How will two HX-CU420V and one HX-CU720V with four FAN-12025HBK handle a i7 3770k and a refrence GTX680?

3770k ~= 150W (not overclocked)
GTX680 ~= 180W (not overclocked)
Rough total of 330W (not overclocked)
HX-CU420V estimated 400W
HX-CU720V estimated 700W
330W vs 1100W means the radiators should work well even at slow fan speeds. This isn't exact but is a good way to estimate what is needed.
IN THEORY a lone HX-CU420V might be enough but to reach the max estimated wattage but you would need high speed/high noise fans to get away with it.
