There sold out of every kit except one.

That doesn't give me many options.

I'm going with the coolermaster HAF 932

Can anyone recommend or have any personal experience with danger den products?

have you already got that case?
it doesn't look like it'll give you a lot of options for putting a radiator in. just a single 120mm outside the back.

I'd try and look for something like this:
EK Supreme waterblock
Swiftech MCP655
Thermochill PA120.2 or 120.3 (depending on case)

No i haven't purchased the case yet but i watched a video and it had a good place to mount the Radiator outside the case.

well, check back regurally. they are allmost all the time out of stock of everything.

you can fit a MCR 220 up on the top easily.

Petra's Tech Shop (apogee GTZ)

Petra's Tech Shop (MCW355)

for a cpu loop. just add some tubing, like this stuff, and some clamps

but only a 120mm.

The Cosmos S can fit a 3 x 120mm radiator at the top
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER COSMOS S RC-1100-KKN1-GP Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

the Thermochill radiator's have the best performance:

Phil that Water block is for LGA 775. Can you recommend a AM2+ socket?

the EK supreme is a better waterblock
Petra's Tech Shop

It is a more restrictive block though, which is better suited in its own loop. But that's what you're planning anyway.

But anyway, if you want a watercooling system, it's worth the investment to get good stuff first, which will last.

well in reality they both cool about the same. and like you said, the EK is restrictive. so if you ever want to water cool your GPU you would not want to get a restrictive GPU block. like the MCW60
