As for the kit, it isn't bad but I don't like the pump much. I like to stick w/ Laing when it comes to pumps. I've been using them for nearly 10 years and have never had any issues with them.

The block included will perform identically to the Elite above, it just doesn't look as nice.
Ok. Thanks bud. So forget the EKWB store, I'll support DazMode. I am currently putting things into the cart and I will post the list once I am done. What do you think about the EKWB DDCP 4.0: Should I go for it or just stick to Laing D5?

I have no personal experience with the pump. If it were me I would stick w/ a D5 or a DDC3.1-PWM.

I will take a look at the DDC3.1-PWM. I like the idea of PWM.

So I just put the following parts together for CPU and chipeset cooling. Please take a look and let me know what I can fix or what I should add. Thanks. I would appreciate your opinion before I pull the trigger.

What are you doing for fans. Since you are ordering from Daz might as well order a pair of gentle typhoon ap-29's. Only 36 db, I would also recommend putting the fans on a controller. But if you are going to get any fairly new mid to high end case these days they'll have a fan controller built in.

Those are nice fans but I have 5xNoctua NF-P12 and 2x Scythe GT 1850RPM so I think I am set for fans. What I am wondering is: should I just grab one of the pre-made kit since they are $309 compared to my custom one which comes in at $430? And should I use barb fitting instead of compression fittings for more tight and secure connection?

I pulled the trigger and order the kit from EKWB with 240mm radiator. Will post pics when it arrives and when I have it installed. I will assess the pump and see how it performs and report on it. I just can't wait. Woohoo.. I will also OC the card that I have, eVGA GTX 780 and see how it performs by itself and if I am not satisfied then I will add another one and either modify my case to fit a 360 at the top or wait for the NZXT H630 and get the blocks along with a rad. Sweet!!

Did you buy a GPU waterblock? It seems they are releasing a new version next week.

Nice. I didn't order a GPU waterblock. I forgot to order a silver killcoil too. Damn! I will wait for that block to come out and order it. Thanks for info. Time to search for a paperclip for jumping the PSU or can I just unplug the 24-Pin ATX power cable?
