The water temp in the system will be the same temp where ever you measure it. You may get a 0.5C difference, but most probably not.

Dual loops will reduce your pressure, and therefore higher temps are likely. In general make the loop the most convenient to you, and easiest for you to drain, and top up.
Oh sure, go ahead and bring PRACTICALITY into the discussion!

To get the most from your water cooler, remove the Res and replace it with a sealable T-Piece or as I did with a hosepipe splitter.
This will give higher pressure and reduce turbulence.

Give it a quick try by removing the res to see what benefit you will get.

Sorry my mistake,

Well in that case, you want a seperate pump, and loops, for each component.
Then put radiators before and after each pump so any possible heat from them isn't transmitted to the component.

Say:
these pumps: http://www.swiftnets.com/products/mcp350.asp
and these rads: http://www.swiftnets.com/products/mcr80-qp.asp

Dont forget putting a tap drain at the bottom of each loop, and a fill port at the top of each loop.

I've personally decided to not use the Res...

cool
To aid in topping up the water every 2 months or so, a hosepipe splitter is perfect for 1/2" tubing.
Filling with water is very easy by holding both tubes at the same height and pouring water in one of them.
Close the pipes quickly to minimise water loss.
A small amount of air is left in the system when the pipes are closed which has no noticable impact on performance.
