 I've seen the board, I think it's a response to the Asus Maximus LE being snapped up and sold out so quickly.  With chip sets and chip heat going the way it is I think we'll be seeing more of this in the enthusiast market.

It's stock.  If I were going to run it on my water setup though I'd be going with tubing off the nozzles to quick disconnects and NEVER remove the tubing from the nozzles.  The stress from pulling the tubing off might be to much for the mosfet cooling block.  Break one seal on that setup and you pretty much trashed the water cooling.
