Hiya folks, I'm getting ready to re-build my PC for liquid-cooling, but wanted to optimize as much as I could with software first. Can you guys point out some good programs that I could use?

What kind of "liquid cooling?"
What are your system specs?
What do you want this software to do?

To be honest I don't know what kind of liquid cooling I am going to go with yet, I'm still in the research phase of my build.

Intel Core) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz quad-core, ~3.3GHz
8GB Vengeance RAM
Asrock Z68 extreme4 gen3 motherboard
IceQX 6950 (AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series)
Windows 7 home SP 1

I want my PC to run as efficiently as possible, with a minimum of software bottlenecks.

If you have not build your PC, then buy the HD 7850 instead of HD 6950 and a z77 MoBo. Custom liquid cooling is difficult to maintain and setup if you are a newbie. Get an air cooler for the CPU and a well ventilated case to keep everything cool

Alas, it is already built. I recently came into a bit more money and decided to start dumping into my PC hence the liquid cooling. figured it was a good idea to experiment around with what I had now rather than try to learn on a brand new setup. I was thinking about getting the Cosmos II as well, thoughts?

That is most certainly an interesting case, not too sure how well it would work in my hole though :(
