If you want to go water get yourself the XSPC RASA RS240 or RS120 kit, that will scratch the itch for a short while Then you can always add more loops to your Mobo/GPU's/etc.

I'm going under water when my new board and Bulldozer arrive

I realized water is not the desired route for my Silverstone Raven, else my GPU's will not be cooled properly on air...

So I think I have to discard going under water

How would watercooling your CPU prevent proper cooling of your GPU's? Is your case that starved for air flow?

What model of the Sapphire HD6970 do you have? ref or non? if it is ref just slightly up the percentage of the fan speed, these cards are great at exhausting air out the back.

The problem is, if you Google my case, you'll see that for me to fit a 360 radiator inside the case I would need to sacrifice my intake fans on the bottom (It is the best air cooling case in the market btw ), but if I take those fans away, I take all the epicness of this case away

So if I went water, I should water my GPU's too, but then again, giving water to my 6970's is stupid of me because I know that I will not have this 6970's for more than 9-10 months

Good headphones and/or a mechanical keyboard.

Naw bud the RASA RS120 is a single 120mm Rad fan, if you set it in push/pull method then it will still also properly exhaust your case.

All you need is a 120mm to watercool your CPU.

A 120MM rad is just like having a Corsair H50/H70, that would not be really an upgrade

Also, I do have Logitech G35 headset which Im quite happy with, and I do not like mechanical keyboards

Get the rx240 kit so you still have one 120mm fan for your video cards.

I had a GTX460 for Physx / Folding@Home, sold it 2 weeks later

But the fan left would not hit the cards, but the HDD bays...

I think water is not the best option for my case, unless I changed case, but I don't want to change it, love mine.

I think I'll discard water, I am seriously considering going eye-finity
