mobo: asus sabertooth z77
cpu: i5-3570k (will be OC'd)
ram: 16GB gskill trident
gpu: asus gtx680 directCU II TOP (plan for sli in the future)
psu: seasonic platinum 760 (need upgrade for sli?)

not gonna bother listing the ssd and hdd for my build unless you all need to know tongue.gif.

my question is this:
  1. xspc ax240 rad + phobya 200mm rad good enough to cool both the cpu and gpu?
  2. xspc ax240 rad + phobya 200mm rad good enough to cool both the cpu and gpu sli -- in the future?
  3. rad fans? thinking about using sliverstone ap123 or the older ap 121s (for the 240 rad), and the bitfenix spectre pro 200mm (for the phobya)

if the ax240 is insufficient to cool both the cpu and gpu, then i assume a 280mm rad (e.g., the black ice gtx 280) will be sufficient? i'm worried about the thickness of a 280mm rad compared to the ax240. i have, in my possesion, the xspc ax240 kit; however, if i need to upgrade the rad from the 240 to the 280, it shouldn't be a problem.

i would very much like all of your pro opinions. thanks much.
