looks really nice for the price, i just wouldnt bother with the chipset blocks, that way the liquid doesnt get too hot.

^^ If you do it right there shouldn't be a problem

AS for wcing I would go part by part, get a good pump and radiator and you should be very happy.

I would wc the chipsets and cpu. Maybe the GPU if you plan on ocing.

Definitely water cool the chipset, if you don't the motherboard will hold back your OC terribly.
