Radiator Question

I am planning on building a micro atx PC in a custom case that my friend has. I am going to custom water cool it, but there is only enough room for 2 120/140mm radiators, one on the top and one on the bottom. Will those 2 radiators, probably in push/pull, be enough to cool the system? I am cooling the CPU (i7-9700k) and the GPU (RTX 2070 Mini ITX). At most, I will be doing mild overclocking, nothing too limit pushing.

That will be more than enough. A single 240mm radiator would be enough for both the 9700k and 2070 with no overclocking. With light overclocks, two 240mm would be overkill, no push/pull needed.

we are going to have 2 120mm radiators, not 2 240mm ones. I think we're gonna play it safe and leave them stock.

Ahh, I misunderstood. I think it should be fine anyway. A 120mm radiator will cool a 2080 Ti with a single fan, so you are definitely okay still.

that's what we like to hear, thank you!
