Hey everyone, I was wondering which of the xspc water cooling kits would offer the best performance (excluding the full copper options). I was looking at this one:

Main site: http://www.xs-pc.com/watercooling-kits/raystorm-750-rx3...

Where I saw it for the cheapest Price: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/xsra750rxwak1.html

The other thing is does the kit include everything I need? I think from what I read it does. Also, I started looking for online stores that sell them, but found various prices ($299, $209, $315 all CAN prices) and was wondering if this makes any sense to anyone because I don't see why they all are different prices.

This will be my first attempt at water cooling, I am excited but do not want to rush in buying something I do not want.

Thanks in advance for the help and info.

Make sure ur case has 3 continous 120mm fan brackets

It include everything just u need a thermal coolant


B sure that u can take the risk of managing a custom loop

If u r unsure then get a swifttech 330

Well you picked the best bang for your buck right out of the starting gate. You would be hard pressed to find a better deal than the one you've mentioned. The big plus is the expandability of this kit if in the future you want to add a gpu into the loop. The RX line of radiators are optimized for low to medium speed fans so your rig won't sound like your on the flight deck of an Aircraft carrier.

Alright thanks for re-assuring my decision! :) 

As for making sure it fits, I am buying a new build from scratch and have found the NZXT 810 switch to be the case I was going to go with, I believe from what I have read it will fit in a push/pull config. Can anyone confirm? or recommend an alternative? (oh and I will be buying thermal paste so I'm good there as well)

Thanks for the quick replies! Planning on ordering everything tomorrow once I am confident in all my choices.
