Get the RX240 kit if ur casing allow the thicker rad - better performance with low speed fans which would be more quiet.
If possible, change the integrated pump/res to separate ones (vibration expected).
Tubing - u happy with just clear ones?
u would need either PT Nuke or killcoil if u are using distilled water.

So many project worklogs for ur reference
some interesting stuff for u to read (courtesy of bro K-dash):

You wont be able to fit a rx in that case without modding it. I suggest to mount in externally bah

are the difference in performance so much between the rs240 and rx240?
as i really prefer to have everything in my case to look neat.
and yes clear tubing is fine as long its easy to work with and not flex easily, since my case has no window.

u mean with an integrated res and pump will have vibrations or seperated then got vibrations? i just want the quietest solution, and will probably just be cooling my cpu because if i dismantle the stock cooling on my gpu that would void the warranty right?

just wondering why people say water cooling is more quiet than air cooling?
i mean, both air or water cooling also use fans, which is the source of noise.
the reason why im thinking of wc is just for fun and to experience/learn something new, but honestly dont expect it to be any quieter. unless someone can explain to me why its quieter compared to my current air cooled setup?

depending on what fans u using... and rad too.
if u include GFX loop, might be able to lessen the noise from the GFX cooler (especially reference ones).
