Default Increasing Watercooling Loop performance...?

How would I do that?

I know you can just get the best possible radiator and two super fast fans to push air through it, but what else?

I've already got one of the best pumps out there, the D5 Laing

Would getting two radiators decrease overall liquid temperature? What about two pumps?

D5 Laing Pump

Generic Dual 3.25" Drive Bay UV Blue Acrylic Resorvoir

EK-Supreme Universal CPU Waterblock

1/2" UV Blue Primochill Tubing

UV Blue Pure Primochill Coolant

X-Flow Xtreme 2 Radiator

I was thinking of adding a double pass extended 80, 92 or 120mm radiator to the back of my PC as an exhaust along with the existing dual 120mm radiator... that would only run me ~30 - 50 and wouldn't do much besides make the case look a bit nicer (albeit smaller) and possibly even cool the water a couple degrees during load

Petra's Tech Shop

Replace your X-Flow with that and you should be able to decrease temps a few degrees.

replace the x-flow and maybe switch from a res to a T-line? I think they provide a little more performance over a res with just cooling the CPU(no GPUs).
