Hi, this is my first foray into water cooling. Here is my setup:

Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Temepered Glass Side panel
EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 Watt G3 Power Supply
Intel Core I7 7700K
Asus ROG Maximus IX Formula
EVGA Geforce GTX 1080 SC Gaming
Geil EVO Forza 16GB
MyDigital 240GB BPX NVMe SSD
4TB Seagate Baracuda
Gelid GC-Extreme Thermal Compound
EKWB EK-FC1080 GTX Nickel
EKWB EK-FC1080 GTX Backplate
EKWB EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM
EKWB EK-Supremacy EVO Nickel
Monsoon Free Center Hardline Compression Fittings, 1/2" x 5/8"
Monsoon PETG Hardline Tube 1/2 x 5/8 Clear
Black Ice Nemesis L-Series 360 Stealth Radiator
Black Ice Nemesis L-Series 240 Stealth Radiator
Mayhems Pastel Orange Concentrate

I am planning on routing the liquid as follows:

Pump/Res>360mm Rad> Processor> MB Water Block> 240mm Rad> GPU> Pump/Res

My main concern is if the D5 is good enough for this loop, or if I need to go to a dual loop setup? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum.

The loop doesn't matter, it doesn't matter what goes into what first. The reason behind it is the fact after few minutes the loop temp will be same in every part. Basically is how you want to make it look crazy.

for my first build which i finished it last month I made the loop like this (just for the look)
D5 pump/res > 240 UT60 > GPU > 360 UT30 > CPU > back to pump

now if u change the loop the temp wont change, it will be same

D5 pump is perfect and strong enough. I have mine set on speed "3" and its very fast and quiet. Plus my hard tubing is crazy, its craves around all the time. You can check it out in this forum:

Its called Hard Tubing and we got two kinds. Acrylic and PETG. Its easier to break Acrylics compare to PETG. PETG is easier to use. my system is mixed of two.
for bending and installation look up "hard tubing bend" on utube.

What about my rads? Haven't heard much on the black ice L series. Want to make sure they can take care of my CPU, you, and the vets on the mobo.

100 watts per 120x1 rad size. 9-12 FPI for max quiet. At 900 RPM fans. Black Ice L series. Dunno. If 30 FPI you can got 140 watts per 120x1, but need 2000 RPM fans. What is FPI? Dunno.....

Read a bit, learn about rads. What's the rush? It's your stuff. I can build it for you too........
