Any help would be nice!
you can use a Y-splitter to cool both cpu and gpu at the same time

ooh hey thats a good idea! I didn't want to have the heat gun sitting in there, would melt any wires in no time XD i'll remember that.

Bad idea, you then have half the pressure going through each which will just further kill your pressure form the restriction generated by each block. As well as any restriction caused by the Y fitting itself.

It is much more efficient to run them in a series and just do away with Y fittings.

i know but he wanted to furthur cool off his gpu. if he had a fairly powerful pump, losing the pressure shouldn't be a problem with Y fittings. it's not efficient but as long as it works
