Rads are all really close and very much splitting hairs for normal heat loads. The mcr series is very good. A high density rad may gain you some if you were using high speed fans, but low to medium the differences are very small.

A triple plus double change to a quad will be a downgrade, not up.

I would keep them and spend money elsewhere..

With low speed fans you aren't going to see a difference and in some cased your temps will go up with high FPI and slow fans. I agree with Martinm, keep what you have and use the money one something else.

You're most likely not going to see any temp improvements, as the rads you have are already overkill for an i7 920 and 1 GTX480. I'd just stick with what you have.

This, in fact it's probably a good idea to remove the 240 from the loop as it's most likely returning minimal gains over just having the 360, and only adding restriction.
