Unless you manually modify your PSU for watercooling(taking into consideration any live heatsinks) I think CPU, GFX, mobo, RAM and HDD is pretty much all you would want to do... unless you could find something in your optical drive worthy enough..

Well, you can watercool plenty of things things.. Like a beaver! That is if you cared to make a suit for it with tubes and such running through it. It is mostly just a matter of fabricating or otherwise adapting any parts that did not exist before. Unless I am mistaken NASA uses water cooled/heated suits for "spacewalks" right?

It just depends on your determination, wallet, skills, etc.

So you'd better talk to the Cptn. and let him build your loop accordingly. You can add a block on the GPU (which I'll be doing as soon as they are in stock) and a block on the NB (which is very helpful in oc'ing). BTW, it's pointless to water cool ram sticks and HDDs. Not enough heat load.

Nope, still awaiting a call from NCIX about the price of the 4870 blocks (I need 2...). NB means NorthBridge.
