I am going to attempt to get a build log together for my next computer. I'm attempting water cooling for the first time and am jumping in with the EK-Kit X360.
I will try and give you a n00b's impression (that's me) and I'm sure I'll be asking for advice.
Please let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer.
Water Cooling: EK-Kit X360 - Purchased
Case: Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Tempered Glass (Black)

I will be reusing my SSDs, mouse, keyboard, and my PSU from my current build. Give me your thoughts on my parts list.
I have decided to return my Phanteks case in favor of the Lian-Li PC-011. It was released a week after I purchased the Luxe. I should get it in house next Wednesday (15 Feb).
I redid my build in the ROG version of this case.
