True.... I tend to be somewhere in the middle, but mostly practical. That is why I would never look beyond the price point of the RASA kits for starters. And I would rather not even do water cooling because of maintenance and risk (as opposed to air or something like the H70), but if the extra cooling will make some sort of difference then I might be for it if I will be able to see the difference and it extends my processor life. Again, 4.1GHz is probably my target to stay at or so as I doubt most people would notice a difference between that and 4.5. At least in most applications.

In all seriousness though would you say it is worth the investment and my return on investment to get the 320 kit or to use something like the H70 or Noctua DH14 if they still keep it all relatively cool as most people claim with Sandy Bridge?

I think you will be happy with the temperatures from the Rasa kit and then want to add your GPU. If you get the Rasa kit I would recommend getting some PrimoFlex tubing. The kit comes with tubing but the PrimoFlex looks better and makes tighter bends without kinking.

I'd say get an H70, but if you like watercooling, and have an endless budget, get loads of EK stuff and go crazy!

you need one coil and just goto the supermarket and get a gallon of distilled water it will be about 79cents. The coil goes into the loop in the reservoir.

Would the 320 be strong enough for a single graphics card and CPU? I don't really plan on anything like that, but just curious.

Though it looks sweet I think it may be overkill and probably way outside $150.

360* and yes it would be enough for a cpu and gpu
