So im new to all this water cooling stuff and im about to build a very nice gaming rig,

But i would like to water cool it in the future. i live in Australia and in summer its gets really hot.
I would like to get water cooling to ensure my part stay nice and healthy :D  lol

What im asking is what would i need to get to water cool my cpu - gpu ( 2x gtx 580 in sli) and everything else i would need.

Could you reccomend parts/cost of individual parts or kits. please no Newegg links because they dont ship to Australia.

Here are my specs

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD7B3 Z68 MB
Intel Core i7 2600K LGA1155
8Gb DDR3 1600Mhz G.Skill 2X4Gb
2 x GeForce GTX580 1536Mb in sli
Antec Twelve Hundred FULL - which supports watercooling
Corsair 1000W HX-1000 ATX



Thanks in advanc :)

Read Stickies below in my signature. This should help get you started with some concepts that are very basic but needed in order to help you understand what you need.
