Is a single 240 rad enough???

OK so ive got all the bits for my new build the specs are:

8700k delidded
GTX 1080ti
Asus strix itx z370
2x evo 970 500gb
Silverstone 800w sfxL psu

I've bought a GTX Nemesis 240 rad will this be enough to cool the above?

No. As Jay said: 240 rad (regardless of thickness) for every overclocked component that you have. You would need one more 240.

I watched jayz video about this he was referring to 30mm rads I've got a 54mm GTX Nemesis 240 I was hoping the higher quality and extra thickness might be enough :/

Hmm I guess the evolv shift is out then. Anyone know a decent Itx case that can fit a pair of 240mm rads and ek ddc res combo 250?

You can try EK's loop configuration app. I threw in some of your bits and it came to circa 275W, I'll presume you'll want to clock the cpu a bit since you've delidded it so I used the 8086 as a base.

I've always worked to a rule of thumb that for every 120mm of Rad you'll cool 100Ws or so. Dont forget to put in a bit of wattage / heat for your chosen pump(s).

Evolv X would do it.

240 is DEFINITELY too little, calculators be damned. A hot GPU and a hot 6-core? Forget that silliness. As for cases, the only ITX case I've ever stuffed a pair of 240 rads into was the Corsair Carbide Air 240, but they were *very* thin rads, and I *still* lost a LOT of skin off my knuckles due to the tight fit! Would not recommend that one.

Surface area is way more important than ticknes. Two 240mmx30mm rads will outperform single 240mmx80mm rad by quite a margin. You have two very hot components. Don't get me wrong, it will manage to cool them, but fans will need to be ramped up, and temps won't be open loop worthy. Those two are the reason you water cool in the first place. Quiet system, and low temps.

Yeah I think I've made an absolutely huge booboo I just bought my z370i strix, evolve shift x and 800w sfxL psu gonna need to go up to atleast matx to get a suitable case which means selling or swapping out the case motherboard and psu. I might actually cry
