I'm about to order a mountainmods case as i really just like the case and have room for the extra size. My question is this, will a single 360mm rad be enough to cool both a q6600 running 3.6ghz and 2 GTX280s, or should i plan on running 2 loops, one for the cards and the other for the cpu/northbridge?

Nope. 2 Loops required... or one megaloop.

Probably a triple radiator for both GPU's, and a double rad for the CPU... Or just put 2x 320mm rads in series and cool the whole damned thing.

You will need at least a triple radiator for the cards alone as Arcy said, your looking at 400-500W of heatdump from the GPU's alone.

You need to wait and see if these 200+watt heaters also known as GTX280 is worth the money.

After that, pray you can fit at least one quad rad in your case.

I was planning a triple rad for the cards, and dual rad for the cpu loop. I'll have plenty of room, i just ordered a UFO for all of this.
