I planning on purchasing my first water-cooled system this week. I have read reviews, posts, and everything possible to find the best parts available....but, it seems that almost anything will work 'ok'.

So, what are the components that seem to give the best performance??? I have an idea on what I want: BeCooling Copper block, BeCooling Tank, DangerDen Cooling Cube, Eheim1046 inline pump, Artic Silver, Copper T-Bird shim, Sunon 120mm fans, and the usual other stuff.

Are my choices ok?? or can you guys recommend better products??
I know exactly what you guys are going to say about my pic: "Buy some rounded cables, you idiot !!" ....hehe. Don't worry, there already on the way.
All water cooling gear is great! But if you must have the "best", I know a lot of folks that love the DangerDen gear. I have never heard anything bad about it either. Seems you just can't go wrong with DangerDen.
