Question Which water cooling kit should I choose?

i want to get water cooling, and lets say that YOU had to pick from one of these kits. which one would you get? what is the best?
Please keep in mind that i want to overclock my Intel Q9550 2.83ghz quad core to 4ghz or around that area.




OR, should i not choose a kit and get the parts seperatly? if this is the way to go can you please suggest to me all the necessary parts that i would need, (i only want to watercool my cpu right now). i want a very good watercooling system but dont want to spend too much money. THANK YOU VERY MUCH! game on...

If I really had to choose out of those 3 it'd be the Thermaltake ProWater 850i.

The 760i seems convienient as it slots in a few 5 1/4 inch bays but i'm not liking the cramp fittings of the components.

But i'd really try to source better components.

Just to make it clear, water cooling is only worth it if the following applies to you:

- You know what you're doing when it comes to OC'ing, and I don't just mean the basics, I mean you really know what you're doing.
- You get all your parts custom. For a start, you can get much better setup for the money, and secondly, a similarly performing kit would cost much more
- You're not getting the most out of your CPU with just air cooling (this most often applies to the 45nms as the safe voltage limit is often reached before temps go beyond safe.
