I am looking for some advice on liquid cooling my PC.  My office is in a loft and the temp is typically 4-5 degrees warmer than the house due to the heat generated from my PC.  I beleive I have maxed out the cooling capacity but the machine still runs warm.  I have a Cooler Master Cosmos case with 4 120mmm fans, I cut a hole out of my desk and put a bathroom exhaust fan that moves 120CFM of air from under the desk.  My cpu runs around 65C, bith video cards run at 70 C under normal use.  I am hoping liquid cooling will help deal with the heat better and cut down on the noise from all of these fans.

My system:
Zalman 1000W Cont power supply
AMD Phenom 9950 X4
Rosewill 92 mm CPU cooler
4 GB Corsair Dominator DDR2 1066 RAM
2 ATI Radeon 4850 Video Cards
Velociraptor 300 GB System Drive
Seagate Raid 0,1  4 drives, 750 GB each
DVD Burner,
Blue Ray Drive
Creative Xfi sound card
