Well the only concern I'd have is over using Mayhems Aurora for 24/7 use. It's designed for showcasing over a few days. Read here for more info. I'd get Mayhems Pastel instead.

You've gone totally overboard with a lot of this stuff :P You only need one of those radiators, not both.

A motherboard block? Well if you like the way it looks then go for it!

Good pumps, good CPU/GPU blocks.

Thanks for the input! I know I don't need all of this, but it's for fun, and because I can basically

I was slightly conserned about the aurora, but I've seen videos on youtube of people using it for 8 months without any problems, and leaving it off for 5 weeks plus, then turning the system on again only for the coolant to be completely fine. Im gonna go with it and see what happens, and if it turns out it settles within my loop or something I'll just get mayhems pastel and make deep red out of that he made a nice youtube tutorial on it so...

The mobo block I know is completely unneeded, but I want a complete watercooled look and I don't like the little fan on the rampage 4 extreme I got...I wish it werent there
It's mostly because I can

why not use the Raystorm GPU block? or do you have a non-reference GPU PCB?

that's one big case and when you get it all installed. it'll still be a big case and all
you parts will look small. why not breakout the res to display the coolant in a
larger scale. all cramped up in the smallish window of the bayres and you won't
see much "effect" in the aurora (if used).
