I'd be really careful using a core only block on the GPU as the 4870 gets pretty hot around the VRM's and the memory. If you do you'll, need good airflow over high quality heatsinks. For the VRMS I think the enzotech copper Mosfets will probably work quiet well although there are some other good other options out there. Personally I'd go full cover.

As for your loop I'm not sure you need two radiators yet for the cpu, nothbridge and GPU core. As Babs said use the PA120.3 mounted to the back with a radbox and some good fans. If you were using one or two gpus with a full cover block and NB block then another loop just for the quad cpu would be a good idea.
