I'm not saying either as it will run withing specs with those rads but it won't run extremely cool.
If you want it too run extremely cool I advise to take the thickest rads avaiable made from copper so that'd be 1 240mm one one 120mm one and a 160mm one.
To emphasize what I said earlier let's say the ambient temp is 20 degrees celsius constant.
Your coolant will be 30 degrees or it will be 50 degrees.
Once the 30 degrees coolant goes trough a rad the rad will absorb and dissipate some heat.
That same rad will however dissipate more heat with the 50 degrees coolant as the difference with the room temperature is greater. (however all components will run hotter the loop is able to dissipate more)
