FX-8350@4.7gHz R9 280x watercooling

Hello my fellows of Tom's hardware. I need some help with my upcoming build. Im planning a single loop GPU and CPU with HEAVY overclocks. Im planning on doing a dual 240mm radiators for the system and wondering if that will be enough.

Stats:
FX-8350@ 4.7 1.44V stable
R9 280x 1.18v 1140mHz stable (i think)
Kingston 1600mHz 2x8 (16GB)
Corsair 400r
MSI 990FX GD-XXX V2 (newest board)

EDIT: is SLI worth it?

    That should be fine. My system is cooled by a single EK 360mm PE w/ 6 Corsair SP120s. I have a FX 8150 OC'd @ 4.7GHz (48c max) and a R9 290 @ 1200MHz (44c Max.) Unless you're gaming at 1440p or above I wouldn't worry about CrossFire.
  2. What wattage are the radiators rated for?

    what wattage will the system burn under load?

    There is no such thing as a "wattage rating" because there are too many other variables but 120mm per block is the general rule of thumb. At peak my system pulls about 750 watts.
