LOL...dont get a coolermaster, or thermaltake, or corsair. Plus 140$ is WAY overpriced for what that is.

For about 15$ more you can get an amazing loop by a trusted brand-
Danger Den :: Water Cooling Kits :: Configured Kits and Specials :: MAZE4 Intro Kit

I gurantee you that that kit will work great. Water cooling is just something you cant go cheap on.
