I recommend:

also that compatibility site is for EK blocks...i m not sure how Danger Dan blocks will fit. so be careful.
If you don't mind the 'bling' factor from EK... look at XSPC stuff... their rads are good, and their raystorm cpu block is better. also everything is 25-30% less.
Also why you like that res? its going be loud with all that water splashing...and once again EK for bling factor.
Yeah I noticed. So I will go with them and I liked it because I know I dont have space on the inside of my case for a res so that mad sense to get because 3 of my 5 5.25 bays aren't being used.
And yes I also am US based. I could use the Danger Den Block with this?

I would personally go with a 240 + 120 setup for the rad.
Either this kit if it will fit in your case.

or this kit if you can't fit the RX radiator.
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11743/ex-wat-159/XSPC_Rasa_750_RS240_Universal_CPU_Water_Cooling_Kit_w_Free_Kill_Coil.html?tl=g30c83s137
along with both kits you could buy another 120mm rad to add into the loop as well as a GPU block.
If you go with a GPU and CPU block, I would recommend no less then 360mm worth of rad.
The first kit might be able to do a GPU without a 120mm rad added on because the RX rads are much thicker, and dissipate much more heat.
Okay. I was planning on doing separate rads for each component. So then just pair the first kit with a another 120mm rad. Also all those would work with the Danger Den block?

if you are running one loop, you don't need a rad for each component. Any blocks will work with a loop, simply because they are only connected by tubing of the same size. So it doesn't really matter as long as the stuff has the same sized barbs on it.
Most water cooling gear comes with G1/4in threads, which will accept many different barb sizes. So if you have 1/2in tubing, then get 1/2in barbs.
I would check with the guys that have your case to make sure an RX rad will fit in the case, if so, then go for the first kit I linked, that will get you the best performance.
Then you can add a 120mm later.

So I would just add another rad in the line since I plan on doing both GPU and CPU? Also dropped the question on the offical thread lets see what they say.

correct me if i'm wrong guys, but i thought the rule of thumb was 120mm per block? since he has two componets he wants to cool, wouldn't a 240mm be sufficient?

It really all depends on what the block is hooked to, and what the rad is. But normally you can get away with 120mm of good rad for each component. But most guys want to overclock the CPU so that is normally a 240mm rad for it.

I figured the block would fit, Im just not sure of the rad and seeing its a double thick rad I doubt it.
