I'm thinking about water cooling for my rebuild, any suggestions?

I'd suggest that you drop the water cooling idea if this is to be a "use everyday" box ..... with today's efficient components, the world of water cooling is primarily the realm of benchmark banshees. For the most part, we see OC's topping out well before we see thermal limits being approached..... sure you can go higher but at the necessary voltages that ya can't run the machine every day at these levels w/o affecting component life.

It's almost ironic that coolers like this are becoming available just as processors transition to designs that may ultimately render them unnecessary; even overclocked to 5GHz, an Intel Sandy Bridge 2600K doesn't need anywhere near this level of cooling.
