Personally I would stay away from as rock amd boards. I've had two die within a year due to poor vrm cooling and capacitors not up to scratch. Their Intel variants are much better but not really relevant in this case.

I would recommend the msi 970 gaming or 990 gaming. Excellent board with great vrm and power delivery for 8 core cpu and over clocking.

As for the r7 gpu, if your looking to do anything intensive ie gaming or rendering etc then go for a r9 variant such as r9 380. No point wasting money on the r9 380x or x of whichever you choose as most of them will overclockers to this anyway.

Everything else looks good but maybe if your looking at custom water loop try looking at raijintek triton as a starter base. It's an all in one water cooler but made from custom loop parts so it looks great off the bat with custom color dyes and can be expanded with new fittings tubing res pump rad etc. Great way to start water cooling on a budget and for beginners I say. I have one on a fx 8350 and idle it's 16c and load in prime 95 it's 59c overclocker to 4.4ghz. Depending on your chip expect similar.

Look forward to your choices and good luck in your new build.
