i have change my psu finaly, i buy a seasonic X-850 KM3.

Your temps are alright, certainly better than you can get with air cooling on the furnaces otherwise knownas Fermi, but I think you could definitely drop the temps into the 40s, probably low 40s, with some extra rad space.

I would also recommend that you stay away from Furmark or anything othertthan 3DMark or Heaven/Valley for stress testing, as the former justmakes uunnecessary heat while the latter two actually test the card in realistic scenarios.

I would say that adding another 240/280 rad to your loop would be ideal, but if you are running only two fans on yourccurrent radiator, then add two more for push pull. I will always recommend push pull on radiators, no exception, as it's necessary to fully utilize the cooling power of the rad.
2x 240/280 rads in push pull with good fans is going to be ideal, but I would still try push pull before buying another rad just to see the difference.
