Default Thinking of getting this kit.

EK Complete Watercooling kit H3O HF 240EN (Dual Rad)EK Complete Watercooling kit H3O HF 240EN (Dual Rad) EK Complete Watercooling kit H3O HF EN 240 (Dual Rad) [H3O-240HF-EN] - $259.99 : DazMode, The Best Canadian PC Watercooling and Modding Store!

Is this the best option aside from fully custom? EK seems to be a well respected name but it's been awhile since I've messed with water cooling.

It is a good kit. The pump is a bit on the weaker side but it can easily be replaced down the road if you ever get the upgrade bug. It will be sufficient for this though.

I do plan to upgrade parts for sure. Off the bat i forsee angled fittings, a new rez cause that one seems tiny to me? and a new pump as I'll probably add a GPU block.

That kit jd is talking about is VERY sweet. I have one here on a testbed (ex240 ddc 3.25 version). The only issue I have with it is..its an acrylic res and does NOT come with a kill coil or the parts to add a reservoir fill tube. Other than its VERY sweeeet.

Okay so I'm going to grab the Raystorm kit that JD suggested. Would that pump be powerful enough if I added a GPU block? Also which block would I want to get for a 6970?

It would be more than powerful enough.

You can go here to see what block would fit your card: CoolingConfigurator.com
