This upcoming rig will be used for VM Management, Video Editing, Streaming and Gaming to name a few.  I Included a screenshot and PCPP Link with my Part List.  All feedback/suggestions are welcome, this will be my 1st time doing anything this overkill and pricey and 1st time delving into Custom Water-Cooling.
