I know that heat-dissipation is highly dependent upon flow rate and the number of fans that are circulating air...but just as a passive cooler, any thoughts?
 
Right now I am toying with the idea of having it (along with 1 180mm fan on it) cool 2 2080TIs (or better), and an OCd Ryzen 3960x. This rad is probably massive overkill for that, but I cannot find any specific info on just where the base rad would start at heat dissipation.
 
Any help would be appreciated.

    I'd ask the Mfg ... based on their statement they should know
     
    airplex GIGANT 1680, aluminum fins
     
    (excerpt)
     
    the airplex GIGANT series readiators are designed as stand-alone devices and offer a much higher cooling capacity. The airplex GIGANT series is perfectly suited for fanless (and threrefore noiseless) operation, installation of fans will unleash its immense cooling capacity.

    Good call, Cool. 
     
    I checked the Aquacomputer forum, and while there is a dearth of 1680/3360 cooling capability info, I was able to find a maximum capacity for them: it seems that maximum cooling for a Gigant 1680 is ~3kW, and ~6kW for a 3360.
     
    I would suspect that a 1680 could passively cool, reasonably, ~500W, depending on external temps, which is pretty much the sum-TDP of any current-gen i9 (165W) and a 3090 (350W). Obviously, a 3360 would be better at passive dissipation...

    In my HydroX loop with 2x 360 mm and Noctua 3000 RPM fans, I found that running the XD5 pump at 100% reduces Prime95 temperatures by 3 C. Running the fans at 100% does nothing. The limitation seems to be the rate of flow over the fins, rather than the cooling capacity of the radiator.
