No the apogee GT block comes with a retention plate. Given that the DTEK fusion V2 is on sale in the member specials plus you can price match the other components with DC you could build as similar setup with a better cpu block. 179 for the 2nd kit is a great deal though!!!

The pump you chose is not as good as the MCP-655. Still it's a good pump - I have both. But the Fuzion V2 is definitely better than the Apogee GT. You're missing a second pair of metal barbs, for the micro-res (if you wish). You have only one pair for the rad.

Make sure you use Price Canada to price match all those items. It'll end up being even less. Not sure if you already have fans or not, but Yate Loons are a cheap and quiet way to go.

so the pump i chose should be ok for now,?
im only going to cool my cpu with it.

or should i start with kit 2 and upgrade the cpu block later ,will the Apogee GT work as a good 1st block for newb like me?

thank you

Yes, for both questions. They are 2 very good kits. You won't be disappointed by either.
