Have a look in the 750D club to see what rads can be used and the mods it would take,for a 420 rad with 140mm fans there i a write up on the first page of how to do this....If you are into modding the case you can use 2x420's or 360's....

I didn't realize the 420 was wider not longer, that would work fine, but you can't have a long powersupply if you are planning on putting a 240 in the bottom slot, I have a hx1050 and it is to long to fit with another 240

1.When going for radiator get the most surface space you can.
2.Get the thickest it can be while still having push/pull. If it's under 40mm thick and low fpi it doesn't need push/pull and will hardly, if at all, benefit from it.
3.When matching fans for radiators: High fpi = High speed fans and vice versa.
Finally, for now a 420 up top with nice fans will cool your CPU and likely 2 GPUs. You'll more than likely need more for that triple xfire though.

that's exactly what i wanted to know. At this point I only have the 2500k and ONE 290 r9. I was hoping that i would cover my basis if down the line i decided to crossfire with a 2nd 290.

Would you happen to know what the best rad would be to fit in the top of the 750d in order to benefit from the allocated space? for instance would a specific 360 or 420 be best suited for my purposes?

thanks!

if you can fit a 420, use it.

360 = 120x 3x 120 = 43200 square mm of surface
420 = 140x 3x 140 = 58800 square
480 = 120x 4x 120 = 57600 square

a 3x 140mm rad is bigger than a 4x 120 rad.

I would go with a 30mm/420 (no mod required) top push or pull and a 280 front push/pull rad....A 45mm/420 would require a small mod to the 5.25 bay,you can find the info on how to do it here http://www.overclock.net/t/1430077/corsair-750d-owners-club page 1,called Mounting a 420 Radiator....

If you go with a 360 rad depending on size you can go push/pull....With a 35mm/360 push/pull.with a 45mm/360 push or pull and with a 60mm rad push or pull you would have to offset the rad closer to the side of the case with the window,but for the fact you are going with 290;s in the future a 420 and 280 would be just fine for you....
