    Temps wont be hugely different to the phantek, it's mainly the expandability that will be affected as you can probably get away with adding a GPU to the loop :)

    The OcUK V8 kit will be perfect :D

    Custom water will (nearly) always be better than air cooling. You say he can only fit a 240 rad in his case, what case does he have? It may be possible to fit a 120 on the back as well?

    The pump and res are better.

    Can he not fit a 200 mm rad at the front?

    requires abit of modding afaik (looking at a few build logs) what 120rad should he get for the back? any of them a clear winner? was looking at

    EK CoolStream Radiator XT 120 (120.1)

    adding an extra 120rad would need to get another 2 fittings from the spec i had above?

    only 2 fittings and a fan are needed for another rad.

    I would personally go for the EX rad as it is thin and maybe go for a thicker top rad such as an RX/phobya g changer/SR1 or EK XTX
