Only potential issue I see is upgrading, it may be really hard to add VGA blocks or to change the CPU block. I would say buy it in parts, or one like the Swiftech you posted yesterday (at least I'm pretty certain that was you) or else you're stuck having to buy a whole new kit if you want to upgrade.

Yeah, dont do it, if you are cheap just buy really cheap parts so you can upgrade one by one. Don't go for the kit as it is somewhat hard to upgrade with as others have mentioned before. If you need help post something in the WC section with your budget and we can help you out planning a good budget setup.

a lot of people hate WC kits. I think it really depends on how new you are to it. I have only done one WC system( using an upgraded TT big water kit) It has been very realiable, no leaks , and all around good cooling butI also have it in a Armor case with 4 120mm and 1 250mm fans not including the ones on the RADs of wich I have three. I doing a new dual loop system of all dangerden/swifttech parts now in a mozart case... I would say that if you go with a kit go with one that is essintatly just a bunch of parts of a normal WC system not one that is entirely pre built as I think this one is. that way you get the experince to do your next system the right way.

or just buy swift/danger at the outset and do it slowly. with all the help you can find here you will have a easy time of it.
