It's doubtful that you'll see much benefit. At idle to even moderate loads, it's likely no difference at all; copper radiators are super-efficient at heat exchange and you'd likely not be able to get better temps as there is only so much heat you can exchange.

It may help moderate fan speeds at extended, heavy loads however - again, more heat exchange.

However, having one radiator as intake and the other as exhaust is a recipe for issues. The heat from the intake radiator will go through the exhaust radiator and that will significantly reduce your efficiency and overall cooling. I actually initially configured my loop this way - thinking that I had enough alternate intake to mitigate the issue. Didn't work so well and I saw some serious coolant temperature drops when I went back and configured both radiators as intake.
