Question Help me with air cooling, please...

I finally started receiving my components, I need to pick some cooling fans, heatsinks etc. I would like to upgrade cooling on every component if possible.
My PC looks like this:

AMD Athlon 64 FX60
DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 SLI-DR Expert
Dual EVGA 7900GTX
G.SKILL Extreme Series 4GB(4x1gb)
2x 74gb raptor HDD
1x 80GB 7200 rpm HDD
FSP Group 700w power supply
Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS

I need some quality cooling for this, but I want to stay away from WC, I'm too scared that a little leak could damage something, I also don't really care about loudness, as my PC is in different room(in a closet), and I have DVI cable running up inside the wall and into my office.
Thanks for all previous help in choosing the components for this badass system, I cant wait till everything gets here, and I cant start building it
-Brad

Well if you don't care about noise these are the best case fans http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/delhigper.html

Your video card cooling should be good.

For your cpu get a scythe ninja heatsink http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185122 And then pick out a 120mm fan with as high of a cfm as you want, to put on that heatsink.

p.s. I hope your getting windows vista because 4gb of RAM slows down xp.

I would really consider maybe just buying an opteron 170. Sure, they're not clocked as high, but you can fix that. And they're substantially cheaper.
