I just finished up redoing my build with a new case.  I went with the tower 900 and so far i like it.  I am using the Thermaltake Pacific pump/res combo with a single 240 rad (xspc RX).  This pump combo uses the d5 type pump.  I am wanting to go to a 360 or may a 480 rad as my case can support it.  My question is will this pump be enough for the larger radiator?

    Even though brand wise we are different, I am using an EK pump/res with D5 pump pushing through a cpu block, gpu block, a 240mm rad and an 420mm rad. I have set the pump to 100% and all seems good

    I've been running D-5 Vir. pumps for awhile and no problem pushing a 240 x 60--plus 240 x 30 now, it will be enough for your needs

    i run a D5 for my 360 rad and it works fine, normal load the pump runs at about 60% and has no issue at all
