running 2 580's and my i7 overclocked to 4.4 and I'm using 2x mcp355 (don't think it's necessary, 1 would suffice.. I have too much blocks figured it was better)

and I'm using a sr1 360, sr1 140 and a stealth 120..

cards @ 32ish celsius and cpu @ 37 idle

load gets parts around 40 to 45 last time I checked

Depending on your case and how you plan on mounting it all you'd definitely be safe with two RX360's if you can go that route, that's what I plan on doing and I'll only have a CPU and GPU under water.

I'm future proofing myself I guess, doesn't hurt to be safer in the long run.

As far as pumps go I'd stick with an MCP655, I went pump crazy for awhile and could not decide on MCP355 or MCP655. After a LONG while of searches it seems the MCP655 is a more reliable pump and the two don't really make that big of a difference against one another unless the loop is really specific to what each of the pumps offer.

MCP355 - Head Pressure / Better for much more restrictive loops
MCP655 - Flow Rate

Those are the pumps strong ends, if you had a motherboard waterblock too I'd probably recommend the MCP355 but for your current setup an MCP655 will be great.

Hope it helped man, good luck with the build!
