Is water cooling have a great impact on ability to OC?

FOr example a custom water cool loop cost around $450~$650 (with 2 GPU and 1 cpu)

It it really worth it ?? how much real world performance i can expected to gain?
(in term of max performance gain vs money spend)

Generally speaking, the better you can cool your hardware, the higher the overclock you can achieve. This is extremely true of the CPU. Ive never actually OC'd my GPU so I cant talk too much on that, but yeah it has a huge impact.

also, please take some time to read through the watercooling FAQ thread, you will learn a lot about watercooling pro's & cons.

Almost every question above, it's purely specific to your setup and ability. Not all overclocking is limited by heat...most of it (90%+) is user ability/knowledge and specific hardware used and actual binning of those components.

Preferably you'll want to run a dual loop setup. But if your gonna run a single loop, you really should use 2 RADs and make sure your pump is strong enough to handle it.

i going to use 1 x 240mm & 2 x 120mm in a phantom 410 case will it fit??

It may fit but sufficient it will not be, read sticky, calculate TDP, work out required radspace

FX8350 = 125 tdp and gv it 75 tdp for OC headroom (200 tdp)
2x gtx 670 =340tdp OC headeroom +60 tdp for both (400 tdp)

according to http://skinneelabs.com/assets/images/Radiators/XSPC/RX3...
with only 3 x 120 radiator at 600 tdp & with yate loon D12sl12 at 1000rpm temperature delta will be 17'C
with 4x 120 radiator it should be lower then that.

For pump, according to http://www.overclock.net/t/1108918/what-can-my-pump-han...
Radiators: 3x 0.20 PSI each = 0.60PSI
CPU Block: 1.1 PSI
GPU block: 2x 0.9 PSI = 1.8PSI
Fittings: 0.3 PSI for the entire loop
Tubing: 2 x0.5 PSI per meter = 1PSI

Total PSI 4.8PSI
i'm going with MCP35X Stock: 6.52 PSI

i should be ok ?

As a rule you should be aiming for a Delta of 10'C,
get better if you can but 10 is the normal W/c target, I'd be surprised if the Yates didn't need to run at full speed to get you cooled on a single 360,
More normal for a Cpu/2xGpu loop is a 360+240 set up although a cooler and quieter running loop would be 2x360's
with three blocks and two rads I'd definitely be going for the Mcp655 or Pmp500 level pumps, flow rate matters :)
