Water blocks for an 1156 are pretty easy there are quite a few that you can choose from since 1156 chips are easy to cool.
These are a few that will do well(make sure you get 1156 versions):
EK Supreme HF
Swiftech Apogee XT
Koolance 360(decent cooler even though its Krapance)
and my personal preference Heatkiller 3.0
Here is a good round up of a few blocks
Edit: What case do you have by the way?

My suggestion to you since this is your first endeavor is, do not rush it, plan on it taking a week of no pc time. Its better to take forever and test things for 24 hours, then to brick your pc because you rush it. After you get one or two systems under your belt then you can cut corners :)

I can assure you spilling distilled water won't damage any components that aren't powered as long as you give it a day or two to dry.
Here was a pic when I did mine(disregard the dog he is a camera hog), paper towels or shop rags are key :)

Thing is, its only cooling for the cpu, so no gpu loops. It wont be too hard to get in and out of the front or side of the case. Just gota make sure the tubing is of proper length for each component.

To each his own I guess. Good Luck :)
And yes that is the reason I got this breed of dog, easy Halloween costumes.

Well.. got it all together, took friggen forever. I almost got it perfect but i was a couple cm's short on one hose and its got a wee bend in it, not that much that it is a kink but its acceptable to me. When i turned my pc on the damn thing was idleing at 20C. Once i got everything situated i ran prime 95 for 10 mins or so to get max heat out of the cpu @4.2 ghz. Never broke 60 C. Thats like... 18 degrees better on max load than that h50. Best part, pc is twice as quite :) Ill get some pics tomorrow, im tired as hell from messing with this pc all damn day.
yes a wall of text.. sue me :P

The only real way would to make your cables custom length, which is too much trouble IMHO.
