I think its 62C. I would say its cutting it close, but you want to see what your max temps are after a while, not immediately. If it stays around 55C after an hour, then you should be good. But with water cooling, it dumps a lot of heat into your room, so expect your ambient temps to rise, which affects cooling.

Like after an hour or so of prime 95, or an hour of Crysis 2, something along those lines. If your temps are shooting right up to 55C when doing CPU intense tasks, you might want to back off a bit on the Vcore.

You can keep your max CPU temps down lower with the extra radiator. It won't really make a difference that much in the idle temps, but on load, it will.

right that is why i went with the extra rx120 for the max head room
