I have a corsair 800d and as of now im cooling just my cpu off a 2x120mm radiator im looking to possibly also add in my 2x xfx 7950s to the loop but replacing the 2x120mm with a 3x120mm nothings over clocked and im not bit coin mining or anyting just playing games for a few hours at a time and normal web surfing will the triple 120 be enough. I will be using corsair sp120 fans in a push pull configuration exhausting the air out of the top of my case. The restof my case fans are corsair Af 140mm and a af120mm in the front

Why don't you just use both the 240 and 360 rad, you have plenty of space with that case.

Define "enough." Will it work? Yes. Will you be able to achieve 10C deltas with low speed fans? Nope.

You'd get much better temps if you ran the 240 with the 360.

I ran triple GTX480s along with a stock 3930k on one XSPC RX360 radiator with 3x gelid silent fans on low setting in a pull configuration, and never had a problem with temps.

Max temps on the processor were about 50c, and the video cards were about 60c under full load.

Edit: This was also in a Corsair 800D as well, with the radiator mounted up top.
