Currently I have an i5 750 and a GTX 480 in a single loop. Could/Would it be wise to add another GTX 480 to the loop? My single card runs at a steady peak temperature well under the maximum rated for my tubing during a FurMark benchmark (Maximum settings + burn). I know most would recommend adding another radiator for something like this, but I am curious if I could pull off cool temperatures on my 360mm with 2 cards and the CPU just so I don't have to sell and buy radiators.

Side note: May be upgrading to the 2600k within the next few months. Unsure whether it would run hotter or cooler than my current i5 750. As of right now, clock and voltages are at stock on my CPU after a RAM upgrade (been lazy) and a minor OC on my GTX 480 (matches the hydro edition)

Any questions needed about my rig not included in my sig feel free to ask.
