The fist option is the best, however if on a budget the 2nd option is fine. Btw, CPU specs?

The second option is enuff. If your summer temps are high you might have to reduce the overclock. But it's enuff and it's quality parts.

I don't like the plastic barbs on the res, they cause issues.

It's a good system and $260 dhipping and $10 for better res barbs. Under $300, a good CPU loop costs about $300.

Check at ALL the stores, take into account shipping. If you can squeeze a 120x3 rad like you picked in the first option, then your great.

You may want to get a 320/360 rad for the i7 920. The i7 run quite hot.
