I don't support water cooling so I'm not going to comment on that, but why would you put your storage drives in a RAID-0 array? And why such a small SSD? I think you should reconsider your configuration.

Im looking for water cooling comments, but if you must know. I have my storage in RAID-0 for performance and use a 2tb Seagate GoFlex USB 3.0 to back the array up. As for the SSD I will be purchasing a Kingston Hyper X Sata 3 120GB with tax return.
