Just did some quick research, and people are doing just fine with a single MCP655 on a dual-rad config, some with more than 3 blocks. Since the CPX-PRO is slightly less powerful than an MCP655, I think it should turn out alright with 3 blocks. 4 would be pushing it though. If I decide to do the window res, I'll definitely need two pumps. But, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

You guys are right, I was trying to make this way more complicated than it really is. I think this will be my final setup (reorganized and scaled more appropriately for my case):

IMHO for pumps go with DCC and loose the 4 to 1 manifold

using 2 1/2" Y's , you push on 3/8 tubing just muscle an pot of warm water

for rez just get a large one an share with both circuits mod for fill port by adding

another 3x 1/4npt hole on top

I want to give the CPX-PRO a shot, as it is reportedly considerably quieter than the competition, despite being a little weaker. But yeah, I will be getting rid of the Koolance quad thing. I'll probably avoid a res altogether, but we'll see if the window res is doable or not, if so, that's what I'll do.
