It may be overkill, but are you having fun doing it? That's what it is all about. I cool an i7 and 2 6870s in my loop with a rx360 and a rs240. However, I have ordered a rx120 to add to my loop. Is that over kill? Maybe. Am I having fun doing it? Yes! So, in my mind it's perfectly justified

The more overkill you go the slower and quieter fans you can use make it WORTH IT! Im about to put on a 9x120 rad just so i can put on the most useless fans so i dont have to hear my computer

so a total of 6 120x rad.. that would be way overkill yes.. you could cool all that with 1 RX360 or 480 with no problems

no such thing as overkill until you have less than a 1c delta
