You could always get a "xspc rasa water cooling kit"

great for just cpu cooling, switc it up tp a 360 rad if you want to cool your graphics card always.

Improve temps i would say is around 7-10 c drop.

yes they make a big difference on your temps,and the best liquid to use is distilled water and a killcoil.here is what i have and have added to it:http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12...l=g30c321s1310

The Rasa kit isn't quiet, I have that pump and it's probably the noisiest thing I own at home.

I guess there is the chance of trapped air in it, but meh...

What you have listed is going to be good imo.

If you have the cash, I don't think you'll regret buying that list, you could save some cash on the reservoir and just get a normal single bay one, I would recommend the XSPC bay res, I like it a lot.

Which Ek block is that..??
I would just get a regular single bay res.

Don't buy from FrozenCPU, as their prices are alittle higher than other places.

Questions

1.) Yes you will I have a 930 at 4.0 now and my idles are around 40s idle. Under load it's in 60's-70's, I have the hf supreme full copper water block.

2.) Yes and no its very minimal from what I read the ambient room temp plays more into this IMO. I use distilled cause it is the cheapest and easiest if you want coolant the fester on stuff is the best on the market and people have the least amount of issues with it gunking up their system.

3.) I am using the mcp655-b pump and my psu fan is louder than the pump once I blead the air out of it.

4.) I like frozencpu and sidewinder they seem to have some of the best prices.
Mast off my parts were from sidewinder.

Parts

1.) Pump is a good choice.

2.) I went the the xspc 360 I think it is a bit cheaper. Both rads are good choices.

3.) res is good. the res Is really just for looks can probably go with a cheaper res mine is an xspc one that fits with the pump.

4.) The hf supreme copper and nickel are both good choices depends on looks.

Not saying your pump isn't loud, but I think its artificially loud. I own this kit and I can't hear my pump even a little bit. Sometimes I wonder if its even working!

Methinks its air trapped in yours, or its malfunctioning.

Regardless, the Rasa is a great beginner kit. I highly recommend it!

Thanks guys for the input

There will be a difference how noticeable it is, is hard to say. I had a hard time deciding but after researching I decided I wanted to go with the some of the best custom parts I could get. The rasa kit preforms great but a good custom build will preform better. Also the rasa kit comes with detailed instructions on how to set it up iirc. The custom will only comes with instructions on the individual parts you will have to research/ask how you should optimally set up your custom kit. If price is an issue go with rasa if you don't mind handing out some extra green for a custom go custom. Either way your choice will lead to much cooler temps than air.
