Default Swapping Boards w/ Koolance Liquid Cooler

Ok, so in case no one knows...i just bought an Alienware ALX pc off my buddy for $100 bucks. The specs are in my sig...

Long story short...I want to upgrade the mobo. I have a DFI nf4 UT in my exisiting rig, but would love to swap it out and put it in the Alienware rig.

The problem here is I have the Koolance Liquid Cooling System hooked up to this Alienware rig and I need to know what the difficulty rating would be to unhook this and swap boards? I have never worked with Liquid Cooling Systems.

I talk to the guy who I bought off for and did not recommend doing this because he said I would have to mod the CPU cooling block.

The reason I want to swap is to O/C more efficiently with the DFI, yet I will lose SLI ability. I don't know if I care for that since I just bought an 8800gts (g92). If I ever wanted to, I know there is a mod out there to mod the DFI board to make it SLI. It involves a no2 pencil and poking out some sort of soldered connection...

Anyway, what do you guys think? Is it worth messing with?
