yes, but I rather have few degress less in my loop, especially when GTS is about the same price as EK slim rad.

Formerly this...

Was originally contemplating a new case due to the heat from the triple 780s causing issues, but ended up swapping to a 1080 with a full cover and keeping the 540. Super happy with the 1080 over the 3x 780s.

I already ordered one RX, Going to see if I actually need a second rad. I think one 60mm 240 might be enough.

My vote is for 960mm of rad space wink.gif. Check my build. But I agree, 240 is not enough no matter how thick.

I have about that much in my one PC.

Looking at 360 radiators now, I need something slimmer, since a 60mm will not fit in the front.

For now just a CPU (6700K) and GTX 1080.

I'll stand by EK. The PE is a great line of radiators and are performing great for me in this case. Temps on gpu are about 26c idle and high 30's under full load on an overclocked (2126Mhz) Strix 1080 OC
