Why do you want to watercool your northbridge? You can get adequate cooling with air. Adding an extra waterblock to the system puts more pressure on the pump and constricts waterflow. The only real reason I can see watercooling the NB is to cut down on noise. That will also save you some money.

For overclocking purposes the temperature of the NB can make a difference. Every little bit counts.

Since he has a 3.0GHz P4, he might need the NB cooling to get to 4GHz. If he only wants to get to like 3.7 or 3.8, then air cooling the NB will be fine. But why go for 3.8 when with a little cooling, he can get to 4GHz?
