Default watercooling question

will a 360mm radiator + a 240mm be enough to cool an i7 unlocked ivy bridge cpu and 2 gtx 680's?? The reason I ask is because I'm thinkin about gettin the cosmos 2 case. Sorry this will be my first watercooled build.

Yes. The 360 would probably be more than enough, but adding the 240 in there will give you tons of cooling overhead.

That should be enough to cool it all with a HEAVY OC with zero noise, using high quality fans (GT).
