wait wait wait,

Have you ordered your rig already? If you haven't DON'T GO WITH THE ANTEC

It's horrific for watercooling, I've had one and it's just horrible.

If you want to go 240, I would get this instead

Unless you plan to upgrade your rad with a RX360 at some point.

No. What case would you suggest. Preferebly blue leds. My pc is built around that and it would suck to have a ton of blue stuff in a red case. (I plan on my rig looking really nice, which is why im staying away from noctua)

While I do not have experience with water cooling in an Antec, I liked mine and still have it for air cooling. If you are absolutely need a mid tower, I would recommend the HAF 922. Got decent space and cable management option. For a full tower, I am very happy with mine (sig rig) unless you are one of those that like black interior.

ok,

How about cases that you can put blue LED's into, the Corsair 600t is one of them, a number of Lian Li cases.

I'd also just go with the normal P8P67 motherboard along with an Corsair AX750. Memory is a good choice, if you're only using this for gaming then go with an i5 2500k.

Brilliant for air cooling, but terrible for watercooling, there just isn't enough room to work in.

RS is more than enough for a cpu.

RX360 for a single cpu is overkill, and would net you only a few C difference. If you're expanding to include the gpu as well with the kit then it makes more sense, however for just the cpu it doesn't make any to spend the extra when it won't make a difference. You'll already be voltage or cpu limited before your temps limit you with an i7-2600k.

The kit is great, I expanded mine to include a 360 rad (plus my rs 240), and two gpu blocks and it works great.

I would replace the Pipes that come with the kit though, they are mediocre at best. I'd invest in some good quality pipes at the same time.

The cm 690 II is a great case (has a blue led fan in the front too ) and can fit a thin 240mm (or 360mm with a little modding) at the top of the case (internally) or a thicker one at the bottom (also internally). You should really consider it along with the haf 922 or even the haf 912. They are all great cases from cooler master that cost under $100 that can fit 240mm rads but the cm 690 II is the only i know for sure will fit the thicker radiator in that rasa kit.

These suggestion are assuming you want a mid tower and one that isn't too expensive.
