Ok so im in the process of finishing my PC build i have evrything and before i start up for the first time i figured i would install a water cooling system. I need to know if i should just cool the CPU or the whole MOBO? I plan on OC the CPU and memory.

SPECS:
MOBO: ASUS P6X58D PREMIUM
CPU: I7 920
CASE: CORSAIR OBSIDIAN SERIES 800D
MEMORY: OCZ GOLD 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-PIN DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000)
HEAT-SINK: COOLER MASTER V8 (SOON TO BE UPGRADED TO A FULL SYSTEM WATER COOLING)
HDD: WESTERN DIGITAL CAVIAR BLACK SATA III 1TB
PSU: ENERMAX REVOLUTION 85+ 1050W
VIDEO CARD: SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X HD 5870 RADEON

Any and all suggestions welcome including whole liquid cooling systems.

I would just cool the CPU. Using one rad that uses 2X fans something like this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835108086&cm_re=radiator-_-35-108-086-_-Product

If you want you may cool the video card as well, tho it is not necessary. You would also need the appropriate water block for your card. If you want to do that I would also recommend installing another rad (one that uses 1X fan like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835108114&cm_re=radiator-_-35-108-114-_-Product) into the loop.

Hope this helps

I agree, just cool the CPU for now. No reason to add un-needed restriction and heat to the loop. Temperature of the NB on X58 boards does not affect the overclock anyway. That is more for the older core 2 boards where the FSB was connected to the NB.
