Seems like this would be a good time for those stackable radiators, granted I know nothing about water cooling.....

or get 2 360 feser rads

I believe I am going to try and push him into getting just one 295, and if that doesn't work, then the last resort option is to try and mount a 240 radiator off the back, so it would go like this:
MCP-655 -> GTX 360 -> CPU block -> GTX 240 on the back -> GPU 1->GPU2->reservoir -> back to pump.

A little bar graph will pop up on the bottom, thats your rad out water temp to room ambient. You want to keep that at 5C and under for decent OC'ing performance. Theres a shroud option in there to, shrouds will give you up to a 20% performance gain if you have the room for them.
I don't know the Delta RPM but a 86cfm Pana is 2000 and the 115cfm Pana is 2750 RPM.
The 480 calc will at least give you and idea of how a 360 will perform, maybe use a 360 and tuck a 120 in somewhere if you can get away with it.
