Guys I would really appreciate your input on a Broadwell 1151 PC I am building for a friend who wants to go balls out on a system.

He plans to use the PC for gaming, streaming and video editing. Red and black color theme for the motherboard is a must
.

-ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII FORMULA (well aware this board is massive overkill)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813132265&cm_re=1151_motherboard-_-13-132-265-_-Product

-Intel Core I7-6700K
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117559&cm_re=1151_i7-_-19-117-559-_-Product

-G.SKILL TridentZ Series 32GB DDR4 3400
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231916

-Samsung 950 PRO Series - 512GB PCIe NVMe
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147467

-EVGA SuperNOVA 220-P2-0850-X1 850W
-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA6ZP3RK9814&cm_re=EVGA_SuperNOVA_220-P2-0850--_-17-438-056-_-Product

-Thermaltake Core P5 ATX Open Frame Panoramic (he wants a wall mounted case)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133283

He already has a 980ti in his possession, 4K TV+pc monitors and Two Identical sata SSD's

I was wondering about the RAM. Are there really any benefits to higher speed DDR4 ram and how well does it pair with this board, which ram do you think works best with this board.
Also how about the power Supply do think the EVGA is a good choice for the money.

Please if you have any suggestions or alterations to my list I would be glad to hear them as well as any other components you think may need to be added for his intended use.

Oh and what type of closed loop cooler do you recommend that is good.

Evga PSU is great but go for lower wattage, you will not need 850 watt unless you go for sli and overvoltage.

If you look in the manual of the motherboard you will find a list of memory sticks that are a good match.

860W for future proofing in case he wants to SLI, so everything else looks good? What about Mechanical drives in raid array, He will be doing alot of video editing on this PC.
