This comes down to using the right fans/rad for the intended goal: low noise or max cooling? Op needs to figure this one out for himself. Imo, the rx is a superior setup for my noise sensitive ears.
My bad I was looking at cpu only values. But for reference..

GTX
600 30.03
1000 17.02
1400 9.53
1800 6.76 (RASA finally loses out)
2300 5.77
2800 3.98

Rasa
600 18.16
1000 12.57
1400 9.31
1800 7.77 (GTX Takes over)
2300 6.30
2800 5.52

Also GTX 275 full load is 257 watts.
6970 full load 306

Note those are non oced values.

Vcore is 1.296v. My ambients are atrocious...I'm talking 78-79F (living in S. FL blows). Airflow in the case is um...well it's an 800D...there's really only one intake fan.

When you guys say rasa rads...are you talking about the RS series from XSPC?

Im not sure how much a rx480 will help with your ambs so high it takes air to cool the rads and with the ambs so hot only so much it can do. You could try changing your rad fans to intake and make your case intake a exhaust and see if that helps. xspc rasa rx or xspc rasa rs rads.

That's the plan...I'm switching cases from an 800D to a Dangerden Tower 26 Black series. The rad is hung on the front of the case and will be intaking air instead of exhausting it.

I was just curious if people have found a 480 rad to be generally sufficient for a CPU and dual gpu loop.

Also with a RX360 and AP-15s I can cool my 5970 (950/1200) and 930 (4.2) temps creep into the low 70's with an ambient of about 24c. But I also pull my air from the inside of my case which is warmer than my rooms ambient temp. Generally I say 1.5 rad spaces to each block you are cooling. So an additional 120/240 would help your temps as you are looking for 4.5 rad spaces.

Thanks man. That's all the confirmation I need. A similar cpu w/ dual gpus being cooled sufficiently by a 360 exhausting. I'd double rep you if I was that nice!

Be careful w/ those size screws, I punctured my RX480 using 1-1/4" screws. Per XSPC, its 30mm length #6-32 screws, its very close to 1-3/16. To be safe use some washers to cut about 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch off those 1-1/4" screws. Be gentle with the turns. Some 30mm, or 1-3/16", or 1-1/8" #6-32 screws would be ideal. But, they're hard to come by and pointless if you can just add a washer or two to the 1-1/4" screws that are very common and inexpensive.

I have a third and useless RX480 that has six punctures. Learn from my mistake.

Anyways, both of my new RX480 work admirably using medium speed yates (max rpm is 1200-1300 per the fan controller). I love their massive size

Give 'em to me, I know a good brazer fix that up in 5 mins. Of go to any tranny shop, them boys fix rads all day long. Guess what cools trannies?

Wow...never knew that. I've been cranking down 1.25" screws on this rad for 2 years now and never punctured it. Guess I've been really lucky. Double washers from here on out. Thanks for the info!

You wanna eye ball it at least or pull out the ruler before you mount it.
