I think there is no particul way to change that kind of PSU.. if it's a nice case you just unplug everything and the PSU come from the back of the case. But Im sure you don't have anything from the ligid cooling system into the PSU...so jsut unplug everything and replug everything... the ligid cooling system could have a pump or something, but it will probably be a 12v molex plug

You have a pretty high-end system there, so if you replace the power supply, you should make sure it is capable of a lot of current on the +12v rail, and it will likely be split into two separate rails.  A 500W rating would be minimum, and quiet fans would be preferable.  Either get the same model or a Seasonic 500W with 120mm fan.

this is not really my system I wish it was they are getting the same power supply model from the manufacture I am a little bit concerned about the LiquiCool 2 Fluid Cooling System I have never messed around with one of those before I really hope
I don't have to remove that in order to install the power supply

You could get one of those new 1000w beast...there 2 time as long as a classic PSU but deliver a real lot of power... if your not that crazy about pour PSU I think that getting another 500watt good brand PSU (from $70 to $140) should be ok

Liquid cooling systems typically only cool the cpu and video card.  I doubt replacing the power supply will require changing hoses.

I am not concerned about PSU itself  for I know for sure I'm getting the correct one if this was my computer I will definitely take your advice and get the 1000w what I'm looking for is how to physically replace this power supply without any problems on this particular computer model
