I never understood why people are so enamored with these self contained liquid cooling systems, like the ones corsair make.

They are pretty good at cooling, but they are no better than a big air cooler like a Noctua NH-D14, and they are more expensive.

My recommendation would be to switch your RAM to the G.Skill Ares brand (because they are low profile) and then get a big air cooler.

With all that nice kit, I would also want a great case for it, and the coolermaster is pretty cool!

a liquid cooler is better looking, and also is lighter on your cpu socket

^Adding to above^
And are cheaper and easier to set up than W/C'ing kits, moreso if you go fully custom.
Though, custom is the way to go if you can be bothered, know how and have the money. Even the lower end water cooling kits will easily beat a closed-loop H100.

For the SSD, OCZ Vertex 4.
Samsung 830 is also a good option.

Dont get the MSI 670 Power Edition. Issues have cropped up about their voltage control on the 660Ti and 670 models. Go for a brand like Gigabyte or ASUS.

ASUS card, better cooling than the reference design EVGA uses.

Of the two, I say the Vertex 4. But both are good options.
