Watercooling 5970s

I'm thinking of watercooling a pair of 5970s, would a 480 rad cool them both, if not what size would be best?

Anything below what they are at the mo, which is about 90C on load. Maybe a max temp of 75C?

So a 480 in other words? At a pinch, I might change my CPU cooling (which is overkill at the mo) from a 240 and a 480 to just a 360, then put the GPUs in a 480 + 240. I'm not one hundred percent set on the idea yet as it is a bit of a pain and very expensive, but the 5970s are begging to be clocked, and 900/1200 clocks in the summer is getting too hot

Thanks for the input

Nah, I've got a 480 on the top of the cosmos (external), the 240 in the bottom of the xaser, a free space for a 360 on the inside of the cosmos. I still need a 360, pump, tubes, two blocks for the 5970s.

I think a 120.4 would be more than plenty for a pair or 5970s
