Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 Pro and above.
RAM: Anything that is capable of doing 1600MHz at 1.5v and CL9 or better.
Water Cooling: Why not just slap on a corsair H80?

im thinking of either doing the H100 or a complete watercooling set up and watercool the gpu and chipset too. A compleete watercooling kit could be nice if i overclock the graphic card(s) too thinking about buying a ATI 69 series card.
btw, what is the difference between (pro,evo and deluxe) on the asus p67 motherboards?
memorywise i see the supported speeds are (1066 MHz, 1333 MHz, 1600 MHz, 1866 MHz, 2133 MHz, 2200 MHz.)
Can i use theese (CORSAIR 12GB DDR3 VENGEANCE PC3-16000 2000MHZ CL10 (3X4GB)) chips eventhou they arnt exactly in the same speed as supported ?
if theese ram chips dont work with the motherboard. which would be prefered for overclocking?
I also wonder if there is any socket 1155 motherboards around with the capability of 6 slots of ram?
I just want to buy the optimal parts to achieve a nice and painless overclock
