Well firstly, let me tell you a little about myself. I am 15 and from Australia. I have previously had crappy laptops, but would like to build my own desktop gaming rig.
Here are the specs:
Graphics Card NVIDIA GTX670 2GB ASUS DCU II TOP $548 Processor INTEL IVY BRIDGE CORE CORE i7 3770K $349 HDD 2TB WESTERN DIGITAL BLACK $188 Power Supply COOLERMASTER SILENT PRO GOLD 800W $179 Water Cooling Kit EK-KIT H3O 360 HFX $315 Mouse RAZER MAMBA 4G $144 Keyboard RAZER BLACKWIDOW ULTIMATE $145 Windows OEM 64BIT WIN7 PROFFESIONAL $138 RAM 16GB KIT 1600 (8GB x 2) G.SKILL CL10 RIPJAWS-X $105 Optical Drive INTERNAL SATA BLU-RAY COMBO PIONEER $68 Motherboard ASUS ROG MAXIMUS V FORMULA $? Case COOLERMASTER COSMOS II ULTRA TOWER $368 Headset RAZER TIAMAT 7.1 $228 Sound Card ASUS ROG XONAR PHOEBUS $219 Additional Fans 9 x SICKLEFLOW 120 2000 RPM RED LED $108
I would appreciate any feedback/recommendations, but my main question is-
Will this radiator fit in the Cosmos II (in a push configuration)?

For gaming, the i7 is not needed. Get the 3570k.
If it is not professional video editing, an i7 is still not needed.
