You'll need a very goo chip to do 4GHz on a Q6600, if you buy retail, you'll have to go through quite a few before you find one good enough. Another option is to look through places like XS and OCForums, a lot of the members have gem chips for sale and you could look for a 1.2 VID Q6600. Either that, or lower your expectations to around 3.6GHz.
Water will definitely be needed for 4, but you could get away with a very good air cooler, such as the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme for 3.6.

Also, go with one of the new P45 boards: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131296

Yes, exactly, those are gems. The average Q6600 (with tolerable voltages) will max out around 3.4GHz-3.8GHz. Only the best will reach 4 and above.
You'll have to search around for one. There's always the new E0 Q9550's.

A P45 will do a much better job with high FSBs and quads. As it's a lot of strain on the north bridge. Just get a wireless PCI card.

To make water cooling worth it, you'll need to buy the parts separately. You'll also need to spend a lot of money on it.

Pure water is best for liquid cooling. Obviously, you'll need some additives etc. Vegetable oil?

Pure water is a good idea, unlike tap water pure water isn't conductive. It is in fact the impurities such as the salts in normal water that makes it conductive. Either way I'd think long and hard before liquid cooling ANY of my machines.
