You should have one fan blowing in and all the ones at the rear of your case blowing outwards and have any side fans blowing in. If you're really into it you can mod an exhaust fan on the top of your case. Lapping your waterblock isn't really needed as its used to people with air to squeeze more out of their coolersbut if you really have the time I'd say go for it! You just might get a new watercooling setup and sell that bigwater you have there. Or just make the jump and buy a Vapochill.

*EDIT* Dunno if your motherboard can do a REALLY high FSB just to tell you... I don't think those Asus boards are known for their OCing properties.

Nice! Start a new thread in the WC section of the forums and tell them a price range and they can usually hook you up with something good.

Get your cooling fixed. It looks like your CPU is running at 54C which is WAY too hot.

That case would and should work great...

I am also new to overclocking but I have had a pretty good result from my 3800+. I think it is a pretty good overclock since I am stuck living off of some Corsair ValueSelect RAM. At the moment I am really trying to get some better cooling for my case since I get like 34C-36C idle and almost around 50C underload. I am planning on getting a 120mm and two 80mm case fans in the near future.
