First of all, many thanks for your replies
After reading your advices I'm oriented to get the NH-D15 together with 2x240mm fans to improve the air intake from the front of the case. I will try to fit everything into my existing R3 and then I'll decide whether I will want to upgrade to the R5 or not.

On a more serious note, the X99 Extreme6 despite not being the top of the line should be very sturdy, so I don't really mind the weight. I would like to pick a quality component that will keep my cpu cool and safe for the longest time with the .5 / .7 GHz overclock.
There is some space around the case: on the front, a little bit on the back and then a whole lot on the right side. Both a rad and an air cooler should be OK. I guess it all depends on how much air they require to operate at their full potential.
I have checked for the Swiftech H240-X, but I could only find it from an unknown dutch reseller. Moreover, I don't really know the brand and I don't know how they handle RMA in Europe, how their warranty terms are, etc. (for instance, I have heard that Corsair refunded some of their clients who had their system damaged because of liquid leak. How would Swiftech react in such cases?).

The h100i / h110i would be my first water cooling system, so unfortunately I don't have the experience nor the knowledge (nor the money
) to put together a custom-made water block. The new case + the Corsair + the two extra Noctua fans would already stretch my budget, but I'd be happy to do so if it's more reliable and cooler. I will leave the 980 Ti on stock settings, so would it make any sense to go for a custom loop or an expandable AIO? I'm basically looking to cool down my CPU and that's pretty much it Edited by Drakknar - 7/22/15 at 4:42pm
