    The answer is yes it will keep it cool but like they said a 360 would be better. Since you cant use the 360 2 240s will work fine.

    Since you can't use a 360 at the front, you can fit a slim 240 at the top, no more then 30mm thick; bottom, you can fit a 60mm 240 and that should be good cooling at stock to mild OC, but anything higher than 4.2GHz, voltages will need to be raised and the Haswell chips run warmer. So it may be ok, but depending on how picky you are with temps, it will be up to you to determine, but the GTX660Ti's don't create allot of heat, its only the Haswell chip you have to worry about.

    If you configure it right (without mods), you can fit a 240 top and bottom and a 140mm rad at the rear.
    I originally had a 360mm Front, 280mm top, and 240mm at the bottom.

    Or if you want, You can buy some brackets, and you can still get around to using 3x240mm rad, front, top and bottom, but you lose the hard drive rack.

    I was cooling a 8350 OC to 4.8GHz, and 2 6950s flashed to 6970 and voltage unlocked. Created a bunch of heat.
    But I have since changed things around and the system has been taken apart.

    Here are some pics of how I did it.

    Hey Kenny. he's using a dual bay Res. I also think he would be fine using two 240 Rads.

    With such a small overclock 2-240's would be fine. 1 top, 1 bottom. Haswells do create a lot of heat when OC'd. Are you doing separate loops? or one continuous loop
