If you are experienced with building PCs, of course build it yourself.

Building a PC is easy. But i would say that if you are planning on installing a Liquid Cooling system, you better know what you're doing.
There is very little if any margin for error with liquid cooling. Make 1 mistake with a tube not clamped properly and you'll be posting a thread here about how to salvage andd dry out socked components inside your case.

Liquid Cooling installation isn't for everyone. It take a bit of knowledge and experience. Have monarch build it for you.

The stock cooling system shoud be entirely adequate for the processor. Liquid cooling is only significant if you plan to overclock and generate a bunch of excess heat. If not, forget it. Put in an additional low-RPM chassis fan or two and be happy.
