I like everything in this kit the water block, the res/pump/ and the low profile radiator.

It's good, don't forget the coupon code for %5 off biggrin.gif if you don't have it just message me.
I'd choose a RX over the EX for having a thicker rad. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/19408/ex-wat-254/XSPC_Raystorm_Customizable_RX360_Universal_CPU_Water_Cooling_Kit_w_D5_Variant_Pump_Included_and_Free_Dead-Water.html


To be honest, if you're going to drop the $260, go fully custom. You'll definitely benefit more.
Get a real nice rad+water block, your pump and reservoir of choice, fittings, and the tubing. This way later on you won't want to change the xspc pump, or the radiator.

Hopefully some more experienced WC'ers come here and give you some info smile.gif You got a HAF-X so you have plenty of space for big rads and more biggrin.gif

Don't forget theres more places to shop http://www.overclock.net/t/1374649/poll-reliable-online-sites Many times frozencpu DOESN'T have the best prices smile.gif

IF its your first time, that kit would be a great option. If you can afford $500 for a custom loop (with GPU) then go right ahead, otherwise this is what I would go with. The EX rad is very close to the RX in terms of performance. Here's a reveiw: http://martinsliquidlab.org/2012/12/22/xspc-ex360-radiator/

For a GPU block, This would go nicely in you system: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16701/ex-blc-1190/XSPC_Razor_nVidia_GTX_670_Full_Coverage_VGA_Block_-_Reference_Design.html?tl=c311s1708b49

Thank you Hamma, question: I see you have the HAF X as well, if I go with that kit should I take off the fan(i have 2) on the top of the case or can i leave them for pull and have 3 fans attached to rad for push?

I would remove them. Thats what I did when I put my rad up top. Otherwise it will interfere with the mobo/make stuff difficult.

The only thing I wish they would change about this is to use the clear acrylic reservoir the black one doesnt show the glow of the water inside enough... thats why I didnt buy it cause you can't switch that out LOL

one last question


the only thing im debating about this kit is the tubing size, me personally I want somewhat thick tubing is is the 7/16 x 5/8 rather skinny? if this is the case i might just piece together the build and get a buidl with larger fittings, what ar e good compression fitting rhar can use and whats a good tube size?

thanks again
