Where should I go next with my water cooling?

Hey guys, so some changes have happened over the past few weeks, and just curious what other part should I get to make my setup better with cooling? Been debating on a 2x 360mm Radiator for the bottom and top and leaving the front open for airflow with 3x 140mm or adding another 360 there. Not sure whether I should add a block to the GPU or not. Right now I have 480mm on the side pushing hot air out of the case so that the GPU gets fresh cool air from the front. Any advice or tip appreciated. Thanks!

Was going to say, I'll light your money on fire, lol....

If you're doing it to do it, let's go! But if you're doing it to expect a significant change in temps or raising an overclock, I dont think the juice is worth the squeeze.

No overclocking I am just going for silence if possible meaning the lower I can run the fans the better for at least an hour or two. I still get some ramping here and there even with a curve added to the setup using the Fan Control app from GitHub.

Your fans. Set your fans to low and not ramp up, period.
Ok, I configure it a bit this morning will use it like that and see if the temps stay low. I may drop one more rad like a 360mm eventually so that I can put the GPU on a loop later on. However that GPU seems to be running just fine as is so maybe none of that will happen. I will only know once I do some rendering or gaming later on today to see if the new configuration will work great for me. Thanks, guys! Hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
