If you haven't already done so, check out the W/c sticky up top, but I have to say damn thats one impressive looking list for a first loop man, way to go :) 
No problems there with any of the parts,
the rads a little O/K for a Cpu only loop, are you adding gfx cards in later?
the only change I will insist upon is the coolant, ditch it.
you want plain distilled water with a killcoil or two, if you can manage a UV cathode as well thats great but no worries if not, just drop some PT Nuke in there to kill any growth,

Definitely adding cards to the system later, I haven't made up my mind yet on which cards it's either
XFX 7970 CF or 670 SLI I don't know just yet.

Either will be shiny, you'll have to scope some reviews for comparisons though and when you do add them, I advise universal blocks, fullcovers are nice but uni's can go onto your next card upgrade,
but you have enough radspace there to handle the addition easily

You got it, as soon as I get the parts installed i'll post pic of the system and the wiring will
be as clean as possible.

On the water cooling I may change a few parts to nickle plated and instead of the big rad.
go with two 360 rads inside the case at the bottom.

I seen some of the nickelplated parts you have and now that I got the new case I'm thinking
about it more and more.

Can't afford to upgrade anything just yet Mal, although I reckon my 6950's should pull a better resale value than most hehe
Chip will prob be next, depending on how Pd turns out
@Earl, I have nickel yes, but avoid EK nickel like its an underage girl
