Upgrading radiator to reduce ambient temperature?

Water Cooling - www.overclock.net
Hi Guys. It's currently summer over here and my PC is starting to increase ambient temperature by 8-10C. The current radiator I have is a swiftech mcr240 so quite a older model and with very little surface area.

My loop is currently cooling a 2500k and gtx660 ti both at stock speeds due to the temperatures. My case is a phantom 820 so I'm currently not taking the advantage of the massive space that it provides.

Would upgrading my radiator to a UT60 360mm push/pull and a UT60 280mm push/pull help reduce my ambient temperature? May also consider the monsta version but not sure if they will fit the top or bottom. My current option is to either upgrade the radiators or invest in a portable ac unit. Both around the same price.

Thanks
