Its pointless, just save the money and choose a better cpu and fans.

Water cooling isn't as simple as you think, do some research before you make a purchase.

do you plan on cooling both the video card and cpu? because if you just wanted to cool the cpu and do mild overclocking with a "wow factor" Then a single fan radiator mounted to the back of the case would be something to think about. Because most cases have a 120mm fan mount in the rear.

You really want to head over to XtremeSystems Forums - Powered by vBulletin and look at the water cooling section to get some basics down.

If you want to choose between those 2 systems (I cringe ) Then I think the Swiftech would be a better option.
