Holy hell, they’re expensive. I know, ARGB is the new RGB, hard lines, blah blah blah.
But heck, I built my loop (with mainly Alphacool parts, except for the GPU block and fans from EK, the pump from Phobya and the fluid from Aquacomputer) for around 500-550€, including the GPU block. Not ARGB and with soft tubings, but still, it’s a complete (CPU+GPU) loop.

What a rip-off. Shoddy quality at premium prices.

Every computer that I've built over the past 2 decades, minus one, have all been air cooled.

I've never built one with hard lines before. I would be a sucker and buy this kit.

Go with soft tubes first. Easy and cheap to build, easy to maintain, still looks cool.

It seems that way. Soft tubes would appear to be more forgiving if you need to move/rearrange hardware. What diameter tubing are you using in your profile pic?

That’s why I built mine with those! They’re 16/13mm.

Hi,
Already been found out those XD5 pumps are half the L/m of a real D5 meaning totally useless for max cooling options.
