College Gaming/workstation (watercooled build) $4000

Ok... So first off, I'd like to apologize for my earlier post (was in a hurry and just wanted some opinions while in class). But anyways, I have happened to have stumbled onto some extra money (almost $1000) so i am splurging i guess. NOTE I MIGHT JUST GO WITH MY FORMER BUILD AND NOT WATERCOOL IT

The purpose of this build is for gaming, 3D modeling, streaming, editing +recording video,a lot of rendering (whether it be video or models) and lastly slight music production.

Things i want:

-I would like the ASUS hero VII board (looks amazing and is extremely good)

-An Intel i7 4770k (its good for gaming and work)

-EITHER the Asus 780 Poseidon or the Powercolor r9 290x LCS (they arent on PcPartPicker so I went with the lightning because it is similar in specs and price as the LCS

-16GB of ram

-A white/red/black colour scheme

-The NZXT P630 case

-My selected peripherals and monitor

-The White FRACTAL DESIGN psu (or any white PSU to be honest)

Other than that, change whatever. PLEASE help me out with watercooling supplies that I would need and tips on setting it up. This is quite overwhelming and is making me a little nervous. CHEERS gents.

Most high end GPU's cant run max settings (all ultra presets+8msaa) at 60fps for most games (crisis, fc3, metro, etc) so 2 gpus is that sorta extra oomph so I can lock down 60fps or greater on all games.
