I would go with kitty's second build o.O
and I would go for a cpu nice air cooler like thermaltake hr-02 macho or noctua nh-d14 they both cool the same and are respective kings at their prices.
going for 2 monitors at least have them same resolution, size and specs.
pretty awesome builds posted here.

I would still keep away from water cooling as long as you are not going to cool gpus in sli as well.
if the radiator is set on the outside part to get fresh air the cpu will be cooled well but the heat will be thrown on the mainboard and gpu. if you stick radiator with the vents on inside part the radiator will collect heated air and cpu cooling won't go as well.
Stick rather with thermaltake, noctua or phanteks air coolers which can cool damn well up to 5ghz instead of getting headaches with water cooling. water cooling is meant only if you really need it. if you are hard ocer then go for nitro cooling.
