Default Order of watercooling components?

I hear many theories on what is the best order of components for watercooling, but they are never followed up with any numbers

So, for those madshrimps that have watercooling, which order of the pump, radiator, reservoir, rad, blocks (gpu, cpu, northbridge) is best for you?

Is it better to have the radiator just before the CPU so that the water hits the CPU block at its coldest? or is it best to have the water pass thru everything and then hit the rad ???

Pump -> CPU -> OtherStuff -> Reservoir -> Pump

is how I achieved the lowest CPU temps

My setup:
Code:
CPU<--------double RAD | ^ NB | | | GPU+80W pelt | | | (little) Res------> pump (eheim1250)
I didn't notice any difference between the rad @ the end or @ the beginning (like it's now). I think it's only of importance when you use a bigger reservoir:
If you put the rad at the beginning, you're res will heat up slowly but your CPU/GPU will always have cool water no matter what. When you put your rad at the end, your res AND CPU/GPU will always have cool water, but, when you water is hot (eg. because you turned the radiatorfans of for an hour), it's very hard to cool it back to ambient temp.
