The computer will be abled to be cooled and have the water kept at room tempertuares even when overclocked hard

More flow rate will give better heat transfer of cpu to waterblock.

At a certain poin't increacing flow rate further will have no affect on heat trasnfer of cpu to waterblock.

At an extreme, to get even better heat trasnsfer a more flat surface is needed and a more coundutive material is reqired

given that we do not increace surface area of cpu and waterblock

No theory needed, already exists:

Looks a little overwhelming if you aren't familiar with doing physics forumlae, but there is a nice break down of what every one of those variables represents.

edit: This explains it a lot better:

The heat transfer coefficient you want to know will be anything from 400 W/m2K to only 20 W/m2K. Multiply that value with the surface area of the pipe (in m2), and by the temperature difference (in Celsius or Kelvin), and you get a power (in Watts), which can be used to calculate how much your water will increase in temperature - depending on the flow rate.

Too lazy to do the math, but if you would like you can easily calculate the effects of increasing or decreasing flow rates and how they effect the heat exchange if you have a couple hours to do the measurements and the math.
