overkill custom watercooling setup advice

So right now I have a 280mm AIO cooling my 8700k which has been running at 5.1ghz with 1.39vcore 0 avx offset on all cores and 4.8 cache with an idle temp of 27c for the past year. Liquid coolant temp of 24c. My ambient room temps average 18-19c. Im on a bench table so space is not an issue. Based on my research right now I am leaning towards a 560 radiator from hardware labs, specifically the black ice nemesis 560 gtr, koolance 80x240mm 924ml reservoir, and EK-Velocity WS RGB - Narrow ILM cpu block. I have not decided on a pump. Are there better options than the ones I have listed and what pump would you guys recommend? Right now I only plan on cooling cpu and in the future when i decide to cool gpu i will build a separate loop for it. I basically want to get as close to ambient temps as possible dont care about noise or aesthetics performance only. Price is not an issue. Thanks.

Do not buy GTR. They meant to be used with high RPM fans ~2000+ . And i doubt you want to have 2000 rpm fans in your rig.
Buy either GTX or SR2 - they are both well rounded rads.

Any top tier cpu water block will perform +/- the same. Just pick whatever you like more aesthetically. My personal choice - watercool heatkiller IV

As for pump i would go for aquacomputer only - either D5 Next or Aquastream ultimate, cuz they both have amazing built in controller and software.

I actually have noctua industrial 3000rpm fans on my aio right now. I dont care about noise. performance is priority as I do a lot of benching and overclocking.

Get a D5 and don't stress about the CPU block.

I'm way over-radiated here myself and I have two D5's and I noticed little to no real world difference at multiple fan speeds going from a Velocity EK block to a Heatkiller IV Pro. It's a great looking block don't get me wrong and I'd reccomend but it's by no means a must have. Differences are just miniscule.

if you do not mind to have "vacuum cleaner like" sound then of course get GTR. They are by far the best rads for high rpm fans

dual D5 in a serial top, and aquacomputer or heatkiller blocks. EK's been kinda meh as of recent. They haven't been able to keep quality up thru all the growth.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Best R0ach Quote of all time : TLDR: Haswell might be the last legit gaming platform unless mice get their own non-USB interface on some newer architecture.
