I would go with the rasa cpu block

everything else looks pretty good
if you have room the xspc dual bay res for the 655 pump is great
your pump goes on the res so theres less hose in the pc and it looks neater inside

it does take up 2 5.25 bays and is about 59.00 but its nice

and really if you get the rasa cpu block you can put the money you save on between the 2 cpu blocks and put it toward the xspc res and not be out much more

the only power used is for the pump and its no more than 18w unless you start cascading pumps, so no you wont need a bigger power supply for water cooling


the rasa cpu block is the best bang for the dollar
and the swiftech rads are the best rad for the dollar

price- performance - rasa

best performing- EK Supreme HF Nickel

xt is a bit restrictive

keep in mind there's less than 1-2c difference between the top blocks.
