Default New build, need help when it comes to watercooling

Hey guys, I'm deciding to build a pc and I wanted to add water cooling since it will keep my pc a lot cooler and quiet. So to start here are my parts
1. Case: Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1 Black Steel/ Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
2. Mother Board: Newegg.com - ASUS P8Z68-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
3. GPU: Newegg.com - XFX HD-699A-ENF9 Radeon HD 6990 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card with Eyefinity
4. PSU: Newegg.com - XFX ProSeries P1-1000-BELX 1000W ATX12V V2.2 & ESP12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
5. CPU: Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I52500K
6. SSD: Newegg.com - Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
7. RAM: Newegg.com - CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1600C9
8. Hard Drive: Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500413AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
9. DVD Burner: Newegg.com - ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS - CD / DVD Burners
So I was wondering if anyone had a good guide on how to do it and if anyone could link me a good complete watercooling system or the parts because I'm a noob when it comes to watercooling and it would be awesome if someone would teach me how and what to do/buy. Thank you a lot guys :D

In was thinking about watercooling only. The 2k is not impossible with fancy parts, but 1k is more like it for complete custom build.

Hey daz I was thinking of buying EK Complete Watercooling kit H3O HF 360 EN (Triple Rad) EK Complete Watercooling kit H3O HF 360 EN (Triple Rad) [H3O-360HF-EN] - $289.99 : DazMode, The Best Canadian PC Watercooling and Modding Store! and lets say I buy a gpu water block. would I need to add anything extra? Like more tubes or what? and btw lets say I leak test and it gets on one of my parts, would it ruin it? thank you for your time :D

When you are leak testing, you do not power up the system. If the components get a bit wet, ensure they are completely dried off before powering up.

You only power up the PSU which in turns powers the pump.
