FX-60 is alright. I run it constantly at 3.0(200*15)@1.5V with no problems. Like most of them its only able to clock to about 3.0~3.1 on water at a safe voltage. i have pushed it to 3.2~3.25 in the past but the voltage was around 1.62 or something which is a lot. My chip is no longer prime95 stable even at stock speeds, i think because I pushed too much voltage through it. I'm gonna be making a peltier water block this summer and then we'll see how it really performs. You've got a pretty serious system and watercooling seems to be the next logical step. I'm gonna pick up a 4400+ next month and see how close I can get it to my fx-60. If it works well it might be a good option when you look to go dual core, unless you're holding out for AM2+. At this point I would have to say stay away from the fx-60 unless you are going peltier or phase because of the price. I got mine in a $400 bundle with about $200 worth of other stuff, but at almost $500 its hard to justify(i still love it though nd if you find it for a good price its nice to have).

WC setup: Started off with a Gigabyte Galaxy II that I got open box from newegg for $90(unbeatable for a full working watercooling setup). I have since added a HWlabs 3x120 rad, an MCW60 and MCWRamcool for my 7950. I am hoping to pick up an apogee gtx soon to replace this gigabyte cpu block because the area contacting the cpu is really small. The gigabyte kit was a perfect way to get into watercooling(though I wouldn't have bought it at full price). The pump/reservoir combo i'm probably gonna keep for a while cause it seems to be working well, looks nice, and has a low coolant protection but the thing is freakin huge.

Your setup should be a monster on water. I don't know how well those fx-55's clock but if youre at 3.04 on air you should see some serious gains. Any plans for going dual core on the 939 or are you gonna wait for new Phenom chips?

So, how's this coming mhill?

I'm a week late replying, but seriously, if money isn't an option here, I would go with a cheapy loop for your NB, SB, and GPUs. Then buy a used phase change unit for around $400-500.
