I dont see the benefit of watercooling, from temps I've seen, since a lot of new fans are dropping the temps, if you really want to go extreme then Phase change is the best.

I honestly dont see how you'll effectively have a phase change unit on a GPU, yopu probably will not be able to run SLI or have more than 1 PCI card, sicne the tubing is large and not as flexible like water tubing, good luck though.

...yea that will be a problem, I plan on SLI too.
