What size rad can you get in that case?
On a low budget the RASA kits are always good for starters.

People need to think outside of the box, and go external - in some instances! (See what I did there)

A quick perusal of some sites without thinking about it all too much gave me the following;
CPU Block: Koolance - 380i €57.63
GPU Block: P-PC's - EK-FC7870 €76.68
Pump/Res: Koolance - RP-985 €107.58
Radiator: Koolance - 360mm 18FPI €44.57
External Mount: Koolance - Mounting Bracket w/ Quick Release €34.57

Rough total: €321.03

Now, I'm not endorsing these items by any means, and I know they're mostly all Koolance, that just happened to be the random bookmark I opened when taking a quick gander. That is not to say, however, that Koolance is bad, they're actually pretty good, IMO.
I'm merely just giving you a, albeit low, starting point to get an idea from.

Also, with your sleeving... I'm going to point out the obvious and say that the recurring theme in your PC is black and blue... perhaps start there?

I will change blue i was thinking to buy uv parts and make it green or orange also is it good idea to put a single fan rad in the back ? I will buy extations cables for psu.Generally i will emphasize visualisation too (I prefer EK products but i cant find full plate cover for my gpu )
Looking forward to listening to you again !!!

I think that a double fan like this should be fine
