You could get away with a single XSPC RX360, or 2x 2x120 rads of your choice...either would work. Depending on your overclocks, this should suffice with some 1500-1800rpm fans.

560ti 170watts @stock speeds (x2)
i5 2500k 95watts @stock speeds
437watts (most 3x120 rads handle 500-550 watts or so with good fans on a 10C delta-T)

It also depends on your case, and where you want to mount them.

What is your budget? Have you read the WC sticky? (linked in my sig below)

thanks for the quick answer. im not sure how ill build my setup yet. got a one hundred ice
you can see it on the thread : http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/271216-29-watercoolin...
but since you are talking about a 3x120 ill probably fit the rad outside on top or behind.

wc sticky is a great thread btw.

Thank you for the kind words. I try to keep it updated and add information that I think would help. I am open to additions that anyone feels would be good to include. I don't claim to know everything about watercooling..in fact, far from it. But, if I don't know the answer, I'll try to find out.
