Sooooo, sounds fun, but why watercooling??? If your not gaming, OCing, or a modder, the only other reason I could think of would be heavy rendering or photo editing, but you say your a computer engineer... You know you can get a spot in the 540club without watercooling, right? If the looks of water is what your going for thought, by all means, go for it, I'll be looking forward to seeing how it turns out!!

If you just have to use water cooling (and seeing as how you seem to have an aversion to a major miss-hap) why not forego the custom loop and install a Corsair H100i instead? Fully self contained and bolts right into the Cosair Air 540.
