MCR320 should be plenty enough

220 might be a little pushing it

Can't see any issues with an MCR320. An MCR220 can do it too, but be prepared to have the components running a few degrees hotter than they might otherwise, courtesy of the higher water temps.

It would also depend on fan speed and orientation to get the maximum performance from the MCR220. If you have San Ace fans on both sides in a push/pull configuration along with 28 to 30 mm fan shrouds on both sides then I would use that as it will work but if your the quiet type then I would not go that route and use the MCR320. If your going to give up rad acreage then you will have to boost fan power. The more rad you have the more you can turn your fans down to get the same performance.

Second fan speed thingy. If you crank fans up you can get much more from the rad. Having said this, my tests of MCR220 performance were quite unsatisfactory for single CPU loop set up, so I recommend MCR320 or something better then Swiftech.

I have monsta on my desk for 3 weeks now, but I have no idea how to fit in my HAF. This bloody thing is almost as long as quad (because it is triple 140mm).

Yeah it's big but that's the reason why I want to use these for the next build theme. It's going to be an engine build theme that I have wanted to do for some time now. Going to use 2 of the MONSTA's as cylinder heads and I think another 2 MONSTA's in the oil pan. Still have not decided yet as it is in the design phase and my other build is still not finished.

I wish somebody come with nice case for watercooling. So far choices are very limited.
