Any recommendations and if possible the theme im going for is blue so i would like one with blue leds on it possibly. i was looking at the corsair 80i but it doesnt look as sleek as the rest of the system and i tried the cooler master seidon 240M and it didnt fit in the case.

Well, if you cant fit any AIO with a 240mm RAD, you are kinda stuck getting smaller ones that don't look as sleek. You have other options, but might need some modification. Using a AIO with 240mm RAD or larger and mounting the rad on the outside. Another option is just going with a high end air cooler, then add fans that appeal to your color scheme. Water cooling is one of those things you need to think about when buying a case.

You can run a custom loop and use blue tubing, and run a dual 120m radiator setup like cheap trick did right here. Or you can use the 80i and mod it with a blue led fan and blue tubing its all up to you

since this was my first build i dont trust myself to do a custom loop by myself.
what about if you had to choose between a corsair 80i , cooler master 120xl , or the intel bxts13x ?

The Coolermaster and 80i are going to be pretty much the exact same units branded for the companies that sell them. I don't know anything about the Intel, so between the other 2, get the one that costs the least.

The intel one is made by Asetek, im guessing asetek makes the other two also. but the intel one just looks so much better, just cant seem to find any reviews on one, or anyone that even has one lol
