Good luck dude, I used to water cool, man what a hassle. Not to talk you out or anything but air coolers have come a long way and you won't get completely away from fans, you still need them on your radiator and case for everything else. Water cooling is efficient but never cooler than room temp.

I used to have dual 295's in Quad SLI and those things really put out a lot of heat, it's only when gaming when the 590's put out heat otherwise they are much cooler and quiter than those old 295's. That is when your case fans come in handy.
