My System Specs

Default

Depends on the amount of heat generated. An average 120mm radiator can dissipate approx. 200W of heat, for example the Corsair H-50. A stock Core i7 920 is 130W. So in theory a dual 120mm radiator could dissipate 400W of heat. However I use the term "dissipate" lightly meaning that the temps may not be phenomenal. A Dual is fine for a CPU only loop, if you're adding GPU's later you'll probably need a triple.
