That block works great I have the 5970 version of it on the way to my house atm. The RASA fans are great. Yate Loons and Gentel Tpyhoons (lol@theryhme) are also popular ones. Can always use the RASA and if you don't like em order new ones and compare and give some feedback to the forums here too for future reference.

Ek Gtx 580 block $110
Xspc rs360 radiator $50
Xspc X2o Pump/resorvoir combo $50
Some barbs and clamps $30ish
Distilled water $10ishPT Nuke $7
Tubing $15

Which totals to about $272

So, I would just get the rx360 kit for like $40 more or so, and just use the cpu block. If you do buy the rx360 kit though, you also need to get some pt nuke and some distilled water.
don't know where u buy your distilled, but i can get it at walmart for $1 a gallon, and that fills the loop 2-3 times. and if your gona get a 580 and possib ly cpu in the future (you know u will want to dont lie to yourself ) then get the RX360 not RS360

Wait if I buy the RX 360 kit and the EK waterblock does it come with everything I need? or do I need barbs, clamps, tubes, stuff like that?

Yeah the RX is the one you want unless space is at a premium or you wont be adding more than 1 cpu and 1 gpu then the RS is fine. The RX are able to run off much more heat than the RS series, and can typically handle 1 cpu/2 gpu where the RS is 1 cpu/1 gpu.

The rasa kit gives you:

Fans,
Rad,
Pump/Res,
CPU block,
Barbs,
Clamps,
Clear tubing,
mounting brackets,
and the other screws.

Since you want a GPU you just need the purchase that EK GPU block seperatly and you can add your cpu in if you would like. Also if you want colored tubing you need to buy some of that.

Yes it does very nicely although I lost the use of my top most 5.25" bay which I really could care less about. Here is a pic of my current set up got parts on the way to add more water cooling goodness. Also planning on painting my case and sleeveing all my cables. Might even mod a 240rad in the bottom if I pick up another 5970 later this year.
