Radiator size and type

Hello OCN, once again i have to ask you something because im not sure if my solutions to my problems are correct.

Got to cool ryzen 5 3600 and GTX 1660 ti with magicool 30mm G2 360 radiator. Goal is to have silent operation with enough cooling capacity for moderate overclock of both CPU and GPU. Ive aleady grabbed 7 silent wings 3 for my inwin 303 case that i dont plan to change.

The radiator was able to cool i7 3770k with GTX 970. Both overclocked. However it was dobę with different fans - enermax TB silent (kickass fans). CPU was cooled by heatkiller 3.0 LC and some GPU core only heatkiller. And it was doing it quite well.

Sould i change the radiator for some little less dense model? It was doing more than fine with higher TDP gear and overclocked but with different fans. Maybe i should also add one 120 radiator on the back? Will those SW3 fans be similar to old enermax tfans in terms of silence and airflow/air pressure performance? Which CPU block should i get? Im looking at some Barrow blocks. Not asking for GPU because there is only one for my GPU.

Its probably fine, the 3600 and 1660Ti aren't particularly high power parts, a 360mm G2 should handle them easily enough.

The Silent Wings 3 are probably some of the the best noise to performance fans you can get, I haven't seen a trustworthy reviewer that reviewed both, but I'd say its fairly safe to say the SW3's are very likely to be at least as good as those TB Silent's, if not better.

thought so, but wanted to be double sure.

What about CPU block? Anyone used that? Optimus blocks are hard to get on PL

I have the In WIN 303 & 7x SW3 High-speed myself.

Do know that the rear 120mm fan mount can be incompatible with Be quiet SW3. The fans won't fit I found out in my situation. Just a little too large to go into the tight space there.
But it could be because my I/O shield cover on the motherboard is intruding unto the fan space area. Regular old-style 120mm fan fits but not the SW3.

And know above ~1500rpm they aren't silent any more. They might be best noise/performance around but no fan is silent ~1500rpm. You want them down to ~1000rpm for silence.
I tend to see the system get a little too hot for preference at those low speeds.
