I would go for the mcr320. It's smaller, cheaper, and nearly matches the performance of the rx360. I don't think the extra performance and space taken up by the rx360 justifies the extra cost.

I don't think either RX360 or mcr320 will be able to handle 2 gpu's + cpu, you may want to invest in a second (dual?) radiator. or if you have space, buy both and use the mcr320 for GPUs and the RX360 for CPUs.
the MCR320 is a single pass, whereas the RX360 is a dual pass. It is the best performing radiator for its price, in the low-cfm dual-pass division.
