Nothing can really go wrong. If you take your time, doubt you will have any problems. Not to mention, don't forget to leak test using the 24pin PSU jump starter. Make sure you unplug all the cables to HDD's/GPU's/etc. first.

I think it's pretty straightforward installing the Rasa kit. When installing the block I think it's best to tighten the thumb screws a little at a time each working diagonally to ensure even pressure. Even then, not sure tightening the block anyway makes a difference as long as it's snug and TIM is properly applied.

Yeah, like everyone else here said, take your time and when you're all done LEAK TEST!! Short your PSU so it turns on without the rest of the system powered up and run it for a couple hours (or a day if you want) and check for leaks in the system. Time used leak testing will avoid any major catastrophes.
