Hello there!

After some years of gaming on an old rig, it's time to replace my whole system. The budget will be ~2k EUR, with watercooling components included.
I have been trying to find good components that has RGB and fit with the blue/white ish themed rig, perhaps someone has some idea's what I could swap out to make my pc more "eye catching" or point out which parts could be change to make it better.

Watercooling: Will be using PETG tubes with 360 rads, can't edit it on the picture sadly!

Looks good... PLENTY of radiator there. In fact I wouldn't put a 120/140 on the back... and you can easily go down to a total of 5x120mm. You are only cooling 275-300W with the gpu and cpu overclocked.

I'd get ddr4 3000 ram or so.. 2133 is ddr3 speeds. :p...not that it matters much.

Remove the 1x 120 fan on the back? Wouldn't there be empty space right there? And on the ram, I have been doing some research. Got two options for that since I want to use LED modules
1. Corsair Vengeance LED CMU16GX4M2C3000C15 (103 EUR)
2. Geil Super Luce White 16GB DDR4-3000 CL15 kit ( 90euro)

Both seems identical, however Corsair does look better but with the price of 13 euro difference

EarthDog is saying to drop the single radiator at the back, but keep the fan.

Ah, messed up with the paint picture I think. I will be only placing 1x 360 mm rad on the top. Rest I will fill out with fans only (e.g. 3x fan on the front and 1 on the back).

Hmm I just noticed the D5 pump+res , has not a mount bracket for my case at all. Will have to see how to solve that problem.
