I've never tried a liquid cool setup before so it's all new to me.
Any particular reason for the i7? You won't see any performance gain over an i5 while gaming, likely better to put your money into a better GPU. In terms of a closed loop watercooler corsair makes some very easy to install coolers, I've had an h100i for around a year or so and its been fantastic for my overclocked 2500K.
