Default Cooling for a I7 920

Ok I'm in the stage to prepare my 920 for folding, I have here 1 swiftec 2x120 rad with build in reservoir and also a swiftech 1x120 with a reservoir too. so it give me the equivalent of a swiftech 3x120

do you thing is enough to cool my 920 or I better set for a better rad, I have a quad one , but It will be last resort I keep it for my Mozart

I want to add that i don't like high temps, we talk about 4ghz OC here.

it will be in the garage. in that room the temp is 10'C now but in summer it will rise , I may just have to change the rad at that time.

Actually I'm thinking to put the rad in a tank with running water in summer. I just have to throw a water pipe in the lake and remove it in fall. my wife will even be able to use it for water her plants.

the water at the bottom of a lake is always at 4'C ( if the lake is deep enough ) the more the water is cold the more heavy ( dense it is ) until it reach 4'C under than get a little bit less dense. But I will use a Pump , I don't want it run 24/7 it will cost to much in electricity, and over heating too, I can not throw a submersible pump in the lake, It can be too dangerous if someone cut the electric wire. I don't want also condensation, so I will adjust the flow for keep the tank may be at 20'c . don't know I will experiment, not to much info on that on the web
