Looks like a good build so far! I do have a concern though = your power supply. A mATX (or SFX) power supply normally doesn't have the strong 12v rails (probably just one 12v rail actually) so I'm be a bit worried about how much current your watercooling setup is going to pull. And you've already bought your processor? I might've suggested getting a newer "e" processor that uses much less power and has a lower TDP than the regular X2 AM2 ones. Just some food for thought!
