WC sticky has this info:

Specifically, this part:

In short, that's more than enough, but it really depends on your plan to overclock (or not) and any future loop plans.

Looks to be fine,

Normally I reccomend 240 worth of rad for CPU and MOBO and a further 240 worth of RAD for a decent GPU.

so with the single 480 you got it covered.

I would do a 240 rad for the cpu and a 360 rad for everything else.
