Need some advice

I'm currently building a computer with 3770k and GTX 680, planning to watercool it with an RX360. If I wanted to add another 680 in there, as a future upgrade, what kind of rad would I need? RX360 will have push/pull with either GT AP-15s or SP120s. What kind of radiator would I need to add onto the RX360 to keep this cool? The rad will be limited to push or pull, if I can fit it in the top at all. Thanks in advanced and if anyone has any extra advice besides don't use a Shinobi, feel free to share.

Proposed specs for the computer:
3770k (ordered)
XSPC Raystorm Black Edition
Corsair Vengeance 32GB DDR3 1600 (half of it ordered)
P8Z77-V (ordered)
Neutron GTX 240GB
GTX 680
Heatkiller Hole Edition Black
Bitfenix Shinobi
XSPC RX360 with push/pull GT AP-15s
Some sort of fan controller, but I'll have to see what looks best where on the Shinobi
AX860
HT Omega Halo Claro for SPDIF In
Win 7 Pro 64bit
Dual VS248H-P
Das Keyboard Pro Soft point
Razer Naga Epic or K90 not sure
Mayhems Coolant - X1 UV Blue or Pastel Blue Berry

push/pull isn't necesary you know. plus, if you are going to overclock either
a supplemental radiator 240 or larger will be needed. you might get by on a
single with no overclocking. a push/pull will lower the temp 3°-4° using high
static fans. adding a second GPU will certainly need more capacity, so the 240
would deffo need some consideration and placement.

you might have to rethink the common parts and goals...

So an RX360 won't be able to cool a 3770k oced (not anything too extreme it will be oced but not to its max) and a 680 stock? Adding a 680 was an idea, it wasn't something I planned it was just more of an option. I don't fully understand what you're saying though, you said "you might get by on a single with no overclocking" to be specific.

what he means is if you dont plan on overclocking then you can run both blocks on the single 360 rad. if you plan to oc then you'll need more rad to dissipate the extra heat. you'll want a 360 and 240 minimum for 2xgpu and cpu overclocked.

Just to be 100% clear this is what I get from reading your posts:
3770k and 680 cpu oc on rx360 is fine
3770k and 2 680s cpu oc is ok
3770k and 2 680s cpu and gpu oc not ok on rx360 ill need another 240

I thought (big emphasis on thought) an RX360 would be fine for 3770k and 680, this is what I'm now starting to question. I remember that being ok, did I remember incorrectly? Haven't built a computer in 7 years and never done cpu and gpu watercooling.

120 for each block in the loop plus one extra is the minimum really,however...the 680 is not a massively hot card to begin with.
You could get away with less rad face if you went for high FPI rads but you will lose some noise quality.

B- hit it squarely for ya there for layman terms hahaha ya 120/per blocks plus 120. As he said if you want less rad then go with a higher FPI (fins per inch) rad but those require higher cfm fans to get the air thru so that defeats one of the reasons for water cooling QUIET PC. so a 360 and 240 with a lower FPI and quieter fans will work better for an overall performance to quiet scenario
