That EX240 is 35.5mm thick. If you have room for the thicker 40mm AX240 you'd probably be a little better off price and performance-wise to go with something like this instead ...

I also wasn't too sure about those kits, there was a 150$ one what was almost the same, except the res was a bay res

Yeah if you went with a bay res kit it's even cheaper.

I linked the new photon res / d5 pump combo kit because you had picked out a different tube res and d5 pump.

Not sure what there is to not be sure about with the kit. It's the same brand rad as you had picked out, except the kit has the slightly thicker better performing (~$20 more expensive) model, and the exact same pump (a Liang D5 vario is still a Liang D5 vario no matter which reseller puts a different sticker on it), it comes with fans, and it's $75 cheaper than parts you had picked out.

so you think the kit would be ideal?

Just make sure it is one of the later versions of XSPC's bay res. The older ones were known for leaking.

This is the build I think i'm going with, does this seem like my best "bang for my buck" or are there others that are just as good if not better for around the same price or cheaper?
