The expandability, and making it so you can achieve higher clocks on CPU and GPU.. If your not planning to do some serious overclocking then Id go with a Noctua NH-D14 at most... Otherwise the link posted before is a good kit(from what ive heard). I ordered mine a couple days ago

how does that compare to the Noctua NH-D14? If it performs better I might get it just to get started with water cooling.

no air cooler can compete with that kit.. like i said it's probably going to be about 10c better.. definitely worth an extra ~$50

The Noctua is high end air cooling, the rasa kit costs around 40 dollars more then the Noctua. The Noctua will run about 5-10C hotter then the Rasa kit (from what I've read) but there seems to be little on the internet comparing the two. The Noctua is a VERY nice air cooler if you can fit it in your rig.

You can make your rig look a lot nicer.
More fun from a hobbyist perspective.

Less Noise.
Lower Temps.
The ability to push further and in turn gain performance.
Bigger e-peen
