Hmm where would the pump go? Guess at the bottom... Not sure about it, is it worth it? How easy is it to install/maintain?

Sorry for the 101 questions

Noctua NH-D14, looks a beast! Would it fit in my case? and look about the same sort of price
You can fit any cooler you like in the 690 II. You will have to remove the top fan on the side panel, though.
It's actually recommended by the manufacturer to attach the H7O to an intake fan so it gets the coolest air possible passing through the rad. If you do end up with that, just try different configurations. It's the only way to know what works best for you.

If you go with the XSPC Rasa kit, that is a true WCing setup. The pump is inside the reservoir, which fits in the 5.25" bays. You will need to clean the loop every 6-12 months.

The silver arrow is cheaper than Noctua NHD14 and slightly better. I've had the noctua. It was rubbish. Silver arrow is way better.

I remember reading your thread about the FAULTY NH-D14 you had. Did you ever get the RMA from Noctua? Or are you basing this very biased opinion solely on your one bad experience with the cooler?Everyone else who has this cooler loves it, and get good performance from it.
