Personally I'd go with the Corsair all-in-one solution if I were you. Antec isn't exactly known for great quality products.
100% agreed with this man... I have a custom loop and one time i had it leak all over my GPU(I used plain distilled water) and I had no problems whatsoever that GPU still runs perfect to this day.

And the leak was my own fault for not using the right tubing the wall thickness was too thin so it didnt fit snug on my barbs
