Hello! You have an awesome empty case and I would be more than happy to help you fill it!
6700k is a great choice, the best CPU really.
However the motherboard is not a good overclocking motherboard even though it's a z170 mobo. It only has a 4-pin power connector for the CPU and therefore it's enough if you're planning on running stocks but since you probably want to overclock you would greatly benefit from a motherboard with an 8-pin to cpu instead. My recommendation is definitely ASUS' z170i Pro Gaming (note the ''i'' after z170, means itx)
It has everything you need; a great soundcard, m.2 support and 8-pin cpu connector. Colour is a bit lame though (as it is with all itx motherboards).
Ram is good, any brand will work but remember you can only have 2 sticks of ram since you're building in itx form factor.
The psu is a great choice and it will work just fine for the New titan X that nvidia launched (on the spec they recommend a 600w psu anyways and that is with margins).
Custom watercooling is a way to go but I would recommend otherwise unless you really have a passion and TIME for it. Otherwise an AIO will suffice. But If you really want to watercool your GPU I would suggest a custom loop. You can buy like an EK kit and then just buy 2 extra fittings alongside a gpu waterblock.
Do NOT buy a new 980ti! You really only have 2 options for an enthusiast card these days. Either Nvidias NEW titan x (without GTX before it) It costs 1 200 usd from nvidia. OR you can buy nvidias new card the gtx 1080. It is also really good, you won't really need more than a 1080 IMHO.
Storage Samsung's 850 EVO series is the best ssd!
Hope I could help
