Want to add a block to my gtx 480
 
Those 2 parts are WC ; I7-920 co stock + NB ( no restriction here )
TFC Xchanger Ė 360
I want to add a block to my gtx 480 do I need to add a rad ?

Depends on the fans you are using, but likely not.

thanks...... it's far more easy to change 3 fans or add 3 more than find a place for another rad.

I've got a HK 3.0, NB block and GTX 470 running off a TFC 360 with no issues.

Ok let assume the draw is = to the heat produce ( I know itís not the case but we have to start some place), I will use a i5-750 instead
GTX 480 near 300 watts
i5-750 OC at 4.0 ghz 169 watts
If I use my fezer 360 for my GTX, I guess I will be ok with a dual rad for my i5-750 , right ?
We are talking dual loop here, do I really need a dual loop, the way I see it I can install a single rad in serie with the first one, so many options, so many choices

I don't think you'll need a dual loop. I run a 920 at 4.2 GHz with a Heatkiller, and a GTX470 at 750mHz with an EK FC block on my TFC360 with 3 Scythe S-Flex 1900 rpm fans. As long as you are using higher CFM fans I think you'd be fine on a single triple rad.

A Feser 360 would be MORE than enough for what you're doing. On average PA120.3 and Feser 360 are optimal at 400-500W of load with moderate fans like Yate loons.
Now counting in that heat produced is a large fraction of the power drawn, it's good enough

You don't need a dual loop. Just add the block and you're good to go

Thanks Sugar, I will try it and if I need, I can always install a single Fezer inside de case on the 120 exhaust over the I/O plate

Hey guy...... just finish to install my EK on my GTX 480, run find and cool, 28 iddle and 43'c with OCCT and the paste is not yet cure. I see no need to add a second rad ..... only one sad thing, the case look empty without the air cooler :shok: , I need a seconf GTX ..... :sad:
