hi guys, so i have a 60mm thick 480mm radiator, 35mm thick 360mm radiator and a 30mm thick 240mm radiator... im planning on using enermax clusters on all of the radiators. so here is what i am cooling 2 x gtx 480s, 2600k and my motherboard. i dunno if i have enough radiators to turn the fans really low. so do you guys think that it will be fine? or should i swap the 30mm thick 240mm radiator out for a 60mm/80mm thick alphacool?

I think you have more then enough rad surface for ya setup , running the fans on low speed will not cause any problem here imo .

what are the radiators manufacturer and model?
if you are running high 20+ FPI, the cluster is a lil timid on static pressure @ 12v.
like the GTX/stealth rads. the "looser" fin per inch would be a better alternatative
with all the surface area. the 480 and 360 will easily cover the hardware and the
240 (if used) can be used as headroom if in a high ambient situation or fan fail.
only your testing can really determine how low the fan speed can go without
excessive heat...

Airdeano is pretty much on the money.

A 360 and a 240 would be fine IMHO.

Quiet will always mean warmer temps, its just a ballencing act.

Even under water CPU's will still get hot (60 - 70+) when pushed hard but thats the point.
