Two things you may want to check out from FrozenCPU website

You can buy a watercooled kit either with an 240 or 360 radiator kit set from XSPC or select and check out the block from the CPU and the XSPC blocks are good
An EK waterblock for your 680GTX but (you didn't list the model or brand or if its a Reference or non-Reference PCB card)
The ram you don't need to watercooled. Make sure you go to the watercooling Guide here on the forums
Now for pumps, Yes A MCP655 CONTROL PUMP will be fine.

Why the need for a MB block in the loop? And why would you watercool RAM?

The watercooling sticky contains a detailed section on how to calculate your radiator needs based on total loop TDP.
