Default Water cooling the Cpu

OK i only have a 150$ to blow
I was thinking to get this water cooling set up.

Now, should I go with this? Also is there any other dyes/mixes I should get?
Any Other things?

Thanks

That's a complete kit that has everything you need to get started including coolant. It's aimed at beginners looking to get into liquid cooling and performs very well from what I have read.

Thermaltake kits have aluminum and copper in the same loop which means corrosion. You either go all-copper or all-aluminum. Better off with copper because of it's thermal advantage.

You're much better off with one of these two kits. First one if you can stretch the budget a little.

And sometimes it's better to pick and choose parts instead of getting a one-size-fits-all kit.

The two kits I listed will do it, especially the smaller one.
