Yes, yes and yes. T-line is great, trust me. Get good tubing and the worm drive clamps...you will be happy you did. Zip ties and those junky plastic ones are a leak waiting to happen.I would go with a t-line instead of a reservoir. Less hassle when filling and draining.
Use thick walled tubing for less kinking, and worm drive hose clamps. The plastic clamps aren't strong enough when you have high pressure pumps.
I have actually tried this and it makes minimal difference; maybe 1C if you run through your GPU first, then CPU ->NB. There is so much flow that your temps really don't manage to get very high to effect the next chip in the loop. The thermal capacity that the copper blocks pull off the chips vs. the thermal capacity that water can carry is quite impressive, which is why even under load, you don't see a large spike in temps. If anything, your entire system would rise 1-2C over time vs. 1 component being much hotter than the other. You are always going to be limited by your heat exchanger's (radiator) ability to expell the heat from the coolant anyway, which is why quality components perform much better.So, if your CPU is first in line than the heat from it will compound with the heat from the first gpu. The second GPU will then have to deal with the heat from the CPU and the GPU before it.
