If you just want to cool the CPU and are not interested in upgrading to GPU cooling, I would recommend just going with the Rasa RX360 kit... it will be cheaper. However that setup looks good to me if you prefer it.

I would not recommend paying that much for water... Just use distilled water and it will work fine with a killcoil or some biocide.

thanks, i was considering possibly adding my gpu to the config in the future, i will just get normal distilled water then, (i was just a bit paranoid).

i think i will go for the custom config, is there anything i should change?
