They are about the same really. A 240 and a 120 is going to outperform the single 240, but then again you need more space in the case.

Without a custom top the MCP350 is actually weaker than the XSPC pump:

MCP350 + Top: 4.48 PSI
XSPC 750: 3.59 PSI
MCP350 Stock: 3.25 PSI

Besides, for the small loop he's running there isn't even going to be a difference. Once you pass the threshold of 1 GPM, adding extra pump does not equate to lower temperatures. Since both pumps can easily pass the threshold in his loop, there will be no real performance difference between them.

Well... I think I'll still go for the Rasa kit, simply because I was planning on changing the pump/reservoir later on anyways. I had read reviews that said they're not the best for the price.
