Default Re: Water cooling... it is really starting to spike my interest-

Radiator = Swiftech MCR120
Reservoir = Swiftech MCRES-Micro
Pump = Swiftech MCP350
Water Block = Swiftech Apogee GTX
All good parts, but you may want to think about a MCR220 instead of the 120. The 120 may not be sufficient for an overclocked Quad. If you don't have room for a 220, then go with one of these to get similar performance:

i7-2700k @ 5.0 GHz
Nvidia GeForce 570 2.5GB Tri-SLI
Asus P67 WS Revolution (Tri-SLI)
OCZ Vertex SSD x 4 (Raid 5)
G.Skill 8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz
PC Power & Cooling 950W PSU
