in theory 2x 240 rad estate is sufficient for your proposed setup so a 360 with a 240 gives you a sufficient breathing room to slow down. you could add a 140 for even more breathing room and really low RPMs but it is unneeded (though its OCN here so it is up to you tongue.gif)

only question is what kind of a 30mm 360 rad do you own? a high fpi one, medium or low? it is a difference but for your case it won't affect anything that much if at all. (maybe 4C max but don't quote me on that)

edit: didn't see those other few comments so i guess you got your answer already smile.gif

Meisseli

magicool you say? (so you have a medium 16 fpi rad which is great for around 1500 rpm fans and its great heat dissipation for a thin 360 rad which isn't ultra air restrictive)

you'll be more than fine with temps thumb.gif (and what fans are you using on the rads?)


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
btw, i am in a similar situation: i have a 7950 with a 7970 ref pcb and i plan to get soon a second card (probably at the 8xxx launch biggrin.gif ) and the huge problem is to get a card which the water block would be the same. so either find a good 7950 & 7970 compatible block, or find another 7950 with a 7970 pcb which isn't available to me at my country anymore frown.gif or get a 7970 and run a hybrid CF setup.)
