I assume you mean to expand the AIO loop to include both the GPU and CPU. With both the CPU and GPU at stock, it will absolutely be fine. I think it should be fine even with your CPU overclock as I've seen many people use a similar expandable 240mm AIO (H220 mostly) with fair success; in addition, they've done successfully with a much hotter 290x. You are likely (unsurprisingly) to see higher temperatures on your CPU than you currently do now, but lower temperatures on your GPU.

i would not use that. it is not very good. already few being returned.
If you want to do a loop, do it correctly.
Look at the Swiftech H220-X or H240-X. You will want to add a 2nd rad to the loop.

With the rad being aluminum to keep temps lowered wont be good.

The Problem is i cant seem to locate the H220X in the UK, I Appreciatte the heads up on the cooler looks like back to drawing board on that one. and thats not problem with second rad i assumed a 2nd Rad would be of some use

Edit: So to be Honest i would be better Off Saving for loop?

I would save up. You have Air 540 case, 240 on top and 360 or 280 in front.
Many have had a rough time getting the H220-X in the UK. It is a great starter to expand with.

Going full custom planned out in the long run will be the best.
