Build your own and youll be far happier and may even save a bit and I garuntee youll get better performance for teh same price if you do it yourself.

Look around the threads here this has been brought up several times, IRA-K is really good at hookin people up with kits and a few others here also.

You'll be wanting this kit.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835108105
however, do make sure to tighten all screws before use, because the assemly-guys did a lousy job resulting in multiple people having complained about block leaks. if you take it apart and rebuild it with care, it wont leak, as the components themselves are fine.

If you're still focused on a kit, the Corsair Nautilus 500 is a good unit provided you swap out the silly screen mesh for a real finger guard. $149.99

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...air%2bNautilus

The GPU add-on kit could be added too for a few dollars more.

In the course of two years, I've installed four of them without any issues. It's the easiest install for WCing I've ever done.

For a few dollars more, a Swifty kit would be ideal. But it requires more labor for install.

If you want something good for under 200 build your own kit, but get what you can used. Check the for sale sections on OC.N, anandtech and hardforum. I saved a lot of cash by getting my watercooling gear used from the 3 forums.

I'd build one from components for sure...Kits are always a compromise and you can spend lot trying to upgrade one...

Like he was saying you can look around and find used parts a lot cheaper..

The D-5 vario pump is a good one....Try to get the vario versions, the "B" model flows 30% less as tested by Martin and CrazyJoe...D-5

The Fuzion is a good CPU block, next I would get a Apogee GT, stay away from the GTX, it has an aluminum top in it... FuZion CPU Block

...D-Tek Fuzion install tip! (Or why you should clean new blocks)

...How To: Clean out a D-Tek Fuzion CPU Block

...D-Tek FuZion Washer Made Easy. - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

A good rad that can be had cheap is a heater-core....Heater Core

Even cheaper is buying one at a auto parts store and doing the barbs your-self....Barbs for heater-core-fstfrddy

...How to make a dual heater core fan shroud...

...Easy to make Shroud for the Bonnie

Clean any used parts well...I'll leave you my cleaning and set-up PDF also...

I've have one of those to...The first thing I did was take out the aluminum rad,then put in a 120 BIP, I don't do mixed metals,I was going to add a external 240 to it,put a orange impeller 18W DDC in it w/top, boxed the rad in from the top of it to the bottom of the case with coil stock,then put a 108 Sunon in it, I used a de-horned Swifty micro res in it......I never could get 1/2" tubing and fittings in it with-out using 90's, so I never used it...I've been using it for a res cooler, but it took up to much room so I used something else....I think I'll use it for a GPU only loop or something...I just liked the looks of the things I guess, by the time you mod one out you could build a lot better rig for less...

Heres a couple of pic's when I was using it as a res cooler...
