That's probably in relation to RAM timeings, the lower the values the better. Most memory DIMM's are given a certain ratd operateing speed and timeings, though you can often increase the speed and lower timeings depending on the quality of the memory, this usually requires uping the vCore though.

As for your water cooling components, they look all good to me.

Looks good. The waterblock should clear the capacitors and everything else right next to the CPU socket. But make sure before you tighten.

Make sure when you get the D-Tek to dis-assemble it and remove the excess gasket. The lower gasket is injection molded and therfore has some extra crap you need to remomve or it might end up in your pump!
It's very easy, and as soon as you pull it apart you'll see right away what I'm talking about.
