    what with the rush?

    patient...patient....patient!

    the 590 is not even availble to the retailers yet.

    The answer is YES & NO.

    It's depend on what temp you want to achieve for the GPUs, how you configure the cooling loop.
    The average 360x60mm rad can handle up 800w of heat load if you run the fans blazing fast at 3000rmp.

    Bulk estimate two 590s will dump 750w of heat. So if you want so head room then go with 480mm rad instead. Keep in mind GPU doesn't need to keep it cool as CPU, because as soon you put it on water the temperature will drop in half instancely and it's not constantly at load fulltime unless you're folding or gaming 24/7.

    BTW, my advise to investing an A/C to go with your room because two of these cards are also acting as space heater as well. They will keep you cozy in the winter and as a sauna in the summer.

    I've decided to use 360 for just 2x 590, and order D-14 for CPU.
