For gaming, the i7 is overkill. Games don't use HT and won't for a long time. Use the $ and pour it in to the GPU for a GTX 670. It is where the performance counts in a gaming system. I would not recommend RAIDing SSDs as you do not see a big increase in speed. 16GB of RAM is also useless for gaming. Games have just started using 6GB of RAM and 16GB is many many years away. The Kuhler is better than the H100, but if you really want WC, don't use closed-loops. Use something like a RASA kit or go full air.
