Dude if you want to get to 4G you really need to consider that you may need to chill your water somehow.
It's a 3ghz chip, 4 ghz is an easy overclock for it.
I was running a 1200mhz overclock on my e6600 for about a year...
How does the workload change on the pump according to loop order? As long as the res or t-line feeds the pump inlet IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE ON ORDER.
I'll say it again, LOOP ORDER DOES NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Basically put the loop into your case however it fits with the best tubing routing.
Whether the water goes through the radiator right before or right after the cpu it still winds up dissipating the same amount of heat.

Because the water temperature is fairly even throughout the loop, order isn’t important. The rule of thumb is to set things up to minimize the number of sharp bends and the total length of tubing. Avoid 90-degree elbows whenever possible! They kill flow and make the pump work harder.
"While the pump can introduce heat by effectively being submerged, the flow rate of the water is such that it makes little difference. Remember, while most pumps aren't submerged, the coolant still passes through it. The water is in the pumps vicinity for such a tiny amount of time, it results in making no difference in reality.
In short, if you have differing temps at different parts of the loop, your flow rate is not high enough. "
