GPU heat in the loop trying to cool my CPU. My understanding is that if you add another source of heat that your entire loop gets warmer. This could be negated by having 2 separate loops, correct? Another reason i'm considering this is because I was given a 120mm rad that wouldnt be enough to effectively cool the 2 components, or is it more capable than i'm assuming?

A 120mm rad is barely enough to cool one of them, let alone both. Also, graphics cards have more than one thing to cool; it's not just the GPU die.
3570K (4.8 GHz) | Dual-X 7970 | ASRock Z77 OC Formula | Corsair Vengeance 2x 4 GB | WD Black 1 TB | Corsair TX750 | XSPC Raystorm 750 RS240 Kit | NZXT Phantom

my video card's heatsink doesnt have any contact with anything but the GPU. As long as there's sufficient airflow over it, i'm not too concerned. I'll be attaching some heatsinks to them with thermal tape when the time comes.

are you saying the 120 is barely enough to cool one of them based on your experience with your kit and CPU? cuz i'm running a phenom 2. They aren't nearly as hot. My seidon 240m keeps it under 45c 98% of the time.

The convention is to have 120mm for every CPU or GPU.
Intel Core i7 3820 | EVGA X79 SLI K2 | MSI 7950 Twin Frozr III | Samsung / 840 120GB / 8GB RAM | 1TB WD Caviar Blue | Corsair / 550D / H70 | Silencer MKIII 600W

in that case i'll be attaching the 240m to the video card.
