For my build I want to use these parts (for CPU and GPU)

Intel i7-4930k 3.4 GHz LGA 2011 Boxed processor
-Number of cores: 6
-T-Speed of 3.9
-Core: Ivy Bridge


02G-P4-3765-KR NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Superclocked ACX Cooler 2048MB GDDR5 PCIe x16 3.0 Video Card

-Here's a link to the Video Card

My one concern is will it bottleneck
I don't know much about. All I know is it means it can't keep up with the other parts speed.

Ivy Bridge-E? Bottlenecking a humble GTX 760? No, no. Rest assured.
But this CPU is quite too much for this GPU, if it's gaming what you're aiming at. Not a wise purchase unless you really need the IB-E power for some CPU oriented work.

Using this for gaming? The 4930K is awesome, but overkill and provide no added value over a 4770K for gaming.

Will either part bottleneck each other? Nope

I am planing on recording game play. I'm also gonna do video editing.
So this wont bottleneck the GTX but its kinda overkill for just gaming.

Yes, a big overkill for gaming.
A 4770K could do the trick of video editing / game recording easily. You could use the difference to purchase a much stronger GPU and hence have a better gaming experience.

In fact, even a cheaper i5 4670K should't suffer as long you aren't absolutely needing to shave minutes of work.

Okay I already have the CPU but not the GPU. If you have any recommendations for GPUs let me know.

About $400
I don't really have a budget to go off of. I'm gonna get the rest of the parts as I get money i just wanna keep it in a rang where i can earn enough without thinking i'm never gonna get there.

Assuming that you have a PSU that can handle one, go for a GTX 770. It's a nice step up comparing to the GTX 760's performance.

An R9 280x or a 4gb GTX 770 would fit the bill for that budget. Some have complained of running out of v-ram with the 2gb 770.

Does anyone know of a good enough CPU cooler I did some research and found that the CPU I have will or can get really hot without a good CPU cooler and thermal paste. So if anyone knows of a good CPU cooler (preferably a water cooler) please let me know.

Depends on what your case can support. What case do you have?

Here's a CPU cooler I found that should fit in my case

Never mind the cooler I listed up above is kinda known for leaking or doing something bad to the mother board.

Which phantom in particular do you have? I haven't heard anything bad about the Kraken line. I would take newegg reviews with a grain of salt. You don't know what kind of abuse these so called experts put the cooler under while installing it or to their system in general. Any water cooler has the potential to leak.
