I would assume my loop could handle a second Titan, but I wouldn't be surprised to see them hitting 60C if I did. But I do run a low pump speed (2/5), though that doesn't matter much as it's probably better to let the hot liquid sit in the rads for a little bit longer, and all my fans are on fan controllers to the lowest speed. I prefer a very quiet system that doesn't change noise with load.
50ºC as gpu temp or as water temp?
And, BTW, the comment regarding the water speed and and time spent in the rad is blatantly false. It doesn't matter how fast the water goes, it will spend EXACTLY the same time in the radiator. ALWAYS. Let me create an example:
We have a car, that is 4m long. And a race track, that is 240 m long. The start line is 4 meters long. If the car does 1 lap/minute, the car spends 1 seconds in the start line. If the car does 2 lap /hours, the car spends 0,5 seconds in the start line... PER LAP. At 2 laps/hour, you spend... the exact same minutes you spent before.
The reason you want more flow in your loop is because flow alters the way water takes and delivers heat, not because of the speed itself.

I doubt it we will see 20nm in Q2, seriously. Just look at what AMD did: do you think they are bringing their top dog this far away in 28nm so that they have to release something new in 5 months? No way. I don't expect a competitor to this Hawaii on AMDs side until 9-12 months....
