DangerDen and Swiftech make really good watercooling parts.
You could go here and configure your own kit

I would try to get a radiator that has dual 120mm fans and also I would suggest 1/2 tubing, that alows better waterflow for better cooling. The only reason I would suggest not getting watercooling is if you go to a lot of LAN's. Other then that watercooling cools a lot better then air and is also usually a lot quieter.

TRHe nirthbrisge chipset would be located on top of it. If it's over, then there's trouble
