Hey guys, I'm thinking about throwing my 580 back on water along with another 580 in the future. Here is my part list:

2 x EK 580GTX+
XSPC RS360
Swiftech MCP350
XSPC Liang DDC Reservoir
3 x High Speed Yate Loons in a pull configuration

Now, what I'm wondering is will this keep my 580's under or around 60-65c on full load with a hefty overclock? My ambient temps during the summer are usually around 30c.

Get a RX 360 At least, the RS360 won't be enough and personnally I would go Push/pull configurations so 6 fans

I might just try it out first instead of investing in a new rad just yet. If i'm unhappy with the performance, i'll just get an rx 360 like you said. Thanks for the input!

When I had my cpu + gpu loop, it went pump/res>gpu>rs360>cpu>rs240>pump/res and I was getting load temps in the 50's for my 580. So, I doubt that using sli with a loop like that will prove very effecient. That's why I'm splitting them up, gpu's can take a higher air/water delta than cpu's can. As long as my gpu's don't go over 70c, i'll be happy.

They both have excellent, the RX360 is thicker with wider fin spacing so it does better with low-speed fans. If size is an issue the RS360 will do just fine.

Space is a bit of an issue, since I will have the 360 hanging off the back of my case, so the thicker the rad, the more it sticks out from the wall.

I actually already have one ek block and the rs360 rad. And i've never had any problems with ek personally, so until then I'll keep using their products. Btw, i'm using a copper block, not nickel.

I think you will see pretty good temps on a GPU dedicated loop with the 360 Rad mounted externally. I dont think you will see temps close to 70c with SLI 580's.
