That 60mm air cpu cooler height restriction.
Maybe the community can compile a theoretical min/max configuration with 60mm coolers. Dan mentioned the C1 in passive mode but that would be 61mm and would require a lot of testing since that seems to be very unlikely to function well with a GPU practically touching it. It seems like 240 AiO for cpu and triple fan open back GPU will be the min/max.
I would just like to say that I used to run two GTX 770 and an OCed i7-4770K with only one 240 rad (can't remember how thick it was but not absurd; I could meassure it if you want) and it ran fine. The liquid temps where in the low 30s and everything stayed well bellow Tjmax.
What I want to say is that if I can run a CPU with an estimated power consumption of 100-150W and two 770s each with a power consumption of 150-200W I think you would be fine running a 1070 and an i7-7700K in one loop in this case.
