I went and got the Corsair H50 liquid cooling setup and got it installed. Everything is working fine there and cpu temp is staying down around 32C. Now I need some advice on the various settings for this board/cpu combo to get it up and running good.

What I am after is good solid performance while remaining stable. I really dont know much about the various voltages and what the max settings are or how they affect overall performance so if someone has some advice or explanations that would be great.

UPDATE:

So I went into the BIOS and disabled the C1E, spread spectrum on the CPU, and PCIE. Manually set the DRAM voltage to 1.56, set all 6 cores to "on" and disabled the turbo core option. Everything else is set yo auto.

Using AMD Overdrive I have it running at running at 3.813 Ghz by setting the multiplier to 19. CPU temp remains at 32C.

Am I headed in the right direction? Should I make other adjustments? If so, what adjustments, and what are the max limits?

Thanks

Limits are set by your temps.
In bios you need to switch off cool n quiet. set CPU voltage manually as if left on Auto, with clocks it will increase itself. Set it at 1.35v and check stability with prime 95 blend test for few hours. Watch the temps of the system.
Also it is recommended to switch to High Performance profile in Power Options at Control Panel. And don't rush with increasing frequencies. Do it step by step. increase a little bit, check stability, if stable, go further. Always check temperatures on load(55-60C is your max). If unstable either increase the voltage to 1.36v(if temps are ok), or reduce the CPU frequency if temps are too high.
When you find you max stable with CPU, try clocking CPU-NB as this frequency gives you quite a punch in performance as well.
Also leave HT clock at 2000Mhz as increasing it does not give you any performance benefits.

You can overclock that 1090t very easy to 4.0 and should no have any real temp problem. Set the chip to 4.0 using the multiplier<< I think that's 19 @ 1.45v. You may even be able to drop the volts a touch and still have a stable overclock if you notice the temps getting up there. Keep the HT at 2000 like Muziqaz said and keep your cpu nb around 2800 @1.275 v. and stress. Give us your results. Keep an eye on them temps!!! But you should be pretty good with that cooler.
