I've been out of the overclocking game for a few years so don't know too much about overclocking newer CPUs etc however this thread may be of some assistance;
Exactly what I was thinking @imi4tth3w
You may wish to consider a Mobo like the Asus 970 pro/gaming aura. Has newer connection technologies like USB 3.1 and m.2 as well as RGB.
Yes it will. The crosshair formula z V CPU support list includes phenom CPUs including 1090.
Sapphire, Asus, gigabyte and power color. Gigabyte would be my favorite. Have had more of these than any other.
I used a NHD14 for several years before getting into custom liquid. It was very effective so I'm sure the D15 would be also. Very quiet as well. The d14 had 44mm of clearance over ram slots. The D15 has the ram issue covered as the pictures as crazyelf has shown. I have seen good reviews of the latest cooler master AIOs. Noise seems less of an issue than the H100.
I have a powrcolour 7990 and its beastly to look at ;-)
the more recent Nvidia GPUs look really nice.
Noctua NH-T1 is my preferred paste. Having said that I dont think the stock paste is particularly bad ether. Application is more important than the paste.
You missed point about quality...Cheap is exactly that in IT even though there is suh a thing as over priced hype (Alien Machines for instance) Lower price points come at a cost of overall quality and performace. I suspect your customer will know quality when they see it. I certainly do and so have my customers in the past. Id be looking at used but better overall as you sugested.
