Ok, first off, that gold fluid is not designed for longterm use in a loop, its predominantly used for showcases at tradeshows,
But I like the colour scheme and to get the full effect here you are going to have to up your game, a lot
Hard drive, paint the steel cover black
Optical drives paint the internal surfaces black
Northbridge/Southbridge and I/o sockets gold
Remove the labelling from the Psu
Whichever blocks you use for the loop should be gold/black
are you W/c'ing just the Cpu? as those cards wouls fit the colour scheme I'm assuming you are keeping them as is, or modding them to have W/c whilst keeping the shrouds?
And the case you choose, black as night, big, no leds, maybe white cathodes to bring up the shine on gold parts/paint
but I see a lot of paintwork on this one, highlighting Psu/drives/blocks etc,
and it absolutely cannot look half-arsed in any way,
are you up to it?

You will also be modifying the case somewhat, just to forewarn you :p 
So check out the large fulltowers with black internals, removable hard drive cages are nice, but not essential as you can remove 'non-removable' ones anyway

I would suggest a clean looking case such as this,

Ok do you think blue liquid cooling would look nice in this build?
Which paint would i use to paint the HDD,Drives and north and south bridge?
Removing the label must be easy
Ok gold and black plates?
Im just going to OC the CPU
Ok so i have just seen this case and i think this may do the job > http://www.scan.co.uk/products/nzxt-phantom-410-black-p...
and i will add some white cathodes to the inside of my case
which parts to highlight on the PSU etc?
Yes i am up to it.

Edit i have just seen your edit i will look for a different case.
