1.) can 120mm radiator handle both cpu and gpu?

2.) which one is good
reservoir > gpu > radiator > cpu > reservoir ?
or
reservoir > radiator > cpu > gpu > reservoir ?

radiator position on back as exhaust and reservoir position on front

3.) can copper heatsink handle gtx 1050 ti vrm?
because i want to buy cheap water block, and i need heatsink for the vrms

thank you

  1. no
  2. loop order does not matter
  3. not sure I understand your question...handle what?
Cheap watercooling components might look appealing at first, but be aware that they might not be very good long term, especially depending on what materials are used in manufacturing.

i use 240mm for cpu (r5 1600x) and 280mm for gpu (1070ti)
temperatures under strestest doesnt go over 50C on both overclocked

u could start with what is your CPU?
btw u sure 1050ti needs water cooling? i used to have 1060 and with stock cooler it didnt went over 60C with silent fan mode

Likely going to have issue finding a full cover block for a 1060 or 1050, unless you plan to use a universal block, which makes sense when asking about the VRM cooling, which I assume you're just asking 'if that is a good idea', to which my answer is, 'yes, and absolutely needs to take place if you use a universal block'.

Also, don't forget your vRAM and MOSFETs.
