USPS Express Mail International $51.77
FedEx Priority (1-3 days) $125.24
FedEx Economy (2-10 days) $116.17
Please add Rush Processing for $3.99 more info

if the prices are similar on newegg, i might buy all my computer parts (bulldozer, 7000 series gpu, case, psu, mobo,mouse) in the us for 30-40% less and pay 50-100 dollar shipping + the xigmatek costs only 60 bucks in the us, here it costs 80 euros (the mesh version costs 30 euros tho, for no appearant reason whatsoever

might have a bigger budget by doing this, thus having more money for watercooling
Fedex will be your best bet if you want to track the package at every stage of shipment. USPS will only let you know when it has shipped and been delivered.

What was the total price difference for ordering from Aquatuning.nl verse Frozen CPU?

I looked on Neweggs website and they say they don't ship internationally. Someone internationally would need to confirm if they now ship internationally.
This is from their FAQ's:
Does Newegg.com ship internationally?
Newegg.com does not currently ship internationally; we only deliver to locations within the United States and to Puerto Rico.
Amazon.com does ship but "Your packages may be subject to the customs fees and import duties of the country to which you have your order shipped."

Edit: Also, cost wise the XSPC Rasa Kits will be your least expensive solution. However, you do need to eventually replace the tubing (turns brown after a while) with better tubing and possibly the pump if you add more to your loop (GPU's, Radiators, etc).
For a CPU only loop you can use a 240 radiator (2 x 120 mm). Rasa Cost's $130 (RS) - $170 (RX)
For a CPU/Single GPU loop you need a 360 radiator (3 x 120 mm). Rasa Cost's $150 (RS) - $190 (RX)
If going with a CPU and three GPU loop you need at least two 360 radiators, for this type of set up you may be able to get away with less or have to add more, it depends on you ambient temp, airflow for your radiators, if you overclock and what temperatures (CPU, GPU, etc) and dBA you are comfortable with.

Also check out this thread, it lists water cooling etailers, and list some specifically for the Netherlands.

If you build a true custom loop it works out to be more around $400-500 for a CPU only (maybe CPU/Single GPU depends on what you get). However, you may end up spending around that much even if you get the Rasa, if you upgrade your tubing, pump, fittings, etc.

also i think that i'll buy some red uv tubing

EDIT: http://www.xs-pc.com/products/waterc...igh-flex-hose/ i think i can better get some blue uv reactive, its much more brighter and it looks 'cool'
The general rule concerning radiators is that you need a 240 for a CPU only loop and a 360 for a CPU/GPU loop. Two 240's should be enough for your needs. Which Pump where you thinking of getting?

I have noticed that red tubing tends to be more pink and Primochill tubing is better than xspc tubing.
