Originally built this in 6th grade for light gaming, as I've grown I've gotten into more serious gaming (Call of Duty, Counterstrike, Rainbow 6 Siege) and I've slowly upgraded along the way (I think the original price was around $600). CPU cooler and case aren't listed on PCPartPicker anymore and it's been so long I forgot the names sorry lmao. Overall I'm happy with it and I think in the future I'll look into watercooling the CPU and GPU to overclock it.

You could probably overclock that CPU with your air cooler there. I learned from personal experience that outside of cases with really bad airflow or really small mini ITX cases watercooling ( AIO's specifically ) are not much better than a decent air cooler.

Unless you are doing custom loops which can be designed to be better at cooling than anything else keep in mind they can be extremely expensive.

That GPU has a good enough cooler to overclock quite a bit.

Your build looks very personal which are the kinds of builds that make looking at completed builds enjoyable. +1 from me.

So why is the CPU cooling fan upside down? Downdraft coolers rely on air being forced downward to draw heat away from the heatsink and simultaneously cool surrounding components.

4790k is a good chip can get 4.5 pretty easy. Overall good build but I can't help but notice the CPU fan looks off.
