I was wondering if a eheim 1048 pump along with my cpu block, gpu block and a northbridge block and radiator will cause a flow rate drop that will not get me low enough temps to O/C my xp1800. I'm pretty sure it'll be okay, but I need opinions to sway me. I'm thinking about getting a pretty decent water block.

CPU and GPU block should generally be alright in series, but adding that NB block is gonna really hurt your flowrates. If you ran the GPU and NB on a different circuit, or when CPU --> GPU/NB in parallel it might work better.

Well, I'm running an Ehiem 1048 with a RBX and a Maze4GPU.
When I added the GPU WB the temp did not change at all! I'm still rocking on 3c above case temp, sometimes 2c.
