Default Can I fit and extra rad with this pump?

I have an XSPC RayStorm 750 RS360 (V4 Pump) WaterCooling Kit and I was wondering if I could add another XSPC EX240 Slim Line Dual Fan Radiator in the loop?

Would this be too much for this little pump? I am only for now cooling the CPU.

I know I should have gotten a D5 or twin D5 pump but when I did this then I was on a budget.

So... can this pump handle another or not?

It will handle it. Most radiators aren't very restrictive.

You'd likely be able to add a GPU block and still it would be sufficient. Flow rate is generally overrated.

Question:

Would I be able to add a 2 x120 rad AND a single 120 rad to my loop with this pump? I have a source that gives me a good deal on a single 120 rad as well. Can I go overkill for now and add it or will it be TOO much for the V4 pump?

I'd imagine it would be fine. If you see your temps actually going up then just pull one of them out.

I will mostly upgrade in the future, but for now then a V$ is what I have. I am just worried that its not strong enough... you guys know if it will be ok? AS with stats and restrictions?

I tested a 360 rad last year for flow rate etc.... the amount of time it took to move 1 liter of water without the pump and then with the pump was a 1 second difference. So not worth being concerned about. lowfat pretty much nailed it on the head.
