Taking air coolers out of the equation, what's a viable/compareable alternative to the EK-KIT P360? Is there any other kit out there that's better or equal for less? Much appreciated if someone can provide their experiences with this.

not sure if you want to tinker with hard tubing, but this is $99 less, although you may spend that on fittings and a bend kit.

Yeah, a bend kit can add up the cost. I don't have any tools, so I have to get the bend kit if I go the hard tube route. It also seems more risky if I mess up the tubing...

That's a difficult question to answer because of the host of differences that 2 kits can have. If you don't need the capacity of a D5 pump, you can save $100 by sliding down to their L360 kit (may have been discontinued) with a DDC pump and a 38 mm rad (40 mm on the P360) and black vs clear tubing.

Looks like I don't have a choice. My case only allows a radiator with a maximum thickness of 35mm...

Before we go any further, what do you intend to cool and what case do you have?

The 35 mm limit is for the motherboard with 140 mm based radiators used at the top of the case. The P360/L360 kits, which are 120 mm based, will fit just fine.

Decided to go with the XSPC kit + Bitspower fittings (purchased from TPU forum). I will post more detail pictures later.
