High end puts your list at only the Swiftech X3 and Alphacool Eisbaer. Both are high quality parts available in their liquid cooling lineups, all copper and are easily expandable to another rad and/or GPU should you be so inclined in the future. I personally prefer the Swiftech units, but they do have the drawback of being saddled with terrible fans included (they chose argeebee over performance on them), so it should essentially be looked at as having no fans included. But, at the price, adding some fans doesn't break the bank, and allows you to choose the fans you like.

And given the fact that you can buy the same HWL branded rad for 33% less (or you can say that the Corsair costs 50% more, your choice), one would have to be a full blown imbecile to buy the Corsair rads.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

I've been following Optimus closely, but I haven't seen their announcement of a self contained unit.....which is specifically what the OP is asking for. Should he decide to go custom, yeah, Optimus all the way.

a 280/360 H115i/H150i is barely enough for a 9900K with a very mild OC. If you're getting a 10980XE and plan to OC it then either build a proper loop (kit or otherwise) or don't plan on OCing.

A Swiftech H360 X3 with an added 240 or 280 should do a nice job while keeping cost and complexity down.

Alternatively you could also get an Alphacool Eisbear LT360 with an Eiswolf 240. Super easy to install with the quick disconnects(no need to drain the units) and gives you pump redundancy and a GPU block for as little as €265.

The downside is that the pumps are a tad weaker than the ones in the Swiftech X3 or Eisbaer Extreme. But having 2 of them should compensate for it a little and again, gives you redundancy.

If you have no interest in water cooling the gpu, you can get just a 240mm rad with quick disconnects from alphacool as well to add to the Eisbear.

I think you need actually agree on what you want. AIO or AIO expandable or WC kit. Personally, I'd go down the kit route. EKWB overall quality has gone down. A lot. While people advocate optimus, I am more inclined to watercool blocks but new build wise would 100% check out optimus and give it a shot.

1.) Just to be clear, I will only be cooling the CPU.
The GPU will probably be air cooled, since I don't want to void any warranties taking the card apart.

Self-Contained is another way of saying "CLosed-Loop". Or a prebuilt loop.
From what I gather, pre-Built loops tend to be more reliable.

Since this will be run at a place of business I can't be changing out the cooling liquid everyn few years.
(Once its built, thats it. No changes...)

I would suggest 280mm as the fans tend to be more easier on noise levels.
EKWB and Alphacool do have some really good systems. Personally, Corsair with Noctua fans is the best mix of performance and noise levels.
You can't really go crazy on AIO. Custom loops, can easily blow your budget.

This looks like a very nice solution! I just need to make sure that the tubing is long enough.

Sorry, it needs to be closed-loop...

Any kit that has the pump not on the block, i.e. Alphacool Eisbar, Raijintek Orcus. Can be refilled if needed.
500W of cooling?!?! Is this normal for watercooling? That seems extremely high!

The RMi/RMx uses an improved version of the same platform but are sold at a lower price so the HXi is an overpriced ripoff so pick something else unless you got it dirt cheap

As for CLC coolers
https://www.overclock.net/forum/61-w...lc-cooler.html
I will be replacing the power supply with something better. I normally go with corsair power supplies, but the high-end ones seem to be having major problems lately.
(Many people report they are dieing in just a few months.)

Thank you for the article. Great read.
But this makes me want to stay away form watercooling... X)

I will definitely be getting a new power supply. But from what everyone keeps explaining, I am not sure a 1200w is even enough....
