First Time Pc Build (Gaming, Video Editing and Blender)

I have recently decided that it was time to upgrade my pc to be more suitable for what I use it for. I am currently running a Core 2 Duo E8400 and am trying to render 500 frame animations in Blender. It will take all night and a few hours into the morning to finish. We are talking 10-12 hours to render the Animation. I also play a lot of BattleField 3, Black Ops 2, TF2, Portal 1 & 2 and Minecraft. (I want to be able to use a 512x512 resource pack in minecraft)

I also do lots of 1080p Video Rendering. (I am a Youtuber) I thought that the fx 8320 seemed well suited for the job. (I can't afford an i7 lol) I want to be able to play minecraft, run a minecraft server, have around 10 Firefox tabs open and be rendering a 1080p video on some of the idle cores at the same time, will that be possible with this build? I just got my list of parts together on PcPartpicker and wanted to know if this system is well suited for what i do and if any of the parts are incompatible. I only threw in the water cooling because i was worried about the ram getting in the way and it was about the same price as the air cooler i was looking at. Also, will the cooler allow for a decent OC? (Aiming for 4.0Ghz at the least) I also already own a GTX 570 that I plan to use as the GPU for this build.

Also, will the cooler even fit into the case? I am new to the whole idea of water cooling. Does the radiator need a special mounting spot in the case, or can it just be put somewhere in the place of a fan?
