If you do use water cooling I would make sure the hoses are securely on the nozzles. But if you are using an external liquid cooling system for an example like the Zalman Reserator I would get some quick release connectors. If you do use a custom water cooling loop, make sure that the hoses are on that nozzles correctly as I mentioned earlier. But if it's like an internal water cooling that already has everything assembled like the Corsair H50 I wouldn't worry about leaks that much due the the material they've used for the hoses but just take extra precaution to make sure there are no leaks in the system.

Will I heard the H50 did a pretty good job at cooling CPUs. But i would go with a custom setup with a pc that you don't often transport. Here is a video review on the Corsair H50. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jx5usoClfDs yes this is one of 3dgameman's video reviews

I have a custom watercool'd pc and take them LAN parties several times a year. Just make sure you take the necessary precautionary measures when you transport. I don't lay my computer down, it sits upright and try to keep from moving too much. As long as everything is properly connected, it shouldn't leak.

As for custom or all-in-one, the custom looks fancy, you will have multiple options for upgrades down the line, and can cool more than just the cpu where the all-in-one is typically just cpu based. Both of which will work well. I hear the all-in-one's for cpu cooling just as good as the custom built one's.

If your plans are just to cool the cpu, then go with the all-in-one. If you want to cool cpu, video cards, north bridge, etc, then get a custom setup.

You can use Water Cooling of course. They will leak by a 0.1% chance. If you want best quality, get the Intel RTS2011LC Water Cooling Solution.
