I think you forgot about the pump.

To OP: I would go for the i7-3960X. Sandy-Bridge CPU's overclock like a boss. If you really want the best then I would go for the i7-4930K. Their both good. The 4930K is just slightly better.

Well they are really different CPU's.

The 3960X is mean specifically for overclocking and productivity. The 4930K is more all around, meaning its good for gaming, productivity and overclocking. Basically, save yourself like $600 and get the 4930k. Use that $750 (Including the Swiftech H320 I suggested) and get a custom loop done.

What you will need for that custom loop is the following.
GPU Waterblocks (Also switch the GTX 780ti's to the stock cooler varient. Meaning it has 1 fan at the end of the card)
CPU waterblock
2x 280mm Radiators (often listed as 140mmx2)
Reservoir/pump combo (because they are the easiest to install)
Various fittings and tubing.
Now the problem with custom loop watercoolers is that they take tons of planning, removing of the stock coolers on the GPU's and various other things. Basically it takes A LOT of knowhow to put together a custom loop. I would personally go get that Swiftech I suggested, then save the rest and get a custom loop later when you feel more comfortable doing so.

*EDIT*
Also I forgot to mention that the i7-3960X is last generation, the 4930K is current.
