Hi guys, I would buy a new case and have a very silent configuration: specifically a Corsair 780T, I would like to know if i can install 2 ek xe360 and if these radiators are enough for a 4770k and 2 780ti(in the future it will change to pascal). im currently running on 2 480 monsta but i need a smalleer case.
I will use 6 noctua nf f12 pwm for radiators in pull configuration(top exhaust, front intake), 1 nf s12a pwn on bottom intake and a nf a14 pwn on back exhaust.
the pump i see is an ek d5 reservoir combo, It is quiet or should I look for another one?
There seems a good configuration? the radiators are fine for those fans? or should I use 2 hw labs sr-2?
Or cooltek w2 and a mo-ra 3 420 positioned away from the pc desk, it would be a bad idea?
priority is a quiet pc without losing too much performance.
thank you in advance guys.

Buckeyes!
Corsair website tells you what rads would fit in the case.

Radiator Mount Locations
Front: 240/280/360mm
Top: 240/280/360mm
Rear: 120/140mm
Bottom: 240mm

Seems like you are set there.

As far as for 2 780Ti's and 4770K.. that amount of rad and push pull will be fine. That is around 588W stock fully loaded.

What do you think is better? Corsair with 2 sr-2 or cooltek/mo-ra 3 420? which fans / pumps are the quietest?

The Corsair fans aren't all that quiet. Before I went geothermal I had 8 BeQuiet fans on my rads. They were very quiet and pumped tons of air. You should go for a variable speed pump if you're wanting quiet.
