My System Specs

Default MCP355 w/ XSPC Res-top enough?

Just wondering if one of these pumps would be enough for the following setup:

EK Supreme-HF w/ Plate 3
Swiftech MCR320
Swiftech MCR220
XSPC RX120
2x EK-FC480

It seems to work fine with my current setup (everything but the MCR220), but I'm just wondering if I'll need to look into a second pump should I want to add a third rad in.

Thanks in advance!

Rads are not very restrictive - at all. Personally, I would use two just for redundency, but you should be fine. Unless your running a bunch of 90-degree fittings or QD's.

Well, currently, I'm using three 45-degree fittings and a 90-degree fitting. When the MCR220 goes in, I'll probably be adding a second 90-degree. Would that be considered too much for the pump? I'm just looking at my options right now to see how much I'm going to need to put away for my WC setup this summer

I think you would be okay still. Those 355's have a good amount of pressure.

I had a 355 powering the following :

Switech 480 RAD + 220 RAD + 2 X Swiftech XT + 2 X FC GTX480 Blocks + 3 X 90 Degrees multioption, and I was ok.

Great! Definitely can't wait until I plug that dual rad in. Hoping for some sub-50 temps on my 480's :D
