WaterCooling assistance

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So guys I am ready to get my water cooling kits and have this rig water cooled. Here's a pic of what I decided to get. What am I missing here?
Another question, should I go with RASA kit or do a full custom loop? convince me on which one to go.

No anti kinks or clamps! - How come you are using stubbies?

Get a EK coolstream in place of the RS, they should be about the same price.

from experience working with the antec lan boys and from what i remembered it wasn't so roomy. have you considered where you're placing your rad? if you're going for custom loop over the rasa kit where is the pump?
