Let me try to do this without having all my thoughts scattered...

I'm currently building a PC that I want to be a primary folding machine. I game very lightly, so i'm not too concerned with gaming. This is what I have already.
Rosewill Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Rosewill PHOTON Series 850W Full Modular Power Supply
ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero AM4 AMD X370
AMD RYZEN 7 1800X 8-Core 3.6 GHz
Hydro Series™ H100i Extreme Performance CPU Cooler
G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200
MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X

I wanted to wait till the aftermarket gtx 1080 ti's come out. Preferably the Seahawk x https://www.msi.com/Graphics-card/GeForce-GTX-1080-Ti-SEA-HAWK-X.html#hero-overview.
My case is big, but not meant for custom liquid cooling without some heavy mods, but does have good airflow, and I don't have much experience with AIO's. I wanted to know if I should go this route to be able to get decent cooling, with a decent OC, but not be limited on temperature due to the dual graphics cards. I pretty much want to see if someone can offer any insight into this build, and it is possible that i'll end up selling my gtx 1070 and swap it out for another 1080 ti aio in the future, so any thoughts on that would be appreciated as well.

Mobo : Crosshair Hero IV : AMD Ryzen 7 1800X
Ram : G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) GPU : MSI GTX 1070 GAMING X || EVGA GTX 1080 Hybrid
Cool : Corsair H100i PSU : Rosewill PHOTON Series 850W Full Modular
