Watercooling a 1950, 2950x, and 3950X(?)?

First time doing a custom loop. Will this keep a 1950X and 2950X under 68C at 4.1+ GHz and is this everything I need? I would ask about the 3950X, but I don't know what AMD is doing for Zen 2 Threadripper yet. I am waiting to see what AMD announces before I upgrade from my faithful 1950X.

Block:

Fittings:

Tubing
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ZC0U0WG/

Pump/Reservoir
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074G45WMR/

Radiator
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06X6M8ZCS/

Coolant:
https://www.amazon.com//dp/B078G9Q63P/

Do I need any barbs for this setup?

Note that I only plan on cooling my CPU at this time. My 1080ti stays plenty cool, and I don't overclock it. It doesn't reach a high enough overclock to warrant the trouble. What type of fans would use? I have some RGB ML120s, but they are low RPM. I could also use 3k RPM Noctuas or 2450 RPM Enermax fans. I have several different fans already, all varying in speeds/features.

Edited to replace the fittings with a 6 pack.

After reading various water-block tests for my 2950X build, I settled on the Watercool Heatkiller IV TR though the XSPC Raystorm is good also.

How about everything else? Am I missing anything? It's my first custom loop. I will actually be buying a 2950X when my X399 Carbon comes back from RMA. That board pulls 400 watts ez.
