That water block won't work for the GPU... The 3gb 580 is not a reference design. I haven't seen any waterblocks for the MSI Lightening which is a nonreference design. I've only seen waterblocks for the Palit/Gainword 3gb 580s (they are both nonreference but use the same PCB).

If you're going Nvidia Surround then you need to pretty much get three of the same exact monitors. It goes beyond need ing the same resolution.

Do you really need to water cool your pc?

Just buy a Noctua NH-D14 or a Thermalright Silver Arrow and you should be getting the best temps on air, what more do you need than that?
