I think you should have gone for a different case to be honest, if you're not watercooling you can buy cases that look good for less money than the 800D. It's pretty much top of the range.
And with regard to overclocking, it's really not that hard to get a reasonable overclock (and you don't need water to do it). To be honest if you are worried about overclocking, then you're definitely not ready to water cool!
For overclocking, luckily you're in the right place, as this forum even has it in the name
Have a read through some of the threads on overclocking, and make sure you understand what's going on etc first, then you can try small overclocks to start off with. Overclocking basically gives you something for almost nothing (at least monetarily). Free performance boost is always good
