Default The Ultimate Cooling Solution?

I am preparing to create the ultimate cooling setup. Please let me know what you think.

For the CPU:

For the GPU/chipset:

For the Raptors:

For the RAM (system and video card):

Here is my system:

Abit IC7-G mobo
P4 3.2 800FSB
2 GB Corsair XMS dual channel PC3200 RAM (may be changed to 1 GB OCZ DDR550)
(2) 74 GB Raptors in RAID 0
Radeon 9700 Pro (being replaced by X800 XT once it has been released for a month or two)
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Platinum
Lian Li 61 case (front 80mm fan, rear 80mm, top 120mm blowhole)
Enermax 550 watt PSU (rear and bottom 80mm fans)
PCI slot cooler (20 cfm exhaust)
Samsung 16X DVD
Plextor 52X CD-RW
NEC 8X CD+RW dual layer

I realize that I can cut back on a lot of the fans once I get the water/phase cooling in. I will still keep them all going, just slowly to keep heat from building up. I also realize that the fan coolers don't work that well on hard drives, but I don't want to fool with water cooling them and I don't have any extra 5 1/4" bays to fit them in a containment-type cooler. Any feedback on this idea is greatly appreciated.
