This is the first time I've built a PC since 2004, and my first stab at a custom water cooled loop. Let me know your all's thoughts. Going off the top of my head, the build includes:
Thermaltake Tower 900 case
EVGA Super Nova P2 1000 Watt power supply.
Asus Maximums X Formula Motherboard.
Delided Intel i7 8700K (6 cores, 12 threads) overclocked to a stable 5.3 Ghz.
XSPC Raystorm Neo CPU waterblock.
32GB (4x8GB sticks) G.SKILL Trident Z RGB RAM (DDR4 3000Mhz)*
Asus Strix GTX1080Ti OC edition graphics card overclocked to 2076Mhz (don't remember the memory speed exactly, but its OC'd to over 11,000Mhz).
Phanteks Glacier GPU waterblock.
2 Alphacool NexXxos RX480 radiators. 4 120mm XSPC fans on each one (PWM fans).
5 BitFeix 140mm case fans (also PWM).
2 fan controllers
2 Thermaltake Pacific water pumps.
3 500GB Samsung 950 Evo SSDs in raid 0.
RGB LED light strips to brighten up the case (tinted glass).
Primochill Vue coolant for the 2 loops (purple and blue)
Alienware 34" IPS 100hz 3440x1440 monitor (overclocked to 120hz).
Razer Ornata Chroma keyboard.
Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition mouse.
Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma headphones.

Very nice. Hope you have it plugged into a UPS/Battery Backup & Surge Protector. Protect your investment by making sure it has clean power rather than getting hit by dips and surges from the utility. Also, did you overclock the GPU or did you purchase it like that?

I manually overclocked the GPU and CPU and did several benchmarks and tests and make sure everything was stable. I did have the GPU OC'd to 2100Mhz, it would be stable on all of the benchmarks, but crash after a bit when playing the Witcher III, so I backed it down little by little until it stopped crashing and where it sits now is stable.

That's really sick. You should look into a better keyboard. I think that one is a rubber dome. If you want an entry level mechanical keyboard I'd consider something with like cherry greys. The tactile bump on those are really nice and you can lube it up if you need something smoother. If the LEDs are a concern there's always an Anne Pro, I guess. Super cheap like 60 bucks I think. That would be jumping straight into 60%s though.
