You guys know what you're talking about, and so I should trust you.
I'm going with the Corsair H80 after all.
Few questions about it though:
The h80's radiator seems to be smaller than the h100, so it looks like I'll fit the radiator on the rear exhaust fan. Is that possible?
Can I hook a liquid cooling system to my GPU as well as my CPU and have it circulate between them? Which cooling systems enable this? Does the H80 support something like that?
I think going with an H80 is a good choice personally, if it does leak which is very rare Corsair has a great warranty system in place, you can find threads on it here.
Definitely you can hook up an H60 or H80 to your GPU depending on what you have, Dwood is an artisan here that makes bracket to fit a liquid cooler onto your GPU and it's simply awesome, my GTX 570 never went over 55C playing BF3 on ultra using his bracket and an Antec 620.
Here's a picture from my blog of what the bracket looks like, I didn't have a 92mm fan on it yet nor my heatsink kit from arctic cooling but it was one of the best decisions I ever made for cooling, and it's cheap!
Anyone who says it's not worth it, hasn't done it!
Send Dwood a pm and ask about his bracket and a recommended heatsink kit for your GPU and never look back!
