Which Self Contained Liquid Cooling Kit should I get for my CPU?

I have finally decided to give liquid cooling a shot again.
(I haven't touched liquid cooling in over 10 years, since one of my past builds was completely destroyed due to a leak.)

To avoid confusion, Slef contained means the same as "Closed-Loop".

I am looking for easy to install, high-end, Self Contained, Liquid Cooling CPU Kit suggestions for the below build.
(As of right now, price does not matter. So go crazy.)

Case: Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced
Motherboard: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI EXTREME OMEGA EATX LGA2066 Motherboard

Processor: Intel Core i9-10980XE 3 GHz 18-Core Processor
RAM: VENGEANCE® LPX 64GB (4 x 16GB) DDR4 DRAM 2133MHz C13 Memory Kit - Black
M.2 Drive: Pending
SSD Drives: (3x) Samsung SSD 860 EVO 2TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-76E2T0B/AM)
Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 T2, 80+ TITANIUM 1600W
Fans: (7x) Nidec Servo Gentle Typhoon D1225C12B5AP 120mm 1850 rpm Silent Case Fan
Cooling: Pending

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Two lines of thought I would suggest.
240/280/360mm AIO or CLC solutions.
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.

I myself want to get into watercooling, but I have never done it before. And trying to not blow the budget to the sky, There is the custom loops dressed as AIO, the Eisbaer Extreme. 280 rad with bequiet silent wings 3 fans, their D5 (ish) pump and reservoir in a self contained unit. Includes cpu block, fittings and soft tubing. There is also a core version where you get the block you want and fittings and tubing

Something expandable because you won’t be satisfied with a closed loop.

You can just about forget overclocking on a 10980XE with a premade AIO, you'll need about 500w of cooling to start.

Any kit that has the pump not on the block, i.e. Alphacool Eisbar, Raijintek Orcus. Can be refilled if needed.

Something about two "very"s before "expensive" makes me cringe.

I'm not watercooling anymore, either. Lost 2-3 mobos + a chip or 2 due to my "mixture" eating away at the thin-milled XSPC cold plates I was using.

EK makes better blocks.

I could set up a bong for $225 or so with a GPU and CPU loop. Should still have an EK universal GPU block, using a Danner Mag5 pump with a filter I rig up on the intake.

A bong has pretty much unlimited cooling capacity. They really work, but women look at them funny.

crosair rebrands much of their product, and includes better radiators (HW Labs for now) than EK ever well. I do expect them to bait and switch us on the radiators at some point. HWL will want more loot on the next contract re-up, and at that point Corsair will go all AU

avoid stuff with aluminum if you ever plan to grow the system out. 99% of product is NOT aluminum, it's how EKWB pinches pennies to get AIOs into the market.

oh, and stick to barbs n hose. Cheapest and most secure way to get runs done.

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.

Off topic but the PSU you picked is worse AND more expensive than many other options so its literary one of the worst things you can buy as there are better units that are cheaper
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
