When it comes to the Zalman vs. the Coolermaster. I don't think that the temps/dollar will be worth it. Just stick with the 212.

You mentioned being a warhammer fan. Have you tried Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War II and the subsequent expansions / stand alones? Absolute blast, will push your processor, and pretty good implementation of the rules. Retribution would be the one to try now, it just came out as a stand alone Dawn of War II game to good reviews. Also the DOW2 / Chaos Rising pack goes on sale on steam every so often. I picked it up a few months ago before retribution and am still slaying Orks, Eldar, and Tyranids in both campaign and last stand.

How are the temps on the 1090 at 4 with that 212? Could consider a better cooling solution. Going underwater could be a good project and will last you through more upgrades. Might hold off on putting the motherboard underwater and just upgrade to a 990fx board when they come out. nvidia reached an agreement with amd and sli should be officially supported on the 990fx boards.

tldr: Second 460, better cpu cooler, and Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War II

EDIT: rereading you already have sli 460s. keep those and wait for the amd 7xxx and nvidia 6xx for the process shrinks. The new amd cards might be here before bf3.
44c under full load, 22c aambient, yes I have Dow, and Dow 2 and all packs, however I have a 6000 point space marine army, they are good games that I play once and awhile, mostly last stand, as I perfer to play the real game, my 460s are doing good, and my cooler is ok for air and price, but I might go water later on, so, I didn't want to spend the price of a good air system, when I can get an h70 for 65 shiped, hmm, wanna play some last stand some time lol

h70 for 65 shipped is a pretty good deal.

If you want to put the cards under water (check if there are blocks if custom pcbs), you might just want to invest in a wc loop kit, like a rasa kit. The smallest is rs240

Would check in wc forums for rec size for your cpu and 2 460s. You might want the rx360. Or two 240 reservoirs. I'm not sure how you modded the case and how good the antec 900 is for wc to begin with.

Lol I've been playing BFBC2 with a friend and then some DOW2 last stand just a little while ago. Gonna send PM if you want to play some last stand sometime.

I can understand $20 shipped for a Hyper 212+, great price
But I can't understand $20 shipped just for the second fan for pull!?
(Unless it's a $20 Delta, in which case you'd want to buy two as matching fans are best!)

I personally don t like the motherboard chipset.
It is old/outdated ,it is from Nvidia (so you may have issues with a Creative soundcard) and it overheats (thus lower life time).

Of course this means looking for an AMD chipset based mobo + ATI cards which you may not like if you prefer Nvidia GPU-s.
As an ex Nvidia GPU user i can say ATI is ok GPU wise ,but only if you want to switch.I also tend to belive ATI is better in higher resolutions in the middle range "area" GPU-s ,based on my own subjective observations.
I personally switched to ATI because my last 2 Nvidia cards malfunctioned prematurelly (due to GPU issues it seems).

i live in a place, where getting stuff shipped can be a challange, and the local store doesnt have the best selection and because i have a 900, i just made it so every fan is a antec fan, however, he does alot special orders, and sells them at a pretty cheap price, ive thought of doing a full loop for my gpus, but i will probally just get a h70 down the line.

question: any benifits to getting a second sdd for games? (bfbc2/3, old republic, games like skyrim, which i assume will be lots of constant loading as its basically one giant area)

thanks
