No point in buying a Swiftech pump if you are going to replace the top, you just loose your warranty. Get this instead : http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13...tml?tl=g30c107

I wouldn't get those fans.

Get Gentle Typhoon AP-15s they have great static pressure because they're designed to be radiator fans, not case fans.


Edit:
Also, nice, you got the rev 2 apogee XT, one of the best blocks on the market. You shouldn't need any mounting brackets for that, mine came with everything I needed. (cept fittings ofc)


Edit Edit:
The radiator pad you got is for 140mm fans, you have a 120mm fan rad listed there.
