That second pick is by far the best (Lan warrior II-67). Fastest out of the box plus the most overclocking potential.

Humble suggestion, budget another $60 for the Corsair 650TX power supply.

I have to agree with dpunisher about the Lan Warrior II-67 because architecture of the Sandy Bridge which makes it dominating and the price of it.

If it were me: I would take the system with the water cooling. I do not want a system shipped with a big heavy air cooler attached to the CPU/motherboard. Bad things happen when UPS (OOPS) drops that thing from 3 feet. Things break, rattle around inside the case and wreak havoc. Been there, done that. Get it with the water cooler, see how it works for awhile. Don't like it, put it on Ebay, get your $40-50 out of it and get a Hyper 212+, or similar cooler, and throw it on there. I looked at that case and it has a huge access port behind the CPU socket on the mobo tray. It is a snap to put another cooler on there. $40 to $50 for the water cooler, $35 for a Hyper 212+, you can come out ahead.

Overclocking: Why would you pay those clowns to overclock it for you? You can do it yourself. "K"s are unlocked. Overclocking don't get much easier.
