There are lots of things i'd change with this build, seems like your over spending a lot.

Fill out the sticky 'how to ask for newbuild advice' and we'll be in a much better position to help you. It's likely you'll be able to get a rig that's just as good for gaming and should save you some cash.

It's a f***ing overkill for a guy like you, I would downgrade everything in that list, you don't need all that. What are you going to do with a i7 3930k? Are you overclocking? Based on your questions - no, you wont overclock. Take a i5 instead, along with that you need a need a new mobo. Forget the liquid cooling, the stock fan is just great. Keep the Hdd, ssd and video card.
There you go, you'll be able to play games maxed out for few years.

For gaming. Buy:

1.CPU- Intel Core i7 3770K

2.Motherboard- Asus Maximus V Formula

3.RAM- 8GB @ 1600MHz

4.Graphics Card- GTX 680 2GB if gaming at 1080p and 4GB if gaming at 2560x1440 or higer

5.SSD- Crucial M4 256GB

6.Power Supply- Corsair HX850

7.Hard Drive- Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB

8.CPU Cooler- Corsair H100i/NZXT Kraken X60/ Noctua NH-D14

9.Case- Cooler Master Storm Trooper/ NZXT Phantom 820/ Thermaltake Level 10 GT
Note- Choose a good case from a reputable brand. An normal sized mid tower
is enough for the build eg. Corsair 500R, Fractal Design R4. And buy a case
with USB 3.0 which supports its 20-pin header.

This is a kickass gaming build for cheaper than your current one.
