OK sorry I usually try to restrain from being a, well you get it but please dont make a post on something like this when you dont know what the heck you are talking about. You spread info that is not even related to the question and hopefully noone is stupid or inexperienced enough to follow your suggestion.
Ok since your hoses carrying the water will be potentially below the point of condenstaion and therefore will create moisture/water drops/ whatever you wanna call it you need to proof them just like you would a tec/phaseunit.
Basically there are many ways to do this but from what I have scene you need to get some type of pipe tubing insulation. Usually home depot or similer is good now put this on your tubing running up to the cpu/gpu and seal it at its seem very good. Use whatever type of tape like black electrical tape that will stick to plastic/tygon tubing to seal the end that is away from the cpu.
Now for the head of the cpu you use the same type of setup that you would for a TEC. Look up some of the guides. Basically there are a couple of methods. For one you want to make a seal that prevents any air from getting in as this is what will bring moisture. The back of the mobo will need either a conformal coating of some kind coupled with a closed cell foam/ neoprene on the back behind the cpu. Now you dont have to do the spray or whatever on the back as long as you get a good seal. Usually what I do it get some dielectric grease and put that on the back then the foam over that then the backplate of the attachment for the cpu block. What this does is makes a airtight seal via the foam and the greese when it is compressed.
Now for the front side you will something similer, basically a foam/neoprene section cut out that sits around the cpu socket. Use the dielectric greese bewtween this and the mobo and press it down on there. Now the water bloack should have some kind of Foam or neoprene wrapped around it and sealed up to the hose covering insulation that you have on there. Make sure that these two are sealed together very well. Now your water bloack all wrapped up is pressed agains t the foam insulation on your mobo around the socket with a nice layer of greese between it. This forms a air tight seal when you tighten it down.
You will also want to put some dieelctric greese in the socket under the cpu to protect the cpu pin area from condensation and corrosion or pin rot as its called.
I kno9w we dont have many guides around here but if you need one I could try and take some pictures and show you how its done for the most part. I think there are some good guides at VR-Zone and XS in there extremem cooling section that will give you a good idea of how to get it done.
