How much were you looking to spend? The XSPC Raystorm block (the one in the kit) is one of the better ones but for the most part they are all going to be in the same ballpark. Same goes for radiators, for a given size/thickness the difference between brands is generally pretty small (except for a few specific cases, like ones with really high fin density).

My case is the CM HAF XM http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=3087

I really don't have a budget, I was planning on saving up and selling to get the amount needed.

Do I need one radiator for both the cpu and gpu or more? Who makes the best blocks? I really want the best performance possible within what my case can hold to the brim.

Then look here to find the gear that's compatible with you hardware www.coolingconfigurator.com

Then look at www.ekwb.com they have some of the highest quality stuff for water cooling

You can buy your items directly from EK if your in Europe, it would be cheaper that way.

If your in the US, try:

www.frozencpu.com use code OCN to get 5.1% off

www.performance-pcs.com use code OCN55 to get 5.5% off

The NZXT Mix 2 fan controller is fantastic, for such a low cost device, it works wonders. i forgot who recommended it, but thanks! it rocks.

How about reading the sticky in this forum: http://www.overclock.net/t/226970/updated-water-cooling-essential-threads/0_30

After reading atleast one wc guide you can still ask if some things are unclear or if a specific setup would work.

Delidding, acrylic tube, monsoons hard line gold fittings, and for the next question:
Do I have the ek gold block? Does m.nigh shamalon ruin every movie he makes?? sheesh wink.gif
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Great looking build you got there thumb.gif

Was going to do a black/Gold build a while back but I never found the fittings that could match my two Swiftech Limited Edition Apogee HD blocks (snr. 006 and 007 or the "Bond" biggrin.gif )

I suggest watching Dazmode's watercooling guide https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmbmW-I8Bno

I was originally thinking of using this as well however the ek gold came out and like the ability to see the liquid as well it has much higher ratings than the apogee cpu block.

Finally I didn't want to over saturate it with gold there is plenary in there and you won't be able to see the inside of the ek CPU block because it will be pastel black wink.gif
