I seem to remember though that you may be able to for the MCW60 if you use some extenders. Might be wrong on that.

For the XSPC block: likely. From the pictures it looks like the inlet/outlet are fairly far apart. It's still going to depend on what size of compressions of course, and a 45 degree fitting on one of the fittings will likely let you use them no matter what.

MCR120/220 - yes, but be careful, since the holes for the fittings are countersunk, and the stock orings on the comp fittings may not be thick enough to seal 100%. This problem comes up with the GTZ water block as well. For best assurances, hit up your local auto/plumbing store and get some thicker o-rings to use.

XSPC Restop - no guarantees on the comp fitting working on the outlet. It's angled upwards slightly, and the top edge of the fitting's base may be blocked by the walls of the reservoir. Stupid design, imo.

Yeah, those should work fine for the restop and rad. Won't do anything for the situations where the holes are too close together, of course.
