Why bother with water cooling? You've already got the best cooling system out there. Water cooling won't make it much quieter or cooler, but will just cost you a boatload of money and create the possiblity of losing everything to a tiny leak...
You really don't need a water cooling system for that overclock, the Megahalem will do just fine. However if you are absolutely set on getting a water cooling system, I would recommend one of the pre-assembled kits like the the CoolIT Systems DM-1000 Domino A.L.C. They're cheap, work well, and because they're already assembled, you don't have to worry about creating a loop, checking for leaks, mounting radiators and pumps and whatnot.
I have a very simple and cheap water cooled system, I paid $79.00 for it. I am referring to the Corsair H50 system, it is a self contained water system. I am running an I7 920 overclocked to 3.8, my idle temp is 34c under load I hit 58c, I think it helps that I have the cooler Master case. I am running the fans on the H50 in the push-pull configuration. Why spend all that money for regular water cooled system when this runs just as good, and it's very quiet.
