Liquid Cooling

So I've decided to move on from this setup:

Rosewill Cruiser Case
Asus M4N75TD
OCZ Obsidian OCZ3OB1600LV4GK
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
Hec 750W PSU
EVGA GTS 450
Cooler Master Hyper 212+

To something like this.

Cooler Master Haf 932
Asus M4A87TD USB 3.0
Corsair Dominator
Cooler Master GX 650W
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
EVGA GTS 450

The reason for the change is because my current case won't support a large radiator and i would like to be able to push the processor past 4.3GHz which I can't do on air cooling.

I'm wondering what you guys think about my tentative liquid cooling setup:

My radiator mounted to the top of the case without additional fans connected underneath it, but just letting the case's 230mm top exhaust fan pull air through it.

Mounting the Thermaltake SR200 Water Cooling Kit to the bottom corner of the case. Using an adapter from the pump to change it from a flex hose to clear solid plastic/acrylic tubing. Instead of bending the lines and risking kinking them, I'd stick in 90 degree elbow joints where a bend would be needed. I'd run the lines from the pump to the CPU water block, from there to the radiator and returning to the reservoir.

Let me know what you think about the plan.
