What kind of temps can I expect from this setup, if I do everything right...

Swiftech Apogee GTZ
Swiftech MCR240 + 2 medium speed Yate Loons
Swiftech MCRES Micro v2
D5 MCP 655 Pump
Danger Den Acetal Fillport
Distilled + PT Nuke + UV dye

I'm currently at 4.2GHz @ 1.31v with my Q9550.

Using the Xigmatek S1283 Dark Knight, my current temps are: 36 36 41 41 idle and about 72-74c load on the hottest core.

Thanks

is 64c on load even acceptable for a water cooling loop?

It's going to be CPU only.

Should I consider just dropping this 240 rad and getting the MCR320 even though I have the 240 rad coming to me anyway?
yeah MCR320 would have been better, but seems to me you have already ordered 240.

I will just play it by ear then and see what the temps actually are. If they are bad I will just upgrade to the MCR320.

Everything else in your setup is great, and if you are thinking of upgrading your rad later on
get one of these:

Black Ice GTX 360= work great with 80+ cfm fans.
Feser 360= work great with 60+ cfm fans.
