    I am quite similiar with building in a desk and you are using the same setup as mine so here is my advice(s):
    Edit:
    Since you are going with 780 Ti and watercooling I suggest you should use EVGA 780ti copper which is prebuilt with a waterblock. Just make sure you use right fittings!

    First of all its all matter of a choice so you can go with any cooling kits but I would suggest xspc raystorm 750 kit or any nice kit with big radiators. As you dont have any problems with space I suggest a 360mm radiator. If you are going with only cpu style cooling normal pump-res combos are good but if you are going to go with cpu and gpu or extra long tubing buy an over the line pump. Also dont use 90degree brakes. You should put your radiators in a pull/push config and make sure you have good airflow all over the setup. And use dust filters. Also check the water cooling sticky!
